Leopold Aperitivo Liqueur
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.
