The Italian 'Bitter Orange'
Adelaide Hills Distillery's The Italian small batch bitter orange aperitif is inspired by the classic aperitifs of Italy.
700mL | 20% Alc/Vol
A product we have long desired to produce, an orange style aperitif reminiscent of the orange bitters of Italy.
An Australian expression marrying traditional European bittering herbs with predominantly Australian ingredients at its core. The nose is herbal, floral and bursting with bright Riverland orange. The palate is deliciously bitter, fresh and citrus driven.
