Description

24% ABV / 500mL

We've been big fans of Amaretto and its marzipan flavour since as far back as we can remember. But it was a shame not to be able to buy a locally made one, so we decided to take matters into our own hands and make the first Australian-made Amaretto.

This is a stripped down version of the classic Italian Amaretto, but with an Australian twist. To make it, we smash apart Australian grown bitter almonds (a by-product of the apricot industry), cook and infuse them in spirit for weeks. This is where we get that big bold marzipan flavour that we love so much. Then we add a pinch of wild Strawberry Gum leaves, harvested from outback NSW, which adds an extra floral boost.

Contains precisely 0.0% artificial colours, flavours and preservatives. Vegan friendly (we don't use any animal products nor processes throughout). Gluten free.

Tasting notes

On the nose you'll detect thick marzipan notes but also a smattering of floral and herbal aromas, thanks in part to the addition of Strawberry Gum. A quick swirl opens it up further.

On the palate you'll be greeted with an explosion of marzipan flavour thanks to a generous infusion of bitter almonds. It's thick, decadent and syrup-like with a healthy dose of sweetness.

On the finish, you'll experience a long drawn-out ending with brown sugar playing a key role in the length. Its flavours will dance around on your tongue like a house party into the wee hours of the morning.

Recycled bottles

All of our liqueurs, including Naked Amaretto, are bottled in recycled glass spirit bottles where possible. Between our lovely network of bars who help collect empty spirit bottles for us and the empty bottles that get spat out of our own tasting flight production line, we've managed to build up a locally sustainable supply of bottles. These bottles are given a "rough massage" to strip the labels off, then a hardcore hot rinse and a final polish up before being revived with a new liqueur filled life.

Marzipan in a bottle!

I spent time living in Hamburg as a child and I developed a love for marzipan. Unfortunately, when I came back to Australia, I could not find marzipan that was quite the same. The Naked Ameretto is, hands down, the most delicious marzipan-like liquid that I have ever tasted. It lacks the chemical flavour that is often associated with overly processed marzipan. It is delicious and goes perfectly in many of my cocktails! I especially loved using the recipe guide on the White Possum website to create unique cocktails that I had never tried before. I would highly recommend this product.

This stuff is like all other brand's smoother older brother. No chemical taste and easy drinking. Love that it comes in recycled bottles. Love it all.

In love!

This Amaretto is soooooo goooood. I’m from America and my fave cocktail is Amaretto sours but I hadn’t had it in four years. I came across this online and it’s just so smooth and the perfect flavour. Also, the detail put into everything about this bottle is incredible. The wax seal made me feel so fancy. Love love love! I’ll always be ordering my amaretto from you guys.
