At A Glance
Founder Nonno Guelfo was a profound “Made in Italy” connoisseur and a great beverage expert. He had flawless calligraphy, could never resist a boules match, and was able to fix any bicycle. Visitors usually found him in the garden on sunny days – or in an armchair, tired, after dark, sipping satisfied his treasured Amaro Guelfo.
Amaro Guelfo is intensely citrusy and spicy, and uniquely blended with 3-year-old Italian brandy, which adds to the Amaro’s complexity and lends a pleasant, silky finish.
