Patrick & Susan of Bilaro Amaro

  • Local Cellar 2801 22nd Street San Francisco, CA, 94110 United States (map)

Bilaro is a dream realized by husband and wife team Patrick Bickford and Susan LaRossa. Patrick and Susan met and fell in love while working in the fast-paced wine business, in restaurants in New York City in the early aughts. While wine was the centerpiece, amaro was always in the background. Later settling in Sebastopol, they began recipe testing and developing a plan for their own amaro. Living so close to some of the best vineyards in California helped convince them to use premium grape spirit as their base, rather than the usual grain spirit base of most amari.  A mutual friend introduced them to Travis Smith of Spiritsmith, who became their distiller. Join Patrick & Susan for a real jewel of an amaro.

Tasting is free and available anytime from 5:00 - 7:00.  Must be at least 21 years old.
