About The Amaro

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.

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 yourself an Australian Summer in a glass.

The best Negroni Amaro

Rich and not too sweet, this makes the best Negroni ever. I’ve tried lots of others made with Australian botanicals but this is by far the best.

Bitterness!

It's difficult to know what to say. I made Okar Spritz for four people. My sister (who thinks that tonic water is sweet) added lemonade; my Dad made suggestions. My response was closer to the Dingo from Wombat Stew. The smell is pleasantly medicinal with a hint of peppermint/eucalypt, and a first the taste is pleasant - which quickly devolves in to an bitter aftertaste that chases it's self round the tongue. It was the taste equivalent of a primary schooler's dance concert - all different and all equally bad. My mum, on the other hand (who LIKES celery) enjoyed it and finished hers.

Negroni s will never be the same without this!

Applewood Okra Amaro is supremely handcrafted using native botanicals and, mixed with a good gin + vermouth, has to be The best ingredient for a very fine Negroni indeed!

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts?

No our pricing is aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

No, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

Can I special order a wine you do not sell?

If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
