We are two brothers from Forest Hill in South London, who make British versions of classic Italian liqueurs.
Based in Forest Hill, South East London, we have worked in the hospitality industry for as long as we can remember.
Making drinks has been a major part of our lives and, if we’re honest, drinking them even more so! We make our spirits by hand, using traditional methods in a workshop in Forest Hill, SE23.
Back in 2009 Rob married into a Sicilian family a few years ago. and inherited the treasured family recipe for their Amaro.
In the years since we have made this Amaro many times back in London, but we always knew we wanted to make an Amaro that represented us and our British heritage. That is how Dispense was born. We studied the recipes from Culpeper’s ‘London Dispensatory’, a 17th Century catalogue of London’s rich history of tonics and liqueurs. We then infused them with the intense aromas of Sicily to create something that is uniquely British but retains the heat and charm of a Sicilian Summer. Our Dispense Amaro.
You will find our products gracing some of the world's best bars (Dandelyan and Nightjar), and the world's chic-est hotels (The Connaught and Claridge's).
