Kamm & Sons, The British Aperitif, is now available in Australia through Cerbaco. The bittersweet botanical spirit was created by former bartender and cocktail maestro Alex Kammerling, who has 20 years’ experience in the drinks trade.
Inspired by the medicinal origins of alcohol, Kammerling experimented with more than 100 botanicals infused into alcohol over a five-year period trying to find the perfect balance of flavour, before creating the Kamm & Sons recipe. Two generations of Kammerlings are involved in the running of the business, and only members of the Kammerling family know the spirit’s secret recipe. Distilled in London using a blend of 45 natural botanicals including ginseng, fresh grapefruit peels and manuka honey, the taste is complex and distinctive – citrus freshness with light floral, anise and juniper notes giving way to a sweet, rich and herbal palate, ending with a long, honeyed bitterness.
