In 1862, the cod trade led Italy to establish its consulate in Gaspé, in what is now the Lebouthillier House, located in the cradle of Canada in the middle of Gaspe. Nowadays, thanks to its three crystalline rivers (Dartmouth, York and St-Jean), Gaspé has become a salmon fishing paradise. All along the Dartmouth River, we find the ingredients that flavour our amaretto (lichen and raspberries) combining Italian heritage and gaspesian terroir.
Dartmouth is like no other Amaretto that you've tasted. It is very different in many ways but the most notable ways is it dinstinct balance between what is sweet and what is earthy.
We hand pick lichen and raspberry leaves, dry them, then we soak in the alocohol for 4 weeks. After this is complete we drain the alcohol, put add vanilla and other nut flavours then dilute it with spring water.
The flavour profile is very complex and rich.
