Meet Amaro Montenegro

Meet Amaro Montenegro

Enjoy a spirited evening featuring the amari of Montenegro on Thursday, March 9, from 6 to 8 p.m.Representatives of the Italian distillery will join us at BAITA to chat about production of their small-batch amari, offer a specialty cocktail at a special price, and toast the New York City skyline.

Amaro Montenegro’s tale began more than 130 years ago with a rather unusual twist. Stanislao Cobianchi was living in Bologna, destined for an ecclesial career; one day, he went against his parents’ wishes and left home in the spirit of adventure. His journey took him to the Balkans, where he experienced a vibrant melting pot of cultures and ideas. He returned to his hometown filled with inspiration, opening a distillery and pioneering an amaro that perfectly balances bitter and sweet flavors. Making a grand gesture, Stanislao dedicated the name to Princess Elena of Montenegro. The distinctive bottle soon appeared in bars, cafes and homes across Italy and remains an iconic drink today.

No need to register for this event; seating at the bar is first come, first served. Learn more about "Meet the Distillery," our rooftop series dedicated to small-scale local and Italian distilleries, here!
