About Stambecco Maraschino Cherry Amaro
Carlo Vergnano was working for Seagram Italia at the beginning of the 90s. In 1992, he bought the Moncalieri production plant from Seagram, setting the foundations for Torino Distillati ― a family-owned spirits business. The plant was built in Moncalieri in 1906 by a reputable family from Piedmont, Fratelli Ferrero di Riccardo, before coming under Seagram in the 60s. Today, the company is run by Carlo Vergnano, along with his wife Piera and daughter Rita, who is set to continue the tradition. The company prides itself on professionalism, transparency, and the quality of their raw ingredients.
Stambecco is the Italian word for an Alpine ibex or wild mountain goat that is native to the European Alps. The Maraschino Cherry Amaro is a liqueur that is distilled in the Piedmont region in northwest Italy at Torino Distillati. Crafted under the watchful eye of Master Distiller Beppe Ronco, it's infused with Maraschino cherries as well as 30 different botanicals: sweet and bitter oranges, coriander, marjoram, oregano, artemisia blend, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. Balanced, fruity, and smooth, the 70-proof liqueur is delicious on its own, on the rocks, or in various cocktails.
