Its almost National Spritz Day – Win a free trip to Veneto, Italy

National Spritz Day

If you’ve ever struggled to strike the right balance when making your Aperol Spritz, fear no more: Aperol has just launched their convenient 375 ml pack size. They contain the perfect amount for a round of Spritzes at a joyful, intimate backyard gathering with friends! 

For those consumers who can’t decide on the perfect prosecco, Aperol has eliminated the guesswork—beginning in September, consumers will also be able to purchase off-the-shelf Spritz Kits, which include a bottle of Cinzano prosecco.

In Canada, Aperol has seen staggering growth in the last five years, growing an eye-popping 292% and outpacing the liqueurs category (+9%). Aperol’s five-year compound annual growth rate sits at 41% in Canada, compared to 2% for the liqueurs category—and despite the enormous industry-wide challenge presented by COVID-19 in 2020, Aperol was able to grow its off-premise sales by 31%.

Between its stunning growth and the fact that Canadians can finally meet up with one another for cocktails at their favourite haunt, Aperol feels there’s a lot to celebrate—so they’re going bigger and bolder than ever before for National Spritz Day on August 1.
