ITALICUS Rosolio di Bergamotto is an aperitivo brand that delivers fresh tones of ripe bergamot, balanced with a light bitter and floral spice. Championing the humble bergamot, a fragrant citrus fruit that grows throughout the Mediterranean, ITALICUS is created by world-renowned mixologist, Giuseppe Gallo and produced at a family-owned distillery, established in 1906 in Moncalieri, Torino. Each of the ingredients that go into making ITALICUS are sourced from across Italy, including IGP bergamot from a UNESCO-protected area in Calabria; cedro from Sicilia; Roman chamomile from Lazio; and melissa balm, lavender, yellow roses and gentian from Northern Italy.
Now, thanks to its innovative partnership with Madison, ITALICUS cocktails can be enjoyed outdoors, in sunny, summery London; sipped slowly whilst looking out over its majestic rooftops. It’s a one-of-a-kind experience, not to be missed.
