White Possum Naked Amaretto
24% Alc. vol.
Where to Buy:
The first Australian-made Amaretto. A stripped down version of the classic Italian Amaretto with an Australian twist. It’s made with smashed Australian grown bitter almonds (a by-product of the apricot industry) that are cooked and infused in the spirit for weeks. This is where the big bold marzipan flavour comes from. The White Possum team then add a pinch of wild Strawberry Gum leaves, harvested from outback NSW, which adds an extra floral boost. Contains no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.
On the nose you’ll detect thick marzipan notes but also a smattering of floral and herbal aromas, thanks in part to the addition of Strawberry Gum. A quick swirl opens it up further.
On the palate you’ll be greeted with an explosion of marzipan flavour thanks to a generous infusion of bitter almonds. It’s thick, decadent and syrup-like with plenty of sweetness (although short of ‘visit the dentist’ type of sweet).
On the finish, you’ll experience a long drawn-out ending with brown sugar playing a key role in the length. Its flavours will dance around on your tongue like a house party into the wee hours of the morning.
