High Wire Distilling
Southern Amaro Liqueur $40.00
Straight out of Charleston, High Wire has produced some explorational spirits. This amaro, for instance, follows the Italian tradition of bitter and herbaceous liqueur, and yet managed to smell like southern tea. Combining local ingredients is what did the trick apparently, and the combination of tangerine, black tea, and mint evoke nostalgic memories of southern patios and my grandmother's drawl. We highly suggest making a "Southern Americano" with this liqueur: equal parts Southern Amaro and sweet vermouth, topped with a touch of soda.
