The Southern Amaro, made with local botanicals, is a product that is completely unique to Charleston, SC. When conceptualizing their bitter liqueur, Scott and Anne wanted the flavor profile to be steeped in the Southern tradition of sweet tea. Botanicals include Charleston black tea, fresh Dancy tangerine, locally foraged mint, and Yaupon Holly (North America's only naturally caffeinated plant).
