Created by Biggar & Leith who are also behind the Hotel Starlino range of Vermouth and Aperitivos, Stambecco Amaro is a bittersweet liqueur flavoured with maraschino cherries along with 30 other more traditional amaro botanicals.
Stambecco Amaro takes its name from the Italian for word for the Ibex or long-horned mountain goat which roams the Italian Alps near the distillery. Hence, the word monte, meaning mountain is featured on the label along with a silhouette of a long-horned goat. The heavy glass decanter-style bottle is heavily debossed with raised bumps and is topped by a cherry-red stopper.
Review and Tasting
Sampled before 1st May 2011
Clear, golden amber.
Battenburg cake with cherryade and light baking spice.
Bittersweet with undulating waves of sweet cherry, marzipan and rooty bitterness.
The finish is drier than the palate with long lingering cola cube flavour and rooty bitterness.
Somewhat reminiscent of a bitter amaretto.
