Region Info/ Origin
Aperol boasts a rich, romantic Italian history. In 1919, the Barbieri Family of Padua, Italy created Aperol’s original secret recipe, an infusion of more than 30 aromatic herbs and spices including bitter and sweet orange. The original recipe remains unchanged to this day. It was introduced as a breakthrough innovation at the Padua Exhibition as a spirit with an unusually low alcohol content of only 11%. At that time and still today, most popular spirits have much higher alcohol contents. Success followed with Aperol becoming Italy’s most popular light spirit.
