Aperol

70cl | 11% ABV | Italy

Aperol needs no introduction as the ultimate aperitif. Its unique bittersweet taste and vibrant orange colour derive from a secret and original recipe, that has remained unchanged since 1919.

The aroma has zesty orange with complex herbal scents, along with a touch of vanilla just beneath. Less bitter than Campari, but to taste has similar intense orange top notes with a herbal, woody body. Serve in a Spritz!

About this product

It is made by infusing ingredients such as bitter and sweet oranges, rhubarb, quinine and gentian together in a process similar to Campari. Notably, it's much lower in ABV, which is why it makes for such a light and refreshing drink.

Aperol was especially created in 1919 by Luigi and Silvio Barbieri for the Padua International Fair, an international exhibition held in their hometown. Since 2003 it has been part of Gruppo Campari.

Originally more heavily associated as being a Venetian spirit, Aperol is now a cult classic in the Aperitivo world and less city specific. It is made at one (or several) of Gruppo Campari's eighteen plants worldwide.
