In 1875, the botanist Dottore Francesco Peloni developed in the mountain region Bormio, Lombardy the original recipe for the Amaro Braulio. The ingredients for the use of this unique Amaro are exclusively fresh herbs and spring water from the mountain region Valtellina. The herbs are dried at the fresh mountain air and then fermented with spring water and alcohol a month. The hand-made high-quality product gets, additionally, maturation for 2 years in oak barrels - the only Amaro in the word to do so
By popular demand, this legendary amaro from Italy is finally available stateside for the first time ever. Braulio is made in the true Alpine style from a venerated estate begun by Francesco Peloni over a century ago. Located in Valtellina, near the border with Switzerland, this amaro is made from a secret recipe of over 20 mountain herbs and botanicals, which are gathered and used to create this one-of-a-kind spirit. Foresty, herbaceous, and piney, with a floral character and a distinct menthol note. Intense concentration with a touch of medicinal spice that speaks to the original purposes of these ancient potions. Very refreshing, with a pungent bitterness.
