Cannella Spirits in the Press
Check out our feature on the international hit TV show "How It's Made".
"Cannella Spirits has done it again with its latest release, Amaro Cannella."
“Of all the spirits on this list, Cannella smells and tastes the most like real, actual cinnamon.”
“well-balanced between sweet and spicy with apple pie notes and a velvety finish.”
"The most exciting of these new brands is from recent Reno transplant Joe Cannella and his product line, Cannella Spirits. Released in late 2017, Fernet Cannella is a bolder and drier fernet that is inspired by Cannella's own extensive travel in Sicily."
“It is just beautiful. Your sense of balance – the most important aspect, in a way – is impeccable. It’s not too sweet, not at all cloying, fresh and thin but full-flavored (I was expecting a thicker, sweeter liqueur), bright with orange – even zest notes? And it has that lovely dusty cinnamon quality. Really enjoying it.”
"Made with only a handful of ingredients—alcohol, water, cinnamon, spices, and sugar—it’s a unique product in a market that has only recently begun to entertain the idea of cinnamon as a serious component in cocktails."
"On its own, Cannella makes a perfect after-dinner digestif. In a cocktail, it blends well with the smoky flavors of Scotch or mescal."
"zeroing in on the high-end Fireball market, hoping to become mixologists’ cinnamon ingredient of choice."
“Amaro is the quintessential Italian spirit, as far as I’m concerned,” Cannella says. “You’ve got this opportunity to create layers and layers and layers of flavor. I feel like a booze chef.”
"producing some the best digestivos you’ve ever tasted. On a daily basis, they help their customers slow down and savor life's most precious ingredient: TIME.
"A lot of entrepreneurs have that moment, where you feel like something needs to exist in the world, even if only in your world, and you are just frustrated enough to do something about it."
"You can drink it all year round but it definitely takes you to the October and November months.”
