Review and Tasting
Sampled on 29/08/2016
Clear, light rusty red with bright glints.
Zesty orange and grapefruit with underlying herbal notes.
Light and subtle, bitter sweet and zesty with bitter orange, grapefruit sherbet and herbal rooty complexity. Faint clove spice.
Lingering orange and grapefruit light bitter zestiness.
As bitter Italian aperitivos go, Peychaud’s is on the light side – slightly drier and rootier than Aperol but much tamer than the likes of Campari. Low in alcohol, this is a middle of the road crowd-pleasing Aperitivo.
