Distilleria Caffo’s signature product is Vecchio Amaro del Capo, an herbal liqueur from Calabria, the result of an ancient Calabrian recipe later reworked and improved by the experience gained by four generations of the Caffo family. Vecchio Amaro del Capo encapsulates the active ingredients of many beneficial herbs, flowers, fruits and roots from the generous land of Calabria, infused in fine alcohol to aid digestion and give a pleasant feeling of well-being. Among the 29 medicinal herbs that make up the infusion are some that are very common in Calabria, such as bitter orange, sweet orange, licorice, mandarin, chamomile, and juniper, for their tonic-digestive properties. Its gentle and aromatic taste is well suited to even the most delicate palates, unaccustomed to the “Amarissimi,” and let us remember that as the best Calabrian tradition dictates, it should be drunk iced (at -20° C. in the characteristic Capo glasses) to enhance the characteristics of the particular herbs that make it up. Vecchio Amaro del Capo, today is among the most popular and best-selling bitters in Italy and boasts the distinction of being the first bitter to be offered iced from the slogans launched by the company back in the 1970s when consumption was mainly summer and was distributed only in Calabria. In 2010, Vecchio Amaro del Capo was the only Italian amaro awarded a gold medal at the world competition in Brussels.
