Amaro Lucano Bitter 700ml - Italy


Amaro Lucano 700ml - Italy

A medium bitter Italian Amaro, slightly sweeter then Abano or Cynar. Notes of cola, coffee, eucalyptus and mint, with a balanced herbal bitterness. A classically styled Amaro commonly used as a substitute for Amer Picon in the United States.
Use as a substitute for Amer Picon, or when a fruity yet complex citrusy amaro is called for. Can be drunk neat or over ice.


Amaro Lucano was originally created in 1894 by Pasquale Vena, a pastry chef who blended more than 30 herbs - some of them being wormwood, absinthe gentile, clary sage, achillea moscata, cardo santo, sweet orange, angelica, gentian, elder, rue and aloe -  into a wonderful tincture. In 1900 Amaro Lucano gained notoriety all over the Kingdom of Italy, after the Vena family became the official supplier to the House of Savoy, whose coat of arms appears on the label.

In 1950, the workshop became an industrial enterprise under the management of Vena's sons Leonardo and Giuseppe and in 1965 a new factory in the frazione Pisticci Scalo was opened.
