Hotel STARLINO launches STARLINO Arancione – the new summer spritz
Fine wine and spirits company Biggar and Leith, today launched an exciting new addition to The Hotel STARLINO range of Vermouths, Aperitivos and Maraschino Cherries, STARLINO Arancione. STARLINO Arancione capitalises on the trend for Orange Wines as it is made from white wine, and orange distillate – distilled from IGP certified Sicilian Blood Oranges, Lemon Peel plus seven other herbs and botanicals. STARLINO Arancione makes for the perfect summer spritz and is delicious on the rocks or topped up with tonic.
STARLINO Vermouths and Aperitivos hail from the Vergnano family’s Torino Distillati, in Piedmonte, North-Eastern Italy. Beppe Ronco, Master Distiller and Winemaker at Torino Distillati said, “We are delighted to launch this latest edition to our portfolio of Vermouths and Aperitivos, celebrating Italian heritage as well as championing Italian produce. STARLINO Arancione is a wonderful and versatile summer drink bursting with flavour, which we hope consumers will enjoy over the summer months and beyond.”
The Hotel STARLINO Vermouths and Aperitivos are packaged in beautiful, heavy apothecary-style bottles. They are finished with ceramic and wooden stoppers, reminiscent of an antique doorknob. The front label resembles a vintage luggage label and the back label an elegant old-fashioned “Do Not Disturb” door hanger. The packaging is inspired by and celebrates Italy’s incredible turn of the twentieth-century design and architecture. This design style, known in Italy as Stile Liberty, is famous in Torino. Besides, as Ronco said, “We have so many friends and visitors to our distillery we sometimes refer to it as a Hotel!”
STARLINO Arancione completes a trio of Hotel STARLINO Vermouths and Aperitivos, following the launch of STARLINO Rosé and STARLINO Rosso in May, along with STARLINO Maraschino Cherries in June.
At 17% alcohol, all three drinks in the Hotel STARLINO range capitalise on the trend for lower alcohol cocktails.
STARLINO Arancione Tasting Notes: STARLINO Arancione is delicious, semi-dry vermouth that is rich, full-bodied and vibrant. Tropical aromas are met by flavours of blood orange and peach that fill the palate.
STARLINO Arancione is available in the UK via Amazon, Proof Drinks, The Whisky Exchange , Master of Malt from£23 for a 75cl bottle.
