About Pampelle

Handpicked on the idyllic island of Corsica, and anchoring us to the South of France, Star Ruby Red Grapefruits are the very literal star in our aperitif story. They give us our distinctive colour, bitter-sweet taste and serving versatility.

 

A SHORTCUT TO THAT HOLIDAY FEELING, EVERY DAY.

Those moments, memories and feelings we all associate with holidays.The turquoise waters and serene sounds of the French Riviera mixed with bitter-sweet ruby red grapefruit and the salty air of the Mediterranean lifestyle. Where you’re in holiday mode. Every day.

Our flavour profile, adaptability, low sugar and mixability lends itself to the designation of a world class aperitif, making for an everyday uplifting experience. One to change gear, wind down and savour the moment with a large wine glass pour of ruby red bittersweet essences.

An exciting aperitif and the perfect cocktail of wanderlust.

DISTILLED THREE WAYS

Our grapefruits are halved and macerated at length until full extraction occurs.

To enhance the natural citrus aromas, fresh peels are macerated and distilled in copper.

Our rubies are then pressed and reduced until they become a deep, velvety red.

Natural CITRUS Aromas

Infused with the highest quality citrus peels, sourced from around the world including dried Yuzu, Cedrat and Bigarade.

BLENDED WITH BOTANICALS

Batches are then blended with Cinchona tree bark quinine, natural Gentian bitters and our signature Eau-de-Vie, made from grapes that have been fermented and distilled through column stills.

REFINED IN COGNAC

Pampelle is refined on the banks of the River Charente in the Cognac region of France where every bottle is stamped with the seal of a Damselfly, a protected native species.

BITTER-SWEET BUT NOT SUGARY

Pampelle is naturally lower in sugar and best enjoyed chilled.

The result, an artisanal infusion of bitter-sweet citrus, natural botanicals and Eau de Vie. A sweetly bitter disposition approaching the floral brightness of a Vermouth Blanc, and perfect for cocktails all the same. A complex yet deeply refreshing aperitif, served simply for L’Apero.

IMPRESSIVE VERSATILITY
