Romantic image of a classy couple of lovers (or friends) enjoying a dimly lit cocktail hour. The drink of choice? An Italian aperitif popular in the early 1900s! The history of this drink dates back to the 19th century when it was created by Italian pharmacist Giovanni Baroni. The recipe for the liqueur was developed using a blend of local herbs and spices, which were believed to have medicinal properties. The drink’s bitter and slightly sweet taste proved to be a refreshing way to stimulate one’s appetite before a meal. The drink was usually served on its own or mixed with soda water or another mixer. While Bitter Pastore is not as well-known today as some other Italian liqueurs like Campari or Aperol, it was popular in certain parts of Italy and could often be found in bars and restaurants in the Lombardy region where it originated. In good condition with some creasing and wear where the poster was once folded. Minor surface wear to frame. No glass.
