Amaro Montenegro is Italy’s most iconic amaro, celebrated as the world’s best liqueur truly symbolizes Italian excellence through its top-secret recipe blend created in 1885. It can be used for a variety of unique cocktails, specifically The M+M – Montenegro + Mezcal.


The M+M elegantly and uniquely combines Montenegro + mezcal and is hailed as the “IYKYK” favorite of bartenders ending their shifts, who say only the most in-the-know consumers order an M+M.

The History of Amara Montenegro:

Founder Stanislao Cobianchi wanted to create a bottle as unique as the elixir it contains. This called for something different, something distinct. And thus, our iconic bottle was born. Although revisited over the years, it has and will always keep its distinctive vial characteristic, reminiscent of a potion conjured through alchemy.

The liquor was born in 1885 with the name Elisir Lungavita and immediately received notable recognition. 11 years later, marking the marriage of the charming Princess Elena of Montenegro to Prince Vittorio Emanuele III, Stanislao decided to dedicate his storied elixir to her royal highness, changing it’s name to Amaro Montenegro.
