Its delicate flavor is smooth and easy to drink, and lends itself to both cocktails and dessert dishes.

Our Story and process
Bitter almonds from 4 continents are grinded, through an Hydrodistillation, decantation and a percolation process the precious Essential Oil is obtained.
100 kgs of bitter almonds are needed to get only 1 liter of essential oil.
The essential oil can be extracted from different type of fruits: we only use the best quality bitter almonds. Most of other producers use “surrogate” almonds such as apricot and peach kernels seeds. The final gentle extraction and filtering are aimed to protect intensity and fragrance of the final product.
Gozio Amaretto has got on December 2013 from CERTIQUALITY (*) the official certificate testifying the use in the production of only natural flavourings that contain essential oil of bitter almond.
(*) CERTIQUALITY is a Certification Body accredited to provide enterprises with certification services covering Quality, Environmental and Safety Management Systems, as well as Product Certification.

State of the art production involves the extraction of flavours from the raw materials (seeds, spices) strictly selected and quality checked, the use of the secret formula and the intimate knowledge of all the process. All the ingredients have to be balanced and brought “in harmony” with each other.
