The word ‘Rosolio’ comes from the Latin ‘ros olis’ translated in English as ‘morning dew’
This name was given because farmers would harvest the ingredients used to make Rosolio early in the morning when the concentration of flavour was highest and coincidentally the crop was heavy with dew.
Before the appearance of Vermouth & Amaro in Italy, Rosolio was the main drink enjoyed by the king of Savoia and often served as Aperitivo di Corte’
Childhood memories of the amazing flavours I first experienced on the Amalfi coast sparkled in my imagination and I was inspired to combine these with my passion for Italian art, poetry and history into a product that I believe showcases the very best of Italy in liquid form.
BERGAMOTTO, FROM THE LATIN “CITRUS BERGAMIA,” IS REGARDED THE FINEST OF THE CITRUS FAMILY. IT IS SIMILAR TO AN ORANGE IN SIZE BUT WITH A GREEN-YELLOW PEEL, WHICH IS RICH IN ESSENTIAL OILS.
ITALICUS ROSOLIO DI BERGAMOTTO ONLY USES I.G.P. BERGAMOT FROM A UNESCO PROTECTED AREA IN CALABRIA, A THIN STRIP OF COASTLINE THAT RUNS FROM THE TYRRHENIAN COAST TO THE SHORES OF THE IONIAN SEA.
“APERITIVO” ORIGINATES FOR THE LATIN VERB “APERIRE” MEANING TO OPEN UP. TRACING ITS HISTORY, THE ROMANS BELIEVED THAT THE CHOICE OF BEVERAGE SHOULD SPARK THE APPETITE WITHOUT OVERWHELMING THE SENSES.
THE APERITIVO OCCASION IS ROOTED IN THE ITALIAN DOLCE VITA WAY OF LIFE AND THE IMPORTANCE OF CONNECTING FRIENDS AND FAMILY, WHICH CONTINUES TO GAIN POPULARITY ALL OVER THE WORLD.
