Anyone know of a source where I can find it? It's basically like a tonic water, but a friend was waxing poetic about it and how he can't get it over here, so I'd love to be able to give him some as a gift.

I may have tried a sample of it at te world of coke in Las Vegas, but from what I glanced at online just now (less than a minute) it looks like it may only be available in Italy.

This guy seems to describe it as some kind of 'bitter black licorice tasting crap'.
I've seen that description, um someplace :laf:

Is. Wanted to get some for a friend who talks fondly about it, but can't get any more.

Hi Brian,
Total strike out searching for the Beverly Analcolico Apertivo. Mostly blog and Youtube stuff with Malort-face kind of reactions from folks who visited the Coke museums in Atlanta, Vegas, and Epcot.

The only company info I found was a small print mention here for a plant in Nogara, It.

As for available products with a similar description, I came up Sam Pellagrino’s Sanbitter and Chinotto, and Abbondio Red bitter here at Amazon. Hope this helps.

Beverly is HORRID!

It is quinnine flavored, not anise.

Bitter is such an understatement, it is the kind of bitter that you think about a week from now and shudder.

yes, exactly. As I mentioned in the first post, it's basically like a tonic water. I love bitter sodas, so I'd still like to try to get some.

WoC is your best bet. I wonder if one could smuggle in a decanter of some sort and get a bit of it? It would be hard to keep fresh though.
