Amaro Liqueur | Averna
Averna is a popular Italian bitter liqueur (classified as an amaro) that is still produced from the original 1868 recipe of natural ingredients. The herbs, roots, and citrus are allowed to infuse in the base liquor for two extended periods of time. What exactly is included in this herbal blend is a secret for the most part. Pomegranate and the essential oils of bitter lemons and oranges are included in the list. The infused spirit is blended with water and sugar to reach its bottling strength of 29 percent ABV, 58 proof. That's a little lower than a previous version, which was 64 proof.
