Foro Amaro's Distiller Alfredo Sconfienza is a graduate of Italy's prestigious University of Genoa with a degree from the institution's Pharmacy Program. Prior to his University studies, Alfredo studied at the Alba School of Enology, which focuses on viticulture (the study of grapes). Alfredo's education ignited a passion for herbals, which still burns as he continues to learn about what the earth can provide in a cocktail.
Alfredo also achieves a rich flavor for the Foro Amaro by employing a highly scientific approach. From growth to harvest, Alfredo pays special attention to when and how each botanical is selected. Extracting the herbs is done in the morning before the sun reaches a high point. An overtly hot climate, during the collection, can lead to spices evaporating, which means less flavor in the spirit.
