Ambros has a suggested retail value of $39.99, and is available in their 750ml custom bottle made by Stölzle Glass. Using only 100-percent real bananas in the fruit infusion process, Ambros Banana Whiskey has no artificial flavors or preservatives, no ‘natural’ flavoring, no fruit juice concentrate and no added sugars or syrups.


“We started Ambros Banana Whiskey with the desire to create a truly authentic flavored spirit that everyone could appreciate. It was a long journey, but one that we fully embraced and couldn’t be more proud of the end result,” said Jeff Tomastik, president of Derby Spirits.


Since launch, the whiskey has already found a home with several of the valley’s premier hospitality venues. Notable companies and venues include Hakkasan Group at its namesake club, Wet Republic, Omnia and Searsucker; Clique Hospitality at The Still, Apex and Hearthstone; at Wynn venues Intrigue, Encore Beach Club and XS; and restaurants including STK, Yellowtail and Scotch 80; and at Topgolf Las Vegas, to name a few.


Ambros is great served neat, on the rocks or as a cocktail such as the “Banhattan,” a play on the classic Manhattan, combining Ambros Banana Whiskey, sweet vermouth, Angostura Bitters with a lemon peel and cherry garnish.
