What is an APERITIVO?

"Aperitivo" is derived from the Latin aperire, “to open” - this is a drink meant to open the evening before dinner, open our doors to new guests, and open our minds to stimulating conversation.

The Story: Spring Rhubarb Cocktail

In 2019, Meredith Erickson published Alpine Cooking which has since become the definitive guide to alpine cuisine. The book contains the recipe for a "spring rhubarb cocktail," a mesmerizing elixir of rhubarb puree and elderflower tonic.

Meredith + Richard

Inspired by the Spring Rhubarb Cocktail, Meredith teamed up with former master sommelier and CKBG co-founder Richard Betts to bottle a version of it and satisfy a desire they both had for the exact aperitivo they always wanted to drink but couldn’t find.

The Beginnings

Meredith and Richard developed over 30 versions of the recipe before landing on its current instance: a rhubarb infusion with notes of plum, gentian, and a hint of rosemary for salinity. Doladira is a perfectly balanced aperitivo that makes you feel like you're in an alpine meadow and leaves you thirsty for more.

Bringing It Together

Every piece along the way has been created with the utmost care; from the original cocktail to the custom glass bottle to our all-natural final recipe. We are now proud to share Doladira with you!
