Distiller Gordon Glanz produced this Italian digestif with his daughter Mia Glanz, who studied ethnobotany at the University of British Columbia. Along with being a nod to her name, Mia Amata translates to “my beloved” in Italian. Mia Amata unites expressive fruits, flowers, barks, roots and resins from the four corners of the world. At its heart are indigenous aphrodisiacs from Brazil blended with myrrh gum from Somalia, kola nut from West Africa, candied plum from Persia, cacao and vanilla bean from Mexico, mace from India, and elderflower and magnolia from British Columbia. Bitter on first approach, this complex elixir reveals flavours of dark chocolate, orange, plum, nut, and mint in a sweet finish. Mia Amata is an Italian-style digestif liqueur ready to be mixed in a cocktail, enjoyed after a meal with ice, or served chilled and neat.
