J. Rieger Caffe Amaro
J. Rieger Caffe Amaro...$26.99 / 750ml
The newest addition to the Rieger family is Caffe Amaro. Caffe Amaro is a bittersweet coffee liqueur and should be a staple in your home bar come winter time. With the nation’s obsession of coffee; cocktails made with coffee or some sort of coffee liqueur has become very popular over the past few years and Rieger Caffee Amaro is sure to up any cocktail. Rieger worked closely with another local company in Thou Mayest Coffee Roasters to find the perfect coffee to match the Amaro that wasn’t too sweet or too bitter. This all was then aged for a little time in once used Rieger Whiskey Barrels finished with some slightly sweet cane syrup. The result is an Amaro with notes of vanilla, spice, with a hint of bitter orange. Really good just by itself but also works well in Irish coffee, White Russian and makes an interesting drink with some tonic.
