Memories of Southern Italy
Posted by Lt. Colonel Jeff Simpson on 19th May 2015
I first came across Crodino when I was stationed in southeastern Italy near Brindisi while I served in the Air Force. My first experience with aperitifs was not pleasant. I had tried Campari and it was so bitter I couldn't finish it. Later though, a friend suggested I try Crodino because it was much lighter, sweeter and more refreshing. I was hooked on it immediately. The first sip was slightly bitter on the back of the tongue, but each sip afterwards was sweet and citrusy.
I was heartbroken when I returned to the States and couldn't find it anywhere. 35 years later, this past Spring, My son and I went to Rome and Sorrento and when I saw Crodino in one of the bars it was like seeing a long lost lover. With the advent of the Internet, I was certain that by now you must be able to find it in the States, so when we returned one of the first things I did was search for it and I found 2 places that sold it. 1 was ridiculously priced and the other was Supermarket Italy. I've been ordering Crodino from them ever since.
