Aperol is an Italian aperitif that has been likened to Cointreau, without the spirited undertone. Aperol is a lighter indulgence, at only 11% and best when mixed with soda water, fruit juice or sparkling wine. An aperitif by definition, Aperol is the drink to warmly greet your guests upon their arrival and whet their appetites. Alternatively, Aperol is the Italian's refreshment of choice for those long, lazy afternoons relaxing and gossiping in the plaza. Aperol has become Italy's national pre-dinner drink where it claims nearly one quarter of the aperitif market.
Tasting Note: Lightly alcoholic, zesting orange, complex herbal scents with a touch of vanilla. Intense orange top with herbal and woody body notes pleasantly bittersweet and salty. Velvety and rounded, with long-lasting orange and wood memories.
