4* / Highly Recommended
March 2014

At the heart of most French aperitif bitters, Italian Amari and classic cocktail bitters, one almost always finds gentian root. Our Amère Sauvage uses only French yellow gentian root to make our liqueur.Try combining equal parts gin, Lillet Blanc and Amère Sauvage to create a White Negroni or just enjoy it on the rocks or with club soda.
