bottle of Di Amore Amaretto sitting on a wooden table, in front of a mixed white and wooden background

Di Amore Amaretto

Di Amore Amaretto is produced by Barton Distilling Company – a Kentucky based spirits company owned by Sazerac. Although many retailers list “Italy” as Di Amore‘s country of origin, I could not find definitive evidence of where it was made. Funnily enough, Sazerac does not seem to be publicly associated with any Italian distilleries, nor does Barton 1792 Distillery seem to publicly claim the brand. This particular bottle of Amaretto Liqueur is produced using crushed essence of apricot. It is bottled at 42 proof.

This particular bottle of Maraschino liqueur is modeled after a Dalmatian liqueur called rosolio maraschino, which was made in convents and monasteries as early as the medieval period. Luxardo Maraschino is made from marasca […]

Bottle of Mr Stacks Pumpkin Spice Liqueur sitting on a wooden table, in front of a mixed white and wooden background

Mr Stacks Pumpkin Spice Liqueur

I’m not ashamed to admit it – I’m a Chicana gal who loves pumpkin spice. Pumpkin was always my favorite pie, and I will not apologize. It’s the best spice combo ever invented. That’s why every year, I try to review at least 1 tasty-looking pumpkin spice flavored spirit. This year, I went for something a little more ubiquitous that I honestly can’t believe I haven’t tried yet: Mr Stacks Pumpkin Spice Liqueur. Mr Stacks Pumpkin Spice Liqueur is produced by Mister Stacks Specialties Company – a Minnesota based spirits company that produces a wide variety of liqueurs and schnapps products. Unfortunately, production information for their […]
