Botivo is a hand crafted non-alcoholic aperitif made using real ingredients, no flavourings, no preservatives and nothing is pasteurised; for us, it has always been important to preserve the natural flavour profile and integrity of well-picked, carefully treated and meticulously paired ingredients.
We offer 20 serves per bottle and suggest pouring Botivo over ice, topping with sparkling water and twisting an orange zest over the glass– there’s enough complexity in each serve without the need for tonic!
Through years of evolution, humans have come to recognise bitterness as a potential toxin. Our brains reaction is to speed up our metabolism to aid digestion. This is why traditionally, apéritifs are drunk before a meal to sharpen the appetite and digestifs offered after a meal to help digestion. They take their name from the Latin verb ‘aperire’, meaning to open and, like all good aperitifs, Botivo’s distinguishing flavour is its bittersweet backbone.
