Gran Classico Bitter is based on the original “Bitter of Turin” recipe dating from the 1860’s. This classic aperitif is an infusion of numerous herbs and roots including bitter orange peel, wormwood, gentian, rhubarb, and other aromatic plants. Gran Classico Bitter’s color is a natural result of the herbs and plants infused into pure grain spirit produced to the highest Swiss standards and is not artificially colored in any way. Gran Classico Bitter is extremely versatile and may be enjoyed in many fashions. Traditionally mixed into a tall glass of iced, sparkling water in the Italian style or added to a fine ale, a la Française, or as an unforgettable ingredient in historic cocktails, such as the Negroni.

While interesting in a Negroni, it's phenomenal in a Boulevardier.
