A note on L’Aperitivo Nonino—it’s a newer product, distinct from their Amaro. It’s a citrus-forward, very lightly bitter aperitivo at 21% ABV.

Used Fords Officers' Reserve

Used Fords Officers' Reserve gin, as I thought it might slot nicely between the honeyed vanilla & oak notes of Nonino and Cocchi's spiced fruit and citrus. Drink did not disappoint! Well balanced acid and bitterness; citrus, anise, and a surprisingly vibrant rose on the nose; dried apricot, candied orange, oak, baking spices to taste.
