Leopold Aperitivo Liqueur

$28.50
Size
Leopold Bros. Aperitivo is the first American take on the classic bitter aperitivo, from the Latin word “to open”. The spirit is a mainstay of Old World dining culture as the opening note to a meal, big or small. Enjoy it in Negronis, spritzes, and paired with soda and lime.

In line with the traditional Italian style, the spirit centers around major flavor components: bitterness from gentian root and sweetness from cane sugar. Citrus is the third major component, so Leopold adds distilled coriander and grapefruit peels for a bright, citrus aroma. These components are mixed with a variety of fragrant flowering botanicals, including hyssop and Artemsia pontica. The cordial is colored with natural cochineal, which adds the vibrant red color that one expects from a traditional Aperitivo as it has been used in spirits for hundreds of years.
