Bepi Tosolini Amaretto Veneziano

Amaretto is an incredibly popular Italian liqueur and a classic cocktail ingredient. Originating from Saronno, Italy, its first iterations were based on bitter almonds. Modern variants use many different stones from fruits including apricots, peaches, and almonds to achieve the liqueur's signature nuttiness. It's sweet with a mild bitterness — its name translates to "a little bitter". Popular as a standalone drink, the liqueur has become an invaluable part of countless cocktails and has many culinary applications as well, as it goes well with ice cream, coffee, desserts, and savory dishes.

Saliza Amaretto Veneziano is made traditionally using crushed almonds, unlike some lesser liqueurs. The almonds are steeped in alcohol and a dash of brandy is added at the end to add complexity. This liqueur pays tribute to amaretto's Venetian origins with its name and design on the bottle, which features a masked female face. Bottled at 56 proof, it has intense toasted almond notes and a pleasant zestiness that balances its sweetness.
