Fast Penny Spirits and Amaricano were born from Jamie’s vision to start an Amaro company combined with her career in the global digital world.
With grandparents who emigrated from Sicily, Jamie grew up embracing Italian culture and flavors from an early age. Building a company focused on creating a high-quality, complex but approachable American-made amaro was a natural fit. Being a Pacific Northwest native, Jamie also wanted to highlight the abundant organic and wild-crafted ingredients the region had to offer.
