Gran Classico Bitter

Tasting Notes

More bitter than Cappelletti and Contratto Bitter. Flavors are more in the "brown" range (woodsiness, pine resin, roots, bark, sassafras and savory notes). Mouthwateringly bitter.

Gran Classico Bitter is based on the original Italian Bitter of Turin recipe dating from 1864. This classic apertif is an infusion of numerous herbs and roots including wormwood, gentian, bitter orange peel, rhubarb and other aromatic plants. Complex, refreshingly bitter-sweet with a finish that lingers.


Gran Classico Bitter is extremely versatile and may be enjoyed in many fashions. Traditionally mixed into a tall glass of iced, sparkling water in the Italian style, added to a fine ale a la Francaise, or as an unforgettable ingredient in historic and modern cocktails.
