We are delighted to introduce our new line of house-made and hand-crafted Amari in a very limited quantity. A labor of love, this project grew out of our backgrounds as artists and our desire to create something delicious, beautiful and inspiring to enjoy as a counterpoint to the difficult time we are living through. Poised at the intersection of art and alchemy, we liken these Amari to resilience in a bottle. Each complex elixir is crafted in homage to the piece of music for which it is named
A homage to Akhnaten, the great revolutionary Egyptian pharaoh as well as the eponymous opera by Phillip Glass. The unique recipe incorporates over 40 spices, bark, roots and dried fruits and nuts, partly inspired by the ancient Egyptians’ selection of botanicals and spices used during the mummification process. With notes of cumin, coriander, peppermint, cloves, basil, chamomile, cedar, eucalyptus and myrrh, among others.
The Akhnaten Amaro is meant to be enjoyed neat or on ice.
Inspired by Johann Sebastian Bach’s Partita No. 2 in D minor for solo violin. By combining art and mixology, each distinctive recipe translates the emotional fabric of the Partita’s five movements into complex flavors, resulting in five individual Amari.
A vigorous Amaro with notes of chamomile, eucalyptus, water mint, hibiscus, resin and saffron.
Whimsical and layered with notes of dill, eucalyptus, cumin, hibiscus, black cardamom, allspice, mastiha and saffron.
Restrained and somber with notes of bitter orange, rhubarb, oregano, coriander, cardamom and patchouli.
Enigmatic, intricate and intense with notes of cinnamon, rosehip, turmeric, ginger, rosemary, vanilla and lemon balm.
Arcane, lyrical, smoky and resinous with notes of black cardamom, bitter orange, tarragon rhubarb, chamomile, bay leaves, patchouli, cloves, sassafras, wild fennel and cedar.
*25% of all proceeds from Akhnaten Amaro sales will go to The Harlem School of the Arts at The Herb Alpert Center, the cultural arts center of interdisciplinary excellence.
