'Batavia lady', (batavia, now we call Jakarta the capital city of Indonesia) i named my concoction. April 21st 1879. 26 years before Fabbri company was invented. Was born strong personality lady from indonesia, named Kartini that inspired my drink. In her life, she is a pioneer of Lady's Educations and Women's Rights for Indonesians. She also wrote a lot of books. One of her masterpiece, 'Out of darkness to light'. That full fill with the true spirit of the lady that willing to change the world.
Now i meet with Fabbri and Amarena family, ready to share and spread the love and passion with kartini's spirit. And share to you all about the secret letter that Kartini wrote for lady amarena.
My batavia lady, made with:
Batavia Arrack, sugar cane and red rice based spirit, distilled in chinese pot still that gives characteristic of teak vats, balanced with citrus and chocolate aroma.
The only Fabbri Amarena cherry syrup, perfectly gives unique personality flavour of my cocktail.
Well combine with the refreshing punch style of guava juice and citrus.
And well rounded with Fernet branca that gives bitter sweet of coffee, chocolate and mint in your palate.
'Trust, beauty and wisdom' as kartini's word to motivate me to compete in Lady Amarena Cocktail Competition 2018.
