Amaro Montenegro is an intriguing spirit for cocktail enthusiasts looking for new flavor experiences. With a taste that is both bitter and slightly sweet, the blend of 40 herbs offers a curiously complex flavor with tremendous versatility. What distinguishes Amaro Montenegro from other Amari and herbal liqueurs is its balanced bitter-sweet flavor, smooth texture and milder proof – making it the difference in the drink without overpowering other ingredients.
