Not only can this spirit be served neat, it’s fantastic in cocktails and can be used in dessert recipes!
This Amaro from Bepi Tosolini is a taste of Italy! Made from a blend of 15 different Mediterranean herbs and roots that have been macerated and infused, the Amaro is then refined in ash barrels stored in a Venice lagoon for several months. Finally, it’s blended with pure Alps water and MOST acquavite. With its excellent digestive properties, it’s a fantastic addition to a menu and an easy upsell.
This award-winning Scotch Whiskey is a classic expression that’s sure to delight. The unique bottle documents facts about the casks used in the aging process. Mossburn uses three different types of cask woods; Re-used American Whiskey, Oloroso Sherry Butts, and Heavy Char Heads. The result is a nose of clean, light sherry and oak with vanilla and heather.
Made using traditional values in Germany’s historic Black Forest region, Schladerer has been distilling fine fruit brandies and liqueurs since 1844. Edel-Kirsch is a blend of cherry brandy and cherry juice are sweetened to perfection with pure crystal sugar.

The smooth spirit is filtered through silver birch charcoal and has a hint of softness with a dry finish.
Perfect for enjoying year-round, but particularly fantastic in winter, Stroh Jagertee is an Austrian tradition!

Stroh Jagertee is a blended black tea liqueur with herbal flavors and the extraordinary spices of Stroh Rum.
