Premium spirits importer and distributer, Mangrove UK, has today announced that listings have been secured with Waitrose for Pampelle Aperitif and Vecchia Romagna. The products will be available in store and online at waitrose.com from 20th July.
Pampelle is an artisanal, versatile liqueur capturing the bitter-sweet essence of ruby red grapefruit. Created using hand-picked Ruby Red Grapefruit from Corsica, the grapefruit is distilled three-ways and then citrus infused with peels from around the world and blended with natural botanicals. It is 30% lower in sugar than other leading aperitifs.
- Pampelle & Tonic, a lower alcohol alternative to a traditional G&T
- Pampelle Spritz, the perfect summer serve with added fizz from Prosecco and soda – ideal as a summer sharer.
Vecchia Romagna is the world’s best-selling Italian brandy with an enthralling history and heritage. Created by Jean Bouton, who descended from a family of French distillers and the official supplier at Napolean’s Court. In 1820 Bouton opened a distillery in the Italian city of Bologna and Vecchia Romagna is still produced there 200 years later from premium Trebbiano grapes.
John Vine, Buyer Spirits from Waitrose, commented:
“We are delighted to have selected these two brilliant brands to join the collection at Waitrose. We are always looking for interesting new products which will inspire our customers, who expect the very highest quality from us. These two brands bring with them a high quality, flavoursome drinking experience and I look forward to seeing them on our shelves this July.”
Nick Gillett, Managing Director, Mangrove UK, added:
“It’s great to extend Mangrove’s successful relationship with Waitrose and list another two high quality Mangrove brands. We look forward to providing Waitrose customers the chance to discover Pampelle’s distinctive flavours and appreciate Vecchia Romagna’s rich taste and heritage.”
Pampelle will be stocked in 199 Waitrose stores across the UK.
Vecchia Romagna will be listed in 84 stores.
