STELLACELLO is an award winning British liqueur company that takes inspiration from Italian recipes steeped in tradition and family heritage. Founded by artisan alchemist Joe Stella, and established in East London’s Bethnal Green in 2012, the liqueurs have been created through persistent experimentation; combining herbs, fruits and spices to produce something truly unique.
Amaro London combines the beauty of the Italian bitter spirit category with the best quality locally sourced ingredients from London. The result is a beautifully fresh, spicy, and bitter elixir with an unmistakable citric twang. This and the rich and syrupy mouthfeel make this a show stopping after dinner sipper. Simply poured over ice it makes a digestif fit for a king.
Our suggested serve:
A cocktail inspired by the roots of the Stellacello Amaro – London Terroir combined with Italian Heritage. The ‘Americano’ was concieved as American revellers discovered the joys of Italian food and drink but found some things too bitter for their sensitive palates. This lead to the espresso being served long with hot water and the Negroni the same but with soda water ( and no gin! ).
The Londissimo takes this classic and pulls it into England’s capital. The Amaro London uses locally sourced ingredients to capture the essence of London. We have paired this with an English vermouth by Bolney, one of the amazing British wine producers we work with, which accentuates and supports the bitter and herbal flavours of the Amaro.
See the recipe below:
Fill a Collins glass to the top with ice
-pour over 40ml each of Amaro and Vermouth
-top with lemonade until half a fingers width from the top, gently put a spoon to the bottom of the glass and lift up mixing the liquid (once should do)
– Garnish with Half of a British strawberry
-Sip and enjoy
