Salvatore Calabrese's Acqua Bianca launches in the UK

February 6,2020

Dutch drinks firm De Kuyper and bartender Salvatore Calabrese have released “aromatic” liqueur brand Acqua Bianca in the UK Bianca through distributor Cellar Trends.

The liqueur (which has a 24% ABV) has ingredients such as lemon, bergamot, peppermint and rose, as well as the essence of ambergris, which is traditionally used in perfumery.

Calabrese said: “My idea was to create something totally unusual that does not yet exist in the market. It had to be something very versatile – a liqueur to inspire new cocktails, and that is able to take the centre stage in any cocktail creation.

Mark de Witte, CEO of De Kuyper Royal Distillers, said: “The co-creation of liqueurs with leading bartenders is a key pillar of our global strategy and an important part of how we want to innovate and lead and premiumise the liqueur category.”
