Aperol is the perfect aperitif. Bright orange in color 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 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%. From then until today the popularity of Aperol has grown continuously, thanks to its unmistakable bittersweet flavour, along with the bright orange color. Purchased in the ‘90s by Barbero 1891, Aperol then entered Gruppo Campari’s portfolio, reaching new records of popularity and diffusion.
The signature drink, Aperol Spritz, can be easily prepared by mixing Prosecco followed by Aperol in equal parts, in a glass full of ice, topped with a splash of soda and garnished with a slice of orange. It can be enjoyed before lunch or dinner as a true Italian aperitif, as a lighter option at an after-work get-together with colleagues or friends or combined with food.
With its orange glow and bittersweet taste, Aperol Spritz has been the drink of togetherness for more than a century.
