Distillery Information The Barbieri Company was established in 1891 by Giuseppe Barbieri in Padua, Italy to produce and market a wide range of liqueurs. The company’s most famous and enduring product, Aperol, was especially created in 1919 by his two sons, Luigi and Silvio for Padua International Fair, a large exhibition attracting international visitors held in the their home. Silvio Barbieri named Aperol after the French word for aperitif, ‘apéro’, which he had learnt on a recent trip to France and seemed appropriate for their new bitter-sweet liqueur. | Aperol Aperitivo Liqueur | Italy | 750 mL, 11%
