Saliza Amaretto Veneziano Bepi Tosolini
In Stock - 3 available
In a nutshell:
A rich, intensely nutty and not overly sweet Amaretto made by Bepi Toslini in northeast Italy.
While Amaretto is described is often described as an almond liqueur many versions are made using apricot kernels, or peach stones. However this superior example, made by master distiller Bepi Tosolini, is a cut above most and uses real crush almonds that are macerated and re-distilled with grape spirit. It's got beautiful aromas of freshly ground almonds together with a touch of toffee and a complex palate and restrained sweetness at the long, lingering finish. A properly serious Amaretto which is delicious served over ice as an after dinner liqueur.
Suitable for Vegans
The history of the Bepi Tosolini Distillery began in 1943, when Friulian Bepi Tosolini, born in 1918, a passionate connoisseur of his land and his customs, a strong supporter of his region and its products, decided to create a different grappa. Transforming a simple, humble and very often rustic and rough distillate in a product intended for a refined and demanding public. In the 1940s, believing that grappa, a poor product of the Friulian peasant tradition, could achieve popularity on a wider stage. Bepi Tosolini has invested in this dream, in the 1950s building a new distillery in Udine and joined it the largest grappa cellar in Italy.
