AMARO '900


Valdagno, Vi

The origins of Liquoreria Carlotto are due to the Potepan family, of Hungarian origin, arrived at the Habsburg Court of Francis I of Austria around 1820, thanks to their great pastry mastery. Sent to the Habsburg region of Lombardy-Veneto, Anton Potepan matured the will to transplant the art of confectionery and middle-European liqueur and, together with his son Giovanni Onesto, he began to produce his famous Bulgarian Rose Rosolio, which immediately found the extraordinary consent of Francesco Giuseppe Imperatore of Austria and King of Hungary who gave a precious crystal bottle to the King of Italy Vittorio Emanuele II. Married to Girolamo Carlotto, owner of a liqueur factory, Teresa, daughter of Gio Onesto, gave her husband as a dowry the recipes of his family that today are produced with the same passion and care by Carlotto. During the second half of the seventies, Carlotto Liquorificio Artigianale, of more than 100 years of tradition, found itself in serious difficulty. Two possibilities presented themselves to Giuseppe Carlotto, an expert oenologist: to embrace the new policies of large-scale retail trade by sharply lowering the quality of its products or seeing its activity go out a little at a time. Giuseppe decided to take the risk by continuing to follow a production of artisan quality well aware of the great difficulties he would have encountered. In 1980, however, a fact occurred that would have laid the strong foundations for the relaunch of the Liquorificio: the meeting with Gualtiero Marchesi. The greatest exponent of the nouvelle cuisine, in love with the Carlotto's liqueur art, commissioned him to produce various liqueurs, including an Amaro! So, thanks also to the Maestro Marchesi, today the Carlotto can continue their excellent production by proposing, among the many specialties, theAmaro '900, one of the precious gems of the Carlotto production. An Amaro of Central European tradition that dates back to the early 1900s and is produced from skilful infusions of 39 aromatic botanicals, among which prevails the Sage that gives theAmaro '900 a unique aroma.
