Berto Aperitivo Liqueur
Situated in Castelnuovo Don Bosco in Piedmont, the Distilleria Quaglia was purchased in 1906 by the great-grandfather of the current distillery director, Carlo Quaglia. A succession of ancestors passing historical and traditional knowledge of distillation, liqueur, and vermouth production from one generation to the next brings us to present day. Our fortunate introduction to Carlo and his masterful artisanship came from brothers Alessandro and Gian Natale Fantino, to whom they entrust the production of their Barolo Chinato with staggering results.
Their aperitivo is a fantastic alternative to Aperol and other lightly bitter liqueurs in that style. A neutral spirit is infused for three weeks with various botanicals, including bitter orange, gentian, ginger, and rhubarb. Perfect on it's own over ice, with soda water, with sparkling wine in a spritz, or in a lighter spin on the Negroni. Bottled at 15% abv with 250 grams of sugar per liter.
