If you’re unfamiliar with aperitifs, Haus notes that the category of spirits consists of “complex flavors that typically come from fruits, herbs, roots, and botanicals.” Their flavor profiles can range anywhere from on the bitter side to very sweet and/or quite fruity. Generally, the spirits are low-ABV, which means they have less alcohol than whiskey but more than wine. Overall, aperitifs are perfect for enjoying anytime of the day or night — on the rocks or with simple mixers like soda or tonic.
With an abundance of intriguing and delicious flavor combinations like Citrus Flower, Yuzu Ginger, Peach Passionfruit, Rose Rosé, Spiced Cherry, and Grapefruit Jalapeno, a monthly subscription starts at $35.
