Iconic italian liqueur,
since 1885

Our Founder Stanislao Cobianchi wanted to create a bottle as unique as the elixir it contains. This called for something different, something distinct. And thus, our iconic bottle was born. Although revisited over the years, it has and will always keep its distinctive vial characteristic, reminiscent of a potion conjured through alchemy.

THE ICONIC SHAPE

A SYMBOL OF ALCHEMY

Our liquor was born in 1885 with the name Elisir Lungavita and immediately received notable recognition. 11 years later, marking the marriage of the charming Princess Elena of Montenegro to Prince Vittorio Emanuele III, Stanislao decided to dedicate his storied elixir to her royal highness, changing it’s name to Amaro Montenegro.

THE MEANING BEHIND THE NAME 

A ROYAL BAPTISM
Crafted from a secret blend of 40 botanicals
collected from all over the world. Here are just a few.
