The literal meaning of “Aperitivo” is an alcoholic beverage that is consumed prior to a meal with the intention of stimulating the appetite.

Luxardo Aperitivo comes in a classy bright red colored bottle. This beautifully packaged liqueur comes with 11% or 15% ABV. It is a well-balanced infusion of various herbs, roots and different kinds of citrus fruits. The alcoholic content in Aperitivo is mild, which makes it an ideal product to create low ABV drinks and perfect for aperitivo occasions. Mix it with Prosecco and soda for a perfect Spritz. Aperitivo is GMO-free, kosher certified and vegan-friendly.

Luxardo Girolamo S.P.A was founded in 1821 by Girolamo Luxardo and is still controlled by the same founding family. It was founded in Zadar on the Dalmatian coasts.  At the end of the First World War Zara was annexed to the Kingdom of Italy. The Luxardo Company soon became one of the most important distilleries in the country. The liqueur produced was of such high quality that it attracted the attention of friends and admirers. Girolamo, exploited this family initiative, founding in 1821 a factory for the production of Maraschino.
