- If you love Campari and Aperol, you must try Contratto Bitter.
Contratto Bitter's recipe dates back to the 1930s and is based on a mixture of 24 herbs, spices, roots, and seeds combined with Italian Brandy. The deep magenta color comes from red beets. The distinct bitterness comes from gentian root, cinchona bark, wormwood, and angelica root. Supporting flavors of ginger, elderflower, hibiscus, rhubarb, orange peel, herbs, and spices give Contratto Bitter a wildly complex and aromatic bouquet.
A great addition to bitter cocktails like Negroni, Americano, Torino/Milano, and Jasmine. (from the distiller)
