Amaro Bonaventura Erbe & Spezie

Distillery Bonaventura Maschio

“Erbe e spezie” is the Amaro that stems from Prime Uve Nere, our most meditative grape distillate with its spicy and toasty notes, a result of aging in wood. And spices are indeed the scents that characterize “Amaro Bonaventura” Erbe e spezie the most.

 The very territory of which this Amaro is an expression, the region of Venice, has been a crossroad of cultures, of eastern merchants and their opulence, of scents and flavors pouring in from all over the world.

The spicy side of its complex structure is firmly backed by cinnamon, vanilla and tonka beans. The bitter side counts gentian, cinchona, clary sage and bitter orange; fennel and caraway, known as Persian cumin, add a delicate balsamic touch.


Botanical extractions are separately accomplished through different techniques like long infusions and distillation.
