The world's favourite Italian liqueur created during the Italian Renaissance as a labour of love Amaretto is enjoyed the world over either on its own, over ice or in a wide variety of cocktails such as the Godfather , or a Cafe Amore . When it comes to choice there really is only one and that's Disaronno - one of the oldest known brands in the world and is made in Saronno, Italy with the same recipe since 1525.
Irish Cream is quite simply a cream liqueur based on Irish whiskey, cream, and other ingredients which can be served on its own, in mixed drinks like the Mudslide or as part of a shot like the world renowned Quick Fuck .

Vermouth is a fortified wine infused with herbs, alcohol, sugar, caramel and water according to specific recipes in Italy and France.
