24% ABV / 700mL
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.
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 plenty of sweetness (although short of 'visit the dentist' type of sweet).
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.
We're thrilled to have won the following awards for the Naked Amaretto:
- Silver, 2019 Tasting Australia Spirit Awards
- Bronze, 2019 San Francisco World Spirits Competition
- Bronze, 2019 Australian Distilled Spirits Awards
All of our liqueurs, including Naked Amaretto, are bottled predominantly in recycled glass spirit bottles. 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.
