Award: Awarded our Industry’s highest honor–BEST IN CLASS by the American Craft Spirits Association.
When the Pennsylvania Dutch came to the United States from Europe they brought a tradition of growing saffron, a popular spice often associated with Mediterranean cooking. This rich tradition is featured prominently in our very Wigle take on Amaro, a popular Italian herbal liqueur. To make Saffron Amaro, we distill a mash of regionally grown apples into apple brandy and infuse the spirit with a complex blend of 12 botanicals including saffron, orange peel, and chamomile. This honey, citrus, and floral forward amaro is perfect sipped neat or in a cocktail like a classic Spritz or Negroni. Check out our suggestions below. Celebrate la dolce vita Keystone State style!

“It’s delicious. Every sip makes me happy.
Wigle Saffron Amaro’s only flaw is that it’s not available in all 50 states, and that I have to remember to look for it when I’m passing through Pennsylvania, or have a friend passing through, or have a friend of a friend who might be going to Pittsburgh and could get me a bottle.”
