Americano Blanc is an amaro crafted from a brandy base using vidal blanc wine made locally by the good folks at Travessia Winery in New Bedford. We add amaro’s characteristic bitterness by macerating the brandy with botanicals before proofing down to 36 proof using vidal blanc wine.
The flavor profile of the spirit was developed to deliver a sense of the deep forests of New England. Wormwood’s characteristic bitterness towers like the trees, rising above an understory of bright floral notes and gentle sweetness from chamomile, bitter orange, and star anise. Earthy flavors from angelica and gentian root evoke the fertile soil from which it all grows.
In tasting terms, our Americano Blanc leads with dry white wine and floral notes which are supplemented by a crisp citric acidity and floral sweetness as the spirit crosses the palate and a refreshing bitterness on the finish. Straddling between vermouth and amaro, Americano Blanc is versatile enough to be sipped as a digestif or palate cleanser, a stand-in for dry vermouth in cocktails, or in cocktails featuring savory botanical flavors.
