Autonomy Australian Amaro 500ml
A showcase of native Australian botanicals at their finest. Handcrafted in batches of 100 bottles, our native Australian Amaro is characterised by a forward sweetness followed by a deep, earthy bitterness with hints of citrus and native gums. The Autonomy Amaro is macerated in 10 native Australian botanicals including cinnamon myrtle, lemon myrtle, mountain pepper-berry and lemon scented gum. A complex and bittersweet medium-bodied amaro.
Great in an All Australian Negroni or paired with the Tasmanian Tonic Co. Pepperberry Tonic.
Autonomy's story differs slightly from other distilleries. As they started learning about the process of spirit production, Autonomy's distillers were astounded by the amount of resources required to produce a bottle of liquor. They felt that so many aspects of the process were 'environmentally disproportionate'. They saw the huge quantity of grain and water being used in the fermentation process; the energy required during distillation; the importation of single-use glass bottles and exotic botanicals from all corners of the earth.
In using native species of Australian botanicals, Autonomy Distillery supports local businesses, local farmers and reduces food miles and associated fossil fuels. Rather than peeling whole fruits, Autonomy collects left over citrus peels from Market Juice Co once they're done squeezing fresh juice.
