"Among the canon of Italian spirits, Aperol and the Aperol Spritz cocktail are classics, available at a growing range of America's best bars. The lurid red hue is recognizable from across the room. It's light on every countin terms of alcohol content, sweetness level and texture. The gentle sweet-bitter profile goes down easyespecially when lightened with bubbles."
"Aperol's unique flavor and color is achieved through a subtle blend, with a perfect balancing of different erbs and roots. The ingredients' quality allows a very low alcoholic strength: 11Vol. A secret recipe that has been unchanged since its first creation in 1919. Please note: the bitter and sweet Aperol taste is not a banality, it is perfectly "aperitivo"." ~ Distillery notes

Bright pink orange hue. Zesty orange and ruby red grapefruit aromas. The palate resembles the bouquet, while offering sweet flavors and grapefruit peel. Bright and zippy.
Aperol is the perfect aperitif. Bright orange in color, its unique bittersweet taste is derived from a secret recipe that has remained unchanged since its creation. Aperol was created in 1919 in Padova, Italy, by the Barbieri Brothers who launched the revolutionary idea of an aperitif with an alcohol content of only 11 percent. Their stylish and versatile creation inspired a cocktail which has become the signature drink of Italy: the Aperol Spritz.
