Nepéta Amaro Sicilia

Item # 41606 750mL

Though we have it marked as a digestif, this lighter style Sicilian amaro will work equally well as a refreshing aperitif. Created by two cousins who sought to revive a native variety of mint known as Nepitella, the natural wild mint they use is complemented by lemon peels from Siracusa and other local aromatic herbs for a flavorful but nuanced style of this liqueur.

Staff Pick Notes

Hailing from Syracuse, the historically celebrated and often visited town in the southeast of Sicily. Nepèta is crafted from the freshest nepitella (wild mint) organically grown in the the Iblean plateaus. The leaves are infused in a neutral spirit and joined with a separate infusion of botanicals and PGI Syracuse lemons. This process gives Nepèta the perfect balance of experience between mint, lemon and a botanical blend, which includes bitter orange, gentian, artemisia, and wild bitter herbs. The subtle but distinct mint notes give way to the freshest lemon I have ever tasted in a digestif. With it’s soft and subtle herbaceous sip, Nepèta is a tantalizing addition to any home bar. While I love this Amaro neat after a meal or on the rocks as a nightcap, Nepèta would be a welcome addition to classic cocktails such as the Paper Plane.
