The name says it all: Aperol is the perfect aperitif. Bright orange in colour, it has a unique taste, thanks to the secret recipe which has never been changed, with infusions of selected ingredients including bitter and sweet oranges and many other herbs and roots in perfect proportions. Aperol’s strength is in its low-alcohol content of only 11%
.Aperol was created in Italy in 1919. Its low alcohol content, distinctive orange hue and complex bitter-sweet notes, lent to it by its orange and rhubarb-root ingredients, meant it immediately found its way into the hearts of locals.
Come the summer of 1950: the traditional serve of Venetian white wine and soda evolved to become 3 parts Prosecco, 2 parts Aperol and 1 part soda water. Served over ice and finished with a slice of orange, Aperol Spritz is the perfect companion to a summer’s day.
Today Aperol is the No.1 aperitif in Italy, and recently won double gold at the San Francisco World Spirits
