Very Likable Liqueurs

Whether you need an after-dinner sipper or an obscure modifier to step up your home bartending, our staff has got you covered with this list of eight favorites.

Cio Ciaro Amaro $24.99

Cio Ciaro is a great place to start your amaro journey. It strikes the perfect balance between sweet and bitter, citrus and herbs. Enjoy on the rocks after a meal and see what all the fuss is about. – Josh Mizrahi, Sales Manager

Tremontis Mirto Liqueur $29.99

Mirto is a type of berry that looks like a blueberry but has a more brambly taste, approaching the spice of  juniper and rosemary. The berries work perfectly in this liqueur. It’s a wonderful bittersweet drink that can be enjoyed alone or used in cocktails as an alternative to vermouth. – Andrea Fraccari, Wines & Spirits Consultant

St. George Spiced Pear Liqueur $34.99

St. George Spirits is one of the finest craft distillers in the U.S., and with their Spiced Pear Liqueur the creative possibilities are endless. This is full of ripe juicy pears, cinnamon, and cloves. It’s delicious all on its own, but pairs up nicely with any number of other spirits like whiskey, rum, and vodka or even sparkling wine. One of my favorites is a riff on a sidecar with cognac, simple syrup, and lemon juice. – Amy Miller, Wines & Spirits Consultant

Ancho Reyes Verde Poblano Liqueur $36.99

This magical poblano pepper liqueur really shines when mixed with clear spirits, especially those in the agave family. Even though it is spicy on the palate, you can find some green apple, matcha, lime, chimichurri, mint, and avocado flavors as well. – Davit Kirtadze, Wines & Spirits Consultant

Nepéta Amaro Sicilia $39.96

A remarkably fresh and vibrant amaro made with Nepitella, a wild Sicilian mint. Notes of chamomile, spearmint, and citrus make this amaro a perfect choice for aperitif drinking or mixing in cocktails. – Matt Goodyear, Wines & Spirits Consultant

Tempus Fugit Crème De Banane Liqueur $39.99

If you want the world’s best banana liqueur, look no further. Banana Runts this is not! Naturally flavored with ripe bananas, this is destined for your next banana Mai-Tai! – Vince Grace, Wines & Spirits Consultant

Letherbee Fernet $41.96

Everything you want and love in a fernet: an invigorating mint and eucalyptus backbone, notes of birch and cola, and hints of black coffee, dark chocolate, and spices. A pleasure to enjoy on its own or Argentinean-style with cola over ice. Try adding a splash of it in place of bitters in your next Manhattan. – Marc Mousky, Wines & Spirits Consultant

Half-Bottle of Laurent Cazottes Organic Tomato Liqueur $69.99

A spirit so rare and spectacular you have to try it for yourself. Laurent Cazottes (an absolute madman of distilling) uses 72 varieties of heirloom tomatoes, all picked by hand, and distills them with a base of eau-de-vie made from Folle Noire grapes in this liqueur. It’s umami, sweet, and indescribable in the best possible way. – Jon Miner, Wines & Spirits Consultant
