Amore Amaro

Amaro botanicals

A view of the amaro garden.

The garden

With few execptions, the garden takes its inspiration from botanicals commonly used in the Italian digestif amaro, as well as the plants grown in “physic gardens” of medieval monastaries.

The forage

In times past it was believed that wild plants were far more effective actors than their domesticated counterparts. While the impetus for this project was to create a cultivated garden, some of the ingredients that will make their way into the final recipes will be responsibly sourced from the wild.
