Tasting Notes

By popular demand, this legendary amaro from Italy is finally available stateside for the first time ever. Braulio is made in the true Alpine style from a venerated estate begun by Francesco Peloni over a century ago. Located in Valtellina, near the border with Switzerland, this amaro is made from a secret recipe of over 20 mountain herbs and botanicals, which are gathered and used to create this one-of-a-kind spirit. Foresty, herbaceous, and piney, with a floral character and a distinct menthol note. Intense concentration with a touch of medicinal spice that speaks to the original purposes of these ancient potions. Very refreshing, with a pungent bitterness.

Staff Pick Notes

The Alpine amaro to rule them all. What's amaro you ask? Literally, it means "bitter" in Italian and has come to be used as the blanket term for all bittersweet, herbal liqueurs around the world. While there are no legal definitions of the category, it is helpful to break it down into sub-types when discussing the different flavors and ingredients to be found within. Braulio is one of the very few amari of the Alpine style that is currently exported to the US. From the spa town of Bormio, in the Italian Alps, it shows a strong note of pine, alongside wildflower honey, bitter citrus, and wild mountain herbs. Taste it for yourself and see why this balanced and complex Amaro is a favorite among aficionados of this type of liqueur.
