Description of Aperol
- Colour: Aperol has the distinctive vibrant orange hue for which it is famous.
- Aroma: The primary and enervating scent of orange zest is complemented by herbal and vanilla notes.
- Taste: A velvety mouthfeel balances the bittersweet and zestful top note of orange and complex herbal and woody undertones. A long, pleasant aftertaste that is ever-so-slightly salty and bitter.
PRODUCER: Campari Group, an important member of the global branded beverage industry, with a portfolio of more than fifty premium and super premium brands marketed and distributed to most countries in the world. It was founded in 1860, and is based in Sesto San Giovanni.
PRODUCTION DETAILS: The recipe for the creation of Aperol has not changed since it was first introduced for the world's enjoyment at the Padova International Fair in 1919. The recipe has also, remarkably, remained a secret for over a hundred years and counting. It is known to contain cinchona, gentian, and rhubarb. Aperol is lighter, less bitter, and lower in alcohol content than its family member Campari. Aperol is of course best known for its use in the delightful aperitif, the Spritz, a holiday in a glass. One mouthful and you find yourself, in your mind at least, outside a small cafe in Bologna or Venice, enjoying complimentary nuts and olives and watching the world go by.
