Amaro Amorino is named for my grandfather. Raised in a hillside village in Abruzzo, he went on to open a neighborhood liquor store in the heart of Rome. It was in that store that I learned about the way spirits and wine play a role in daily Italian community.
"Amorino" means "little love" in Italian. As we all know, love can often be bittersweet. So I pay homage to that wod and to my "Nonno Morino" with this bittersweet liqueur.
