Roasted Almond Amaretto
“We almost forgot that original amaretto was made out of almonds. Here the reinterpretation is just shockingly beautiful…” – Whisky Magazine
Don’t expect the sticky and heavy taste of old-school amaretto, this is a fresh new generation made entirely in Puglia, Italy.
Adriatico Amaretto contains half the sugar of classic amaretto and is crafted using almonds that are picked by hand and carefully roasted for hours, plus vanilla, cinnamon, cocoa, coffee and a pinch of salt from Margherita di Savoia on the Adriatic Sea. We will probably never go back to the original after tasting this golden amber elixir. Toasted nuts, sweet almond butter, homemade marzipan, honeycomb toffee, spiced coffee and that delicate hint of cherries (geeky side note: one of the major compounds that make cherries taste the way they do is benzaldehyde, which is an almond-like flavour). This artisan amaretto is drier and more sophisticated than the mass-produced standards on the market. The provenance, roasting and that pinch of salt are gourmet touches that make it the bartender’s choice in all manner of cocktails. We’ll certainly be indulging in an Amaretto Sour or two over the festive season, but also consider substituting Adriatico Amaretto for the vermouth in your Negroni, or mixing it with either Cognac (French Connection) or Scotch (Godfather).
For Jean-Robert Bellanger, the dream to create Adriatico began when his Italian mother prepared his favourite dessert, tiramisu, with a dash of amaretto. So, he set out to create 100% natural ingredients amaretto that would showcase the Filippo Cea almonds grown in Puglia. The bottles pay homage to this beautiful area of Italy: the shape is based on the geometry of the stunning Castel del Monte, the colour highlights are inspired by the crystal blue waters of the Adriatic Sea and the golden sunshine that bathes the surrounding countryside, and there’s even a trullo on there.
