Some aperitifs come together in this holistic way where its hard to pick out the various ingredients — others allow their constituent parts to shine. Day Trip is the latter for me — strawberry is front and center stage, with the woody and bitter flavors of the quassia quickly following up. Some green notes from the nettle, perfume notes from the florals. it represents, to me, a drive through the North Fork, past the vineyards and the fields of flowers and the peaceful waters punctuated with dramatic rock formations. Day Trip is ushering in the warmer months and the summer celebrations that will soon crown the seasons Strawberry Queen.

The story of Day Trip begins with the Mattituck Lions Strawberry Festival – a local carnival devoted to all things strawberry. One year, some 2 tons of strawberries were somehow leftover and, it seemed, destined for the compost pile. Our friend Joey, a Mattituck Lion and the manager of his family’s vineyard, rescued the strawberries and brought us a big tote of strawberry wine. We distilled 100 gallons into a strawberry eau de vie and added it back into the wine with a whole mess of vibrant botanicals. Nettle, quassia, jasmine, rose, nutmeg fruit… leaving that to macerate for a few months before filtering, sweetening and bottling. We thought we were making a Strawberry Vermouth — the first in a whole series of fruit vermouths we’d release — that is before the government insisted any vermouth be made from wine grapes. With that, a quick pivot, a detour, a Day Trip Strawberry Amaro was born.
