At Amaro Camatti we do our best to keep a traditional manufacturing process. Once the key ingredients have been carefully selected, they are infused and macerated. Such process was developed according to the characteristics of the herbs and plants used, as well as to the final product we aim at obtaining. The infusion is then decanted in barrels or stainless steel kegs, and strained in order to remove any impurities. A water and sugar syrup is then added, and Amaro Camatti is ready to be bottled end enjoyed. ready for the final consumer, all that remains is to bottle it.
The selection of base ingredients, such as herbs and plants, plays a key role. That’s why we personally ensure that they meet our requirements in terms of quality, origin, and preservation. The production process is supervised and monitored every step of the way, in order to ensure the compliance of the final product with the strict taste and flavour standards that make Amaro Camatti so unique.
