HAMILTON, Bermuda, Jan. 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- MARTINI & ROSSI®, the leading name in Italian winemaking and a purveyor of the highest quality aromatized and sparkling wines, is proud to introduce its premium range of Non-Alcoholic Aperitivo*, presenting a balanced and sophisticated, moderate approach to yearlong consumption. Meticulously developed with the highest quality craftsmanship, MARTINI & ROSSI master blenders have worked to create a full-flavored, Italian-style, dry spirit, inspired by the 150 years of MARTINI & ROSSI expertise in wine and herbs to instantly transport consumers to the hills of Italy. Available in two fresh tasting and distinct flavors, MARTINI & ROSSI Non-Alcoholic Floreale contains a refreshingly light tasting and botanical flavor profile, paired with delicate notes of Chamomile. MARTINI & ROSSI Non-Alcoholic Vibrante offers a fruity, balanced Aperitivo option, with notes of Italian Bergamot Oranges.
With increasing demand for fresh tasting, moderate options and the recent rise in sober-curious consumers, MARTINI & ROSSI Non-Alcoholic Aperitivo is born out of a heightened desire for mindful cocktails that are brimming with vibrant flavor. Designed for those who sip mindfully, without sacrificing quality and taste, the MARTINI & ROSSI Non-Alcoholic Aperitivo range offers an ABV of less than 0.5% alcohol and contains no artificial ingredients or flavorings. Both variants are gluten free and made without compromise, with the alcohol being gently removed and naturally infused with a masterful blend of botanicals from around the world.
Marking the heritage brand's 100th year anniversary of becoming the first Italian company to export a non-alcoholic vermouth to the U.S., with its non-alcoholic Sparkling vermouth and Dry vermouth, MARTINI & ROSSI is no stranger to the no/low alcohol trend that has boomed over the past few years. According to data from the MARTINI & ROSSI parent company, Bacardi Limited, and its 2022 Cocktail Trends Report, 58% of individuals globally are drinking more non-alcoholic and low-ABV cocktails in comparison to the previous year.
"We are so excited to debut our MARTINI & ROSSI Non-Alcoholic Aperitivo," said Fabio Raffaelli, MARTINI & ROSSI North American Brand Ambassador. "Awareness is growing that you no longer have to compromise on taste to enjoy no-to-low proof cocktails. More people are introducing moderation into their lifestyle and finding new ways to host and celebrate with friends, while also adopting a more mindful approach to spirits. These options are the perfect addition to any cocktail-lovers' drinks cabinet and something that everyone can enjoy."
