Amaro Liqueur

While amaro can have an intimidating reputation of being too bitter, Jon Arroyo set out on a journey to make an approachable amaro spirit that everyone can enjoy. Our Founding Spirits Arroyo’s “Never Bitter” Amaro can only be described as delicious and “never bitter,” as the name suggests. Arroyo fell in love with digestifs and aperitifs throughout his travels to South America and Europe, and made it his mission to bring the magic of the before and after dinner drink home to the U.S.

Distilled and bottled at Founding Spirits in Washington, D.C., our amaro liqueur can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks, with a twist, or in a cocktail.

Our Founding Spirits Arroyo’s “Never Bitter” Amaro is GOLD, according to the American Distilling Institute (ADI) who gave it their Gold Medal for a Certified Craft Blended Spirit. It is also SILVER according to the highly competitive San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Our amaro also took home another ADI win in the prestigious Best of Certified Craft Blended Spirit category. Making it a four-time winner, our amaro won another SILVER award from the International Review of Spirits by Tastings, an affiliate of the Beverage Testing Institute.

Founding Spirits Arroyo’s “Never Bitter” Amaro makes a great gift for any spirit connoisseur and is available at fine retailers or for purchase online. We invite you to come in and book a Tour & Tasting at our DC distillery to experience for yourself what we think is the best amaro handcrafted in the metro area. Our small-batch spirits are also available wholesale.
