One of the world’s most famous Aperitifs.
Invented in Italy in 1919, for the Padua International Fair, this orange-flavoured red liquour was named after the French word for Aperitif, “Apéro”.
The distinctive flavour and crimson colour of this Aperitif comes from a secret formula, containing 16 different botanical ingredients, including Chinese rhubarb, quinine, bitter orange essence and gentian.
A real taste of the region in which it is made, most of the ingredients used are found in the Piedmont area.
Aperol possesses flavours of bright orange, grapefruits, slight berries, rhubarb and just the faintest touch of bitterness.
More approachable and drinkable than most Aperitifs, as Aperol has a strength of just 11% ABV.
This Aperitif is a crucial ingredient in many cocktails, including the modern classic Paper Plane, and the Naked and Famous. Most notable of all, however, is that iconic summertime thirst-quencher, the Aperol Spritz.
