500ml Amaro Bottle
Italian influence, Tasmanian terroir.
Amaro means bitter in Italian and is a bittersweet digestivo.
I discovered Amaro on one particular trip to Sicily, and was instantly hooked. I fell head over heels in love when I discovered the variety of Amari, and particularly when I researched further and found the nuance each region in Italy brings to their own local varieties. Whether it's the Alpine slant of Braulio, the warm sweetness of Sicilian Averna or floral complexity of Montenegro - there is huge range in this group of digestivi (much like the botanical range in gin).
Osare's local barrel-aged interpretation of Amaro balanced Tasmanian, Asian and European botanicals to deliver sharp spice, aromatic citrus and lingering bitterness.
I've set out to create an Amaro which will utlise the best of Italian traditions and botanicals, with complementary Australian methods and botanicals to make a truly unique spirit which is evocative of Tasmania. Something that will bring back the romance and nostalgia of an Italian trip but at the same time feel truly Tasmania.
Osare Amaro was awarded a Silver medal at the 2022 Tasting Australia Spirit Awards.
Osare Amaro was used for Lark Distillery to season casks for a collaborative Whisky.
Fragrant spice with subtle citrus undertones
Sharp spice delivered from a symphony of spices, but unmistakable pepperberry which leads through layered warmth of green garden herbs, all underscored by refined caramel sweetness.
Bitterness is present throughout but traditional Italian bittering roots come to the fore at the finish, balanced with toasty biscuit tones.
