This spirit is literally the ‘Taste of Australia’.

It’s an Amaro – a type of bitter/herbal aperitif that have been popular for more than a century – famous for it’s use in the Negroni or Spritz. We like to take an Australian-spin on things – and dry aperitifs seem to epitomise a renaissance in contemporary Australian drinking.

It just so happens that seemingly – 90% of all native Australian botanicals are also intensely bitter. Probably something to do with the harshness of our climate – and one native ingredient stood head-and-shoulders above the rest when it came to Økar – Riberries. Otherwise known as Lilly Pilly.

The Riberry’s cranberry-tartness, hints of clove and bark-like bitterness make it well-suited for an Australian aperitif. Riberries aren’t the only stars in this beverage – alongside we see Davidson Plum, Finger Limes, Lemon Myrtle, Saltbush, Rivermint, Peppermint and Strawberry Gum Leaves (just to name a few!).

Apart from crafting fine Whisky and Gin, Applewood Distillery, located in South Australia's Adelaide Hills also dabble in experimental small-batch distilling - be it diluting Gin with Saké, torpedoing it with Lavender, smoking barley grain with Applewood or re-inventing refreshing 'old world' classics like his local take on Amaro. This endless originality, finding its inspiration for intrants from Australian Flora and….Fauna is flabbergasting and thanks to the ability of the master distiller, the results are always brilliant.
