Pampelle is a red grapefruit aperitif liqueur. After harvest, Corsican grapefruit is sent to a winery in south-western France where the grapefruit is infused with botanical distillates such as Japanese yuzu, French cedrat, Haitian bitter orange bigarade, quinine, gentian bitter and grape eau-de-vie.
The brand's imagery with the seal of a Damselfly, a protected native species, is said to "represent the environment in which Pampelle is produced."

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 20/02/2018


Clear, bright scarlet red.


Zesty grapefruit, Tooty Fruity candy, tropical fruit, orange squash and faint vanilla.


Bittersweet. Grapefruit flavoured boiled sweets (hard candy) with barky rooty bitterness.


Long bitter grapefruit finish with lingering rooty bitterness and very light black pepper bite.


Bittersweet – balancing grapefruit bitterness and jammy grapefruit to produce a grapefruit aperitif that is perhaps a tad overly grapefruity. The brand's signature "French Negroni" (with equal parts Pampelle, dry gin and bianco vermouth) makes for a bittersweet jammy grapefruit flavoured Negroni, although this calms and the drink becomes more balanced with dilution.
