Total Beverage Solution (TBS) has announced a new partnership as the exclusive U.S. importer for Vecchio Amaro del Capo (Del Capo), a top-selling amaro from the Calabrian Region of Italy.
“We are excited to add another Italian spirit brand that is the market leader in its home country,” says Dave Pardus, CEO of Total Beverage Solution. “We look to capitalize on the brand’s credibility to grow Italy’s number-one selling amaro’s presence in the U.S. market.”
Del Capo is the flagship brand distilled by the Caffo Group, a private, family-owned company established in Calabria Italy in 1915. Today, the distillery — located in Limbadi, Italy — is fourth-generation run, and uses Calabrian-grown ingredients to produce its amaro.
Del Capo is distilled from sugar beets, then macerated in herbs, spices, roots, fruits and flowers. This family blend dates back to 1890, and results in a liqueur of earthy, bitter flavors, the company reports.
TBS will introduce Del Capo in 750-ml. bottles at first. It will soon be available nationwide through TBS’s distributing partners.
This news complements TBS’ partnerships with Molinari and Toschi, as the company continues to grow its portfolio of Italian spirits.
