After the Gin & Tonic has taken wild bar nights by storm, Aperitivo drinks became the counterpart to setting the cozy mood for the evening. Aperitivo culture is more than sociable get-togethers and stands above all for fruity-bitter drinks. Vermouth is a wine-based spirit that forms a characteristically bitter-sweet aroma by adding various herbs. Together with the refreshingly dry notes of Dry Tonics it creates a perfect symphony of flavors that does not even require a high alcohol content. Cheers!

APERITIVO – IT´S NOT JUST A DRINK

Aperitivo refers not only to the fruity & bitter aperitif drinks, but rather to the convivial drinking culture of Italy. Traditionally, people start mild summer evenings with friends in a bar before heading out for a late dinner together. "Aperire" (Latin for to open) comes from Latin and means something like "stomach opener" - which is why aperitivo is usually accompanied by light drinks with a bitter note and small appetizers such as olives, nuts or cheese delicacies.

VERMOUTH WHO?

Already the ancient Greeks or Egyptians used the technique of soaking herbs in wine for the production of some spirits. Modern vermouth is also essentially produced in this way and refined by adding various spices. By the way, the wine aperitif owes its characteristically bitter-sweet taste to one of its typical ingredients: The wormwood herb.
