The secret of Amaro Alpino

The secret of Amaro Alpino

Initially conceived as a medicine, this type of liqueurs was produced with the purpose of remedying a state of physical discomfort. The alcohol inside was used to extract the active substances from the herbs, through the infusion process, and to preserve the product.

Year after year, at the beginning of the twentieth century, this type of liqueurs became a perfect after-meal drink, used to facilitate digestion and to brighten up convivial moments. Amaro Alpino is used also as ingredient in cocktails.
