Christmas gifting from ITALICUS, Comte de Grasse and Strazzanti


ITALICUS® – the award-winning modern Italian aperitivo brand – was created by world-renowned mixologist and Italian spirits expert, Giuseppe Gallo, to bring back the forgotten Rosolio category. Grown, harvested and distilled in Italy, it is an elevated take on the average apertivo. You’ll notice fresh tones of ripe bergamot, balanced with a light bitter and floral spice. The striking bottle design embodies the history and heritage of Italy, with the colour of the glass representing the Capri and the Amalfi Coast shoreline.
