Crodino is a non-alcoholic bitter aperitif, produced since 1964. From 1995 it is part of Gruppo Campari. It is an orange colored drink made of herbal extracts and sugar, and it is sold in 10 cl (6 oz) bottles. It is primarily consumed in Italy and other European countries.

History[edit | edit source]

Crodino takes its name from Crodo, a small town located in the Piedmont region of Italy, where it was originally created and produced. In 1964, the first bottle of Crodino was made and it quickly became a popular drink throughout Italy. In 1995, the brand was acquired by the Campari Group, a multinational company that produces alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.

Ingredients[edit | edit source]

Crodino's unique taste comes from the traditional blend of herbs, plants, fruit peels, roots, and woods. The exact recipe is a closely guarded secret, but it is known to contain extracts of quinine, gentian, and ginseng among other ingredients. The drink is also characterized by its distinctive orange color, which is derived from the use of caramel sugar.

Consumption[edit | edit source]

Crodino is typically served chilled, in a wine glass, and garnished with a slice of orange. It is often consumed as an aperitif, meaning it is served before a meal to stimulate the appetite. Despite being non-alcoholic, Crodino is often enjoyed in a similar manner to alcoholic aperitifs, such as vermouth or Campari.
