Description of tasting:

Amaro is for lovers this month at USQ! Few spirits unify the sweet and savory aspects of the taste experience like amaro. Celebrate the resurgence of this noble category as cutting edge importer Haus Alpenz offers up two selections from their portfolio for winter sipping.  Each Friday in February will feature Zucca Rabarbaro Amaro and Cardamaro for passers-by to sample neat. Zucca is a rhubarb amaro hailing from Milanese bars and cafés showing off rich and tart aromas and flavors. This is a fantastic digestivo and plays well with brown spirits and gin alike. For more of an apertivo appeal, check out Asti's Cardamaro. Based in the ancient infusion of Cardoon and Blessed Thistle, Cardamaro is all finesse with soft spice and savory fruit character perfect for starting the evening!

Admission to this tasting is FREE, and reservations are not required!
