Group of friends having aperitivo occasion drinking aperol spritz

Aperol is celebrating the start of summer and supporting both on- and off-premise operators by picking up the tab for 100,000 Aperol Spritz across the country.

With NSW celebrating Freedom Day last week, and Victoria starting to reopen later this week, the Aperol Spritz ‘Celerating Togetherness’ kicks off today. Between now and 2 January 2022, customers can purchase two Aperol Spritz drinks in participating bars and venues, Australians can redeem one of the purchases for free.

The offer also applies in retail stores, by purchasing two Aperol Spritz Ready to Serve packs from a bottle shop, you can redeem one of the packs up to the value of $24.

Paolo Marinoni, Marketing Director for Aperol, said:“Celebrating and reconnecting with those we love over a refreshing drink is at the heart of aperitivo culture, one that Aperol has been synonymous with for more than 100 years. Australian bars, venues, and restaurants have had a tough year.

“As hospitality opens in Sydney and across NSW, with Victoria to follow, we wanted to play a part in celebrating being together again with an Aperol Spritz on us. Each drink represents two people reconnecting – a joy shared is a joy doubled. Salute.”

Bars and restaurants across NSW welcome the support to help drive Australians into venues, providing a great reason to Celebrating Togetherness whilst supporting local venues

Stefano Catino from Maybe Sammy’s Bar in Sydney said: “We have been waiting for this moment to open our doors and get our patrons back together again, I’m sure all venues across NSW are feeling the same.

“We are getting back to what we love, creating unforgettable shared moments and welcoming back friends, old and new. It’s an exciting time for our industry and I can think of 100,000 reasons people should celebrate coming together with an Aperol Spritz this summer.”
