Italy's favourite light aperitif: zesty and refreshing
Aperol is the perfect aperitif. Bright orange in colour it has a unique bitter-sweet taste deriving from a secret recipe that has remained unchanged since its creation. An infusion of precious primary components, many herbs and roots in a perfectly balanced combination. Aperol’s strength is its low alchol content, only 11%.
Aperol originated in 1919 in Padova, it was a product of the Barbieri Brothers who launched the revolutionary idea of an aperitif with an alcohol content of only 11 percent. From then until today the popularity of Aperol has grown continuously, thanks to its sparkling and refreshing signature drink, the Aperol Spritz, one of the fastest-growing cocktails in the UK on-trade and the #1 Italian cocktail (source: CGA Report 2014).
