Batch BC-02. 700 Bottles Produced
We set out a challenge for ourselves - to honor the big and bold flavors of traditional European amari while staying true to the wine aperitif form and using California ingredients. Bitter Citrus is the culmination of that vision.
It packs a punch of bitterness and tart citrus, balanced by a subtle sweetness. Bitter Citrus is a delicious ode to the beauty and depth of a Nonino or a Campari while remaining something entirely its own. This aperitif tastes like biting into a fresh, ripe grapefruit rind - bright, tart, and pleasantly bitter.
18% ABV, 750mL
Our Bitter Citrus aperitif is great chilled on its own or over ice. Try it with sparkling water and an orange slice for a simple spritz! You can also use it in place of bitter aperitifs or amaros in any cocktail for a lighter, brighter cocktail, or in place of vermouth for a bright, citrusy kick.
Decidedly bitter, but bright and refreshing, with just a touch of sweetness to balance it out. On it's own, you'll taste the bitterness of the citrus peels on the front pal·ate, followed by the lingering bitterness of gentian root.
