Le cocktail Americano est un cocktail rafraîchissant à la fois pétillant et amer, parfait pour une journée d'été.

Pour finir, ajoutez de la glace et une garniture au citron.

Inspiration behind the product

Every spring in Boves it is tradition to climb Mount Bisalta which stands behind the Argalà distillery. During their hike in 2016, Piero and Enrico took a break with a cup of sugared hibiscus herbal tea and found themselves surrounded by deep-blue gentian flowers.

Their natural curiosity took over as they tasted the flower that is well known for its bitterness. After sipping their tea to sweeten their mouths again, they were surprised how well the flavours complemented each other.

What makes it unique

With a unique flavour stemming from an artistic blend of ingredients, Argala’s Apertivo Bitter has become their best selling product. It is made using a variety of herbs, roots, flowers, and fruits including orange peel, rosemary, fennel seeds and ginger. Its bitterness comes from gentian flowers cultivated from the mountainside, while its vibrant red colour and sourness come from an infusion of hibiscus flowers.
