THE DISPENSARY RELEASE
FRESH ORANGE AMARO
Inspired by classic Italian bitters recipes but with a local Melbourne twist, Fresh Orange Amaro was blended to be consumed on hot summer days as a refreshing spritz, signalling that the day is fading but the night is still ahead. A deep citrus nose softened with floral notes and fresh fruit sweetness, Fresh Orange Amaro embodies Australian summertime.
For a boozier cocktail, pair it with The Gospel Straight Rye Whiskey in a Boulevardier, or add extra depth and complexity to a Negroni. Or simply serve tall with soda water and an orange wedge.
The Dispensary is a series of in-house flavour experiments, crafted by our distilling team for themselves and their weekend cocktails. The series is complimentary to or built from our 100% Australian Rye Whiskey. Fresh Orange Amaro is the first release under The Dispensary. More to come.
It is widely believed that whiskey was first distilled for medicinal use by monks and apothecaries in Scotland and Ireland. The distillation of whiskey evolved as it moved from monastic to secular, as it did with the path of migration over hundreds of years. Early Scotch-Irish settlers in the USA used rye to make whiskey because barley didn’t adapt to the North American climate. These conditions are also true for the dry climate of Australia, where we set out to reimagine this original American spirit using 100% Australian rye.
