Cocchi “Dopo Teatro” Vermouth Amaro
The name ‘Dopo Teatro’ refers to the late-evening, “after theater” service at restaurants and cafes in Torino, a gathering time for a sip of something bittersweet and maybe a small bite to eat. This “vermouth amaro” (vermouth with additional bitter elements) starts with the Moscato-based Cocchi Storico Vermouth di Torino, to which winemaker Giulio Bava adds robust Nebbiolo wine, local gentian, rhubarb root, chiretta and quinine. The result is a robust amaro that retains the refreshing acidity of the original vermouth. Ideal for cask strength or peated whiskeys as well as mezcal or gin, or pairing with spicy salami or intense chocolate preparations. Full details
Rothman & Winter Orchard Cherry Liqueur
In the realm of cherries, the sour Weichsel varieties found in and around Austria stand out for their vivid flavors and fine balance of the sweet and tart. This liqueur combines juices from the seasonal harvest of Weichsel cherries of farms in Lower Austria with an eau-de-vie produced from the same fruit. By avoiding the use of spice or vanilla, Rothman & Winter Orchard Cherry provides a clear, bright cherry flavor to mixed drinks, sparkling wine, wheat beer, dark beer, espresso, or desserts.

Etter Kirsch AOP Zug Eau-de-Vie
The name Etter is synonymous with Swiss Kirsch, made by the same family since 1870. In this bottle is distilled more than 10 pounds of fresh mountain cherries exclusively of the region surrounding Zug. The brandies gently evolve for years in glass demijohns before bottling. Kirsch is famously enjoyed sipped neat after dinner, or as aperitif mixed with club soda. In cocktails it pairs magically with Génépy. In the kitchen, it's an essential ingredient in a traditional fondue. Full details
