Event Category: Food & Drink Events, Spirits & Ciders, and Tastings

  • Apéritifs and digestifs are meant to begin and end the meal – they actually serve a purpose! Apéritifs are meant to stimulate our appetite, preparing our system for the meal ahead, while digestifs do exactly what it is you most likely assume they’re supposed to do, help us digest the meal. Most aperitifs are a blend of fortified wines with strong herbal qualities. It’s a drink that invites you to slow down and enjoy the moment. Like aperitifs, the history of digestifs goes back for centuries. The herbs, spices and other plants used to make many digestifs were thought to ease the stomach and help food digest.
