House of Angostura Announces Amaro di Angostura
Known for its bitters and rum-making heritage, the House of Angostura - with the only rum distillery in Trinidad today - marks its 190th anniversary with the U.S. arrival of Amaro di Angostura. Unveiled at Tales of the Cocktail, the world's premier cocktail festival held annually in New Orleans, this is the first time in the company's history to enter an entirely new category of spirits. Amaro di Angostura will be available nationwide in Fall 2014.
The taste of Amaro di Angostura is derived from the process used in creating the House of Angostura's aromatic bitters. The House yeast strain, cultivated by Angostura since the 1930's in Trinidad, combined with the addition of other spices and neutral alcohol from its distillery, result in a classic liqueur with a new-world dimension. Like Angostura aromatic bitters, the Amaro di Angostura recipe is a secret.
It is bottled at 35% ABV.
Amaro di Angostura is imported by the International Beverage Company www.interbevusa.com.
