Amaro Montenegro is Everything you want in a Digestif
Hailing from the 19th century, Amaro Montenegro is used to create unique cocktails. With notes of vanilla and orange peels, it’s the perfect amaro for many beverage choices, which the artisan distiller thought was high time descended itself upon Melbourne. And that in great style, too.
Its signature cocktail, the Monte Pina is light fruity and sweet. Soft, delicate and distinctly refined despite a hefty inclusion of peach, pineapple and grapefruit, the citrus works wonderfully with an alcohol more suited to a refined nose.
Harking back to the days of old – foundation times, even – the Montenegro Monte Mule cocktail is always a fine option for those whose homage to the citrus notes found in the otherwise fruity after-dinner digestif. A more contemporary take on the classic Moscow Mule, of sorts, amaro proves its versatility, Italian refinement and appropriate end-of-the-night qualities that darishly enough leave you wanting more.
