If you’re a Thebarton local or connoisseur of fine spirits alike, you may have noticed that Ambra Spirits’ distillery and bar just west of the city has been lights out.
But in joyous news for locals and beyond, the unmissable blue and yellow cellar door is set to reopen this year following a beaut refurbishment.
The opening will also mark Ambra’s 25th birthday in the biz, with the venue having gone all out in order to stun the public later in the year once all is revealed.
The Thebarton cellar door will boast two new outdoor eating area, an updated kitchen to accommodate a new tapas-style menu, and a super cool bar which is set to be the main attraction, along with satisfyingly smooth, polished concrete floors.
Ambra Spirits business manager, Marcus Pagliarulo has confirmed that there’ll be more tasty food up for grabs and plenty more seating to enjoy the fare on offer, which includes the likes of Limoncello marinated chicken wings, and a blood orange chicken dish, at a glance.
With beginnings in 1998 by the late Libero De Luca, Ambra Spirits has grasped the tastebuds of many a tipple-lover by utilising top-notch Australian products all whilst being guided by authentic Italian family recipes, handed down through generations.
These days, Peppe Fusco and Nando Focareta are at the helm of Ambra and have been continuing Libero’s legacy, with a newfound flare which will be evident come the anticipated reopening in October this year.
But in the meantime, Ambra is still open for bottle sales, and the team are currently doing the hard yards in the Riverland to transform this season’s lemons into Ambra’s signature limoncello and citrus gin.
