Luxardo Launches Bitter Bianco For White Negroni And Aperitifs

luxardo-bitter-bianco
Luxardo Bitter Bianco launches in the UK this Spring. The distilled infusion of bitter herbs, aromatic plants and citrus fruits is made to a recipe created by the Luxardo family who have re-imagined the classic Italian aperitivo. At 30 percent abv. it has a transparent ivory colour, which makes it ideal for mixing in a White Negroni. Luxardo global brand ambassador Gareth Franklin will be creating further adventurous new serves, with an individual take on Margarita and Daiquiri styles. Luxardo Bitter Bianco has the fruity aromas of sweet and bitter oranges, balanced by hints of spices and botanicals. Its smooth taste combines fresh citrus with a gentle bitter finish.

Similar to the creation of Luxardo Maraschino, the Luxardo Bitter Bianco also stands out as a liqueur which is unusually produced by distillation. This creates a new dimension of flavours and its signature colour, whilst still staying true to its bitter-sweet heritage.

Distinctly different with a smoother taste profile, it makes for an alternative 21st century style of Negroni, when it is mixed with gin and white vermouth. To enjoy its taste in the freshest way, drink it over ice with a splash of soda or on the rocks, garnished with a wedge of orange or lemon. Luxardo global brand ambassador Gareth Franklin adds, “Luxardo Bitter Bianco is a very modern style of distilled liqueur and works perfectly as an aperitif. It has classic Italian bitter notes and is blended to be soft, floral and aromatic; a very intriguing creation. I will be hosting a roadshow to trial new mixes with bartenders in key cities, and look forward to new taste adventures.”

Marketing manager Craig Chapman adds, “The Luxardo classic liqueurs & specialities have established themselves very successfully in top bars. This year, Cellar Trends will be backing Luxardo Bitter Bianco to join the line-up of Maraschino, Amaretto and Limoncello, and the Sambuca range. They are authentic, full strength choices which bartenders can rely on to really deliver on taste.”
