Fast Penny Spirits is a distillery in Seattle, Washington focusing on creating high-quality amaro using organic and wild-crafted ingredients under the Amaricano brand. Rooted in complexity, but encouraging ease, Amaricano is a perfect intersection of tradition and modernity. Fast Penny is defined by everyday decisions that impact the greater good through sustainability and empowerment of women and community.
Inspired by Italian tradition, Amaricano balances rich and herbaceous tones for a breathtakingly bold experience. Distilled West Coast grapes frame this lush amaro, brimming with cocoa nibs, Rainier cherries, Yakima hops and locally foraged truffles bound with a bevy of botanicals. Each thoughtfully sourced ingredient enriches the velvety brew for a lasting romp with a bittersweet finish. Sip Amaricano neat, over ice or swirl it into your favorite cocktail. Fast Penny Spirits is a sustainably-minded company. Made in Seattle, Washington.
Co-founders, Jamie Hunt and Holly Robinson met through a mutual industry professional who insisted they work together after hearing Jamie’s vision to start an Amaro company.
Holly’s background in non-profit media development, sustainable farming and the distilling industry paired perfectly with Jamie’s career in the global digital world. While planning the future of Fast Penny Spirits they quickly bonded over shared love of cookbooks, shellfish and bitter joys in life.
