Scuola Di Volo: Amaro

Join us on April 24th at 7:30pm for an introductory one-hour virtual guided tasting with Amaro! Hosted by one of our very own Juliana Wolkowski, this educational tasting will feature five amari from Italy that are distinctive; each with a sense of regionality, tradition and innovation. 

Juliana has spent the last 12 years in Toronto’s hospitality scene. From late night snack bars to some of the world’s best bars - she has spent her career creating both accessible and educational platforms without losing the heart of hospitality and guest connections. Juliana will take us through a historical introduction to amaro - its process, proper storage, botanicals and so much more. Plus the tasting will kick off with a Cynar Grapefruit Cocktail, so get your ice cubes ready! 

Tickets are $55.00 (plus HST & food item) and include:

  • One hour access to virtual guided tasting with Juliana Wolkowski
  • Five 1.5oz samples of Amaro from Italy (tasting notes included!)
  • 2oz freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
  • Food pairing options include: chips for $5.00 or antipasto mix for $10.00 (guindillas, cheese, cured meat, olives, caperberries). 

For those that are interested only in the educational component of this virtual seminar, tickets will be offered at $15.00 with no samples included.

---------------------

The Lineup:

  • Cynar, Italy - An Italian bitter apéritif of the amaro variety. It is made from 13 herbs and plants, predominant amongst which is the artichoke, from which the drink derives its name.
  • Punt a Mes, Italy - Is it a vermouth? Is it an amaro? It’s actually a well balanced blend of the two. All ingredients are well kept secrets - but we can certainly make our assumptions about this lush bartender’s best kept secret! Aromas of baking spice, stonefruit & fresh tobacco.
  • Nepeta, Italy - This Italian amaro is made primarily from Nepitella, a mint varietal that grows in the Italian countryside. It also includes, lemon, gentian and other herbs grown wildly. At the bottom of the palate, after the first sip, there is a slight bitterness.
  • Doragrossa Amaro di Torino, Italy - This delicate alpine-style Amaro is invigorating and digestive. It expresses the powerful character of rhubarb and gentian, the balsamic notes of juniper enriched by many other herbs including tansy, liquorice, and vanilla.
  • Sangallo Amaro Camatti, Italy - A Genovese specialty, first made by pharmacist Umberto Briganti in 1923 and named after his wife. Bitters were originally prepared by the local pharmacist and prescribed for their healing properties.
  • -$-15.00
