There’s nothing like enjoying an Italian Amaro at the end of a night. Yet, if you’re about to take the plunge and dive into Dry July, finding a non-alcoholic version has been hard. 

Replicating all the notes of a traditional Italian herbal bitter liqueur, TheBitterNote is a complex, earthy, non-alcoholic herbal liquor with all the warm, gentle bitterness and smooth texture you expect from an Amaro. 


“TheBitterNote offers all of the flavour and sophistication of a traditional Italian amaro, making it easy to enjoy an after-dinner drink, guilt-free,” said John Dimitropoulos, Director of Only Bitters.

“TheBitterNote joins a growing stable of quality non-alcoholic spirits, meeting an increasing market demand in the non-alcoholic category.”

7 aromatic notes

TheBitterNote is crafted from an infusion of 36 botanicals, resulting in a complex and harmonious herbal bitter. Dark in colour with deep amber tones, the nose opens with aromas of bitter roots, fresh mint and rhubarb.

This non-alcoholic digestif is a vibrant mix of 7 aromatic notes:

  • bitter – wormwood,  gentian, cinchona
  • spicy – angelica root, cinnamon, juniper
  • fresh – mint, star anise
  • herbal – artichoke, aloe, chamomile
  • sweet – chamomile, sweet orange
  • balsamic – liquorice, angostura
  • citrus – bitter orange

The perfect digestive

On the palate, it is characterised by a smooth texture and a rich, distinctly bitter profile with complex notes of gentian, wormwood, artichoke and chamomile, finishing on lingering spice.

This complex, thus well-balanced blend has been developed by a team of professionals with the mastery of a 90 years old distillery and the king of mixology, Aristotelis Papadopulos, the first global winner of Diageo’s World Class competition.

Served in a 500ml bottle, definitely sets the right tone with its gentle bitterness and smooth texture
