Founding Spirits brings home SILVER from the 2018 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Our Founding Spirits Arroyo’s “Never Bitter” Amaro is now a two-time award winner.

San Francisco’s highly competitive event, which launched such spirits as Tito’s Handmade Vodka, brought together distillers from all over the world. More than 2,200 spirits were judged, the largest number of entries in their 18-year history.

Our Amaro apparently stole the show, making for another sweet stop on our Beverage Director Jon Arroyo’s journey to change the intimidating and bitter reputation of traditional Amaro. In fact, it is an essential ingredient in many of our favorite craft cocktails.

Farmers & Distillers is currently in its summer Tiki Amaro season, serving up an Amaro Daquiri, the Jungle Bird, Diving & Distilling, and the Amaro Zombie. Amaro is also featured in our Negroni Swizzle, and many like it straight up over ice. All of our sibling restaurants, Founding Farmers and Farmers Fishers Bakers, also serve Amaro in their drink specialties.

We invite you to stop by any of our restaurants for a taste of this Silver and Gold award winner. Or buy a bottle to enjoy at home. Founding Spirits can be purchased at Farmers & Distillers and at multiple local retailers. Our craft spirits can also be ordered online.
