Applewood Økar 500ml

Adelaide Hills, SA



About The Okar

Brendan and Laura Carter's obsession with distilling, in a very literal sense, their love for this great sun-drenched land into beverage form seems to know no bounds.

Here is their take on a bitter aperitif (ala Campari or Aperol) forged from Riberries, the fruits of the Lilly Pilly plant and infused with native bush herbs. The Økar is a brighter and fresher version of an amaro. Bitterness and herbal characters with a dash of sweetness balanced on a pin head.

It's an essential ingredient in their plan to create an all Australian Negroni. This, a splash of Aussie made Prosecco, a dash of soda and a slice of orange, and you've got the Australian Summer in a glass.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"The Riberry's cranberry-tartness, hints of clove and bark-like bitterness make it well-suited for an Australian aperitif. Riberries aren't the only stars in this beverage - alongside we see Davidson Plum, Finger Limes, Lemon Myrtle, Saltbush, Rivermint, Peppermint and Strawberry Gum Leaves (just to name a few!)." - Applewood
