amaretto

Type

Liqueurs, nut or bean-flavored

Description

Generic for Italian almond flavored liqueur, now produced internationally. Notable brand example: Amaretto Di Saronno (which has now largely dropped the "amaretto" from its name, much as Cointreau dropped the term "triple sec" from its label 90 years ago - and for the same reason: too many competitors making amarettos and devaluing the liqueur Di Saronno made famous.)

Flavor

almond and peach pits

Availability

Generally available. Produced and sold in Italy and United States. Distributed world-wide. Available for on-line ordering in some markets.

Substitute

creme de Almond, creme de noyeau
