Amaro Camatti is a Genovese specialty, first made by Umberto Briganti in 1923 and named after his wife. Bitters were originally prepared by the local pharmacist and prescribed for their healing properties. After disappearing from the market for several decades, Stefano and Camilla acquired the rights to produce Amaro Camatti, remaining faithful to the original (and secret) recipe of Umberto. It has a unique taste of China and Gentian with menthol and amaretto. A taste of Genovese history.
Alpicella’s history goes back even further, first created by a monk in 1630 as an offering to passing pilgrims in Velva, high in the mountains above Monterosso. The ancient recipe includes thirty two mountain herbs and can be enjoyed on ice or with a splash of soda.
