Økar - a phonetic spin on the word 'Ochre' - how Australian's might pronounce it. It's an Amaro - probably a bit of an esoteric term to the uninitiated, although bitter/herbal aperitifs have been popular for more than a century - Aperol or Campari ring any bells? Whilst aperitifs in this category are generally marketed alongside images of the Amalfi coastline, roadsters with the top down, winding roads and a spritzer in-hand, we felt a more comfortable image could be 'chilling at the beach' - be it Noosa, Bondi or Cottesloe. Or perhaps 'sitting in a café' - be it in the multitude of laneways across our country. We like to take an Australian-spin on things - and dry aperitifs seem to epitomise a renaissance in contemporary Australian drinking.

Økar is a low alcohol (12%) aperitif, best served as a spritzer - with sparkling wine/Prosecco, a dash of soda - and (if you can find it) - a crushed Lemon Myrtle leaf - alternatively, a bit of Orange peel goes a long way!

Strength: 12% abv
Volume: 500ml
