"Back to the blood oranges. We filled 2 macro bins with those spirits and began to add the peels and the pulp as we pressed the juice. The pulp and peels sat in the alcohol for a few weeks, the sugars and oils and other aromatic and phenolic compounds dissolving into the liquid. We mixed it up and tasted it daily. Until the day came that we tasted it and decided, THIS IS THE MOMENT.
No matter that it’s the end of the day and we’re about to go home. It had to come off right then and there. We strained the liquid off. 
Next came the botanicals. Pink peppercorns. Cloud Forest Cardamom. Quassia. Pemba cloves. Gentian. Indian cinnamon bark. Wild Cherry Bark. Macerating for about 2 weeks. In a temperature controlled fermenter with an agitator, whirring the botanicals around 24/7. Adventures in filtration followed. We are constantly iterating our filtration methods - partially out of curiosity, mostly out of dire necessity. For this, our successful methods involved gravity, some mesh screens, a nut milk bag, and maybe a filter made of rope.
A touch of sugar to tie everything together. And there you have it. Elsewhere Apertivo.. a spirit that pays homage and reverence to the magic of the ever elusive blood orange. Available for only a few short weeks each year." -Distillers notes
