Proof66 Notes

Averna Amaro bitters liqueur is an Italian product promising a drink that is "extremely pleasant for every moment of the day." They suggest drinking neat or frozen. The name comes from the Italian amari for "bitter" and is often used as a digestif after meals.

Averna was founded by Salvatore Averna who is said to have gained the secret recipe of mixing an herbal elixir from an order of friars in 1859 leading to the founding of the company in 1868.

Described as "the gateway drug of amaros" because of its sweetness. "it opens with a dark amber or espresso color and emits intense aromas of exotic spice, wood, maple syrup, cinnamon and dried orange peel. The mouthfeel is velvety, creamy and dense." That's pretty much correct, except maybe for the maple syrup part. There really is no bitter to this bitters. It is extremely enjoyable, very cold. Keep a bottle in the freezer next to the green Chartreuse.
