GSN Review: Aperol Aperitivo


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 percent. From then until today the popularity of Aperol has grown continuously, thanks to its bright orange color and unique bitter-sweet taste deriving from a secret recipe that has remained unchanged since its creation.

Aperol Aperitivo (22 abv)
Visual: Orange-red gemstone.
Nose: Lightly orange.  Summery and tropical.
Taste: Initially mild orange character, but tinged with a slightly bitter and dry edge.  It’s almost an orange twist aperitif.  Cunning and unique.
Finish: Medium long with a burnt caramel essence that is entirely colored by the ethereal orangeness.
Overall: Very nice and one of my favorite aperitif to mix with.  I use this is my take on a Negroni: equal parts Aperol, Cynar and Old Tom Gin.
GSN Rating: A-
