WHAT IS IT?
It's an Amaro - a type of bitter/herbal aperitif that have been popular for more than a century - famous for it's use in the Negroni or Spritz. Utilising the Australian native botanical, the riberry where the botanical's cranberry-tartness, hints of clove and bark-like bitterness make it well-suited for an Australian aperitif. Riberries aren't the only stars in this beverage - alongside it there is Davidson Plum, Finger Limes, Lemon Myrtle, Saltbush, Rivermint, Peppermint and Strawberry Gum Leaves. Made for the all Australian negroni cocktail.
Alcoholic strength: 26% ABV
WHO'S BEHIND IT?
The masterminds behind Applewood Distillery in South Australia are Brendan and Laura Carter. Originally (and still) a winemaker, Brendan studied at S.C.Pannell Wines under Stephen Pannell, a celebrated winemaker from Southern Australia. Brendan was Brendan was responsible for Adelaide Hills Syrah, an aromatic wine, that won the prestigious Jimmy Watson trophy in 2014. Laura herself is no stranger to the wine industry, having worked at Henschke, a 148-year old winery in Australia. The distillery constantly experiments with its distillations whether it is smoking barley grain with applewood or making a salt and sake gin.

Please note we are currently experiencing delays with deliveries across our entire shipping network. This is largely due to reduced domestic flights, social distancing measures being put in place by our shipping partners which increase processing and sorting time, and an increase in the volume of parcels they have to process. The estimates below are therefore not accurate but we are unable to give a more definitive guide as to shipping times. If you do however, require the parcel urgently, please get in touch and we will do what we can to accommodate your request. Thanks for your patience and thank you more particularly for staying home!
