Meletti 1870 Bitter Aperitivo
Meletti // Le Marche, Italy
Meletti 1870 Bitter Aperitivo is made with a blend of three distillates: a sweet orange, a bitter orange, and a spice and herb infusion. In addition to the citrus, disclosed botanicals include gentian, coriander, clove, and cinnamon. The bitter bright red liqueur gets its name from the year the Silvio Meletti Company was founded.
Bitter LiqueursMuch like amaro, bitter liqueurs are made from the maceration or distillation (or combination) of herbs, spices, roots, flowers, or other botanicals. Bitter liqueurs are often red or orange in color, although they needn’t be. Sugar is added before bottling. ABV varies widely.
