Made from handpicked grapefruits from the sun drenched, French island of Corsica, which is nestled in the idyllic Mediterranean Sea, Pampelle is a complex aperitif. The hero of Pampelle is the Star Ruby Red Grapefruit that is responsible for its sweetly bitter disposition.
Pampelle is distilled three ways:
? Grapefruits are halved and macerated at length until full extraction occurs.
? To enhance the natural citrus aromas, a portion of the grapefruit maceration is distilled through copper stills.
? The rubies are pressed and reduced until they become a deep, velvety red.
Batches are blended with tree bark quinine, natural Gentian bitters and a signature Eau-de-Vie, made from grapes that have been fermented and distilled. Pampelle is 30% lower in sugar than other leading Spirit Aperitifs.
