Backyard Spritz!

We’re drinking more at home, and in the summer, in our backyards, on our decks and patios and on our balconies. Enjoy a refreshing low ABV, lower calorie, easy to make backyard cocktail with friends today. Here at BROVO, we’re big fans of the Spritz and Aperitivo hour. Across Italy, friends and family gather for…

Fros-eh, all day!

Sometimes you have a cocktail on a patio and you really want to try it at home, but… Frozen cocktails can seem a little intimidating. They are actually pretty straightforward. It’s all about balancing sugar and alcohol in the final product and understanding how cold your freezer is. There’s nothing more refreshing than an adult…

DIY Kitchen Cocktails

It’s summer time and the living is easy. There’s nothing like picking up fresh strawberries from your local farmers market. Then take them home to make a shortcake or a fantastic summer cocktail. It’s how we started. Working in our kitchens, making liqueurs with locally available ingredients. Fresh fruit and herbs. Cucumbers, blueberries, cherries, strawberries,…

Fancy Gin and Tonic

I was kind of late to the gin game. Drinking it, as well BROVO making it. Like a few people I had some college memories around gin that weren’t great. But in the last decade there have been a lot of new gins released in different styles, including west coast gin. The focus has been…

Flavor First

No artificial flavor or color. No high fructose corn syrup. No additives or fillers. We don’t filter our modifiers- liqueurs, amari and vermouth. We don’t fine our vermouth. We’ve been focused on flavor since we started. Grown in the ground was our defining idea. Everything needed to be grown in the ground, not created in…

SUGAR SKULLS>

Orange liqueurs aren’t very sexy. They are the soccer moms of the liqueur world, helping everything out, but not really shining on their own. We aim to change that. We spent two years working on an orange liqueur. We wanted to make the margarita shine. After all that R&D, we ended up with a curacao….

PERFECT FIRST BUCKET>

  I first met Micah Melton in the fall of 2012. We had entered the Chicago market and our distributor took me to meet him. We had just released the Chicago version of Project Amaro, and I was excited to share with him what we were doing. He was Charles Joly’s second at The Aviary….

EPIC FAIL>

We formed a company at the end of June 2011. We started prepping for a launch, after almost 18 months of prep, learning, planning and formulation work. We partnered with another distillery to start making products, before we set up our own distillery. We released our first products at the end of September 2011. We…
