Forthave 'Mithradates VI' Vino Amaro
MITHRADATES VI is a vino amaro made with red wine from New York’s Finger
Lakes region and aromatized with 34 unique botanicals. The grapes (Frontenac),
harvested in 2021, were vinified and then fortified with various herbal extractions
before resting in used bourbon casks and steel tanks.
It is the second release of Forthave Spirits’ historical line, where ancient medicinal
recipes are reinterpreted as digestivos.
With notes of fig, cardomom, cedar, and mace, this vino amaro can be enjoyed many ways: neat; poured over ice with an orange twist; with a splash of club soda or tonic as refreshing spritz; or in place of red vermouth in many cocktails.
