San Pellegrino’s stylish and colourful Sparkling Fruit Beverages convey a sense of joy, spontaneity and colour. The Sparkling Fruit Beverages, with their strong feel of genuineness, belong to a lively atmosphere. The recipe still respect the Italian old tradition of “spremuta” (literally squeezed juice), with no added preservatives; made with sparkling mineral water with naturally occurring (non-synthetic) CO2 gas, is rich in real juices with a reduced sugar content. The balance between delicate bubbles and flavour gives them their unmistakable taste. Today as in the past, the finest oranges and lemons are selected, ripened in the sun of the vast groves of Southern Italy and then picked by hand, at specific harvest time.
Chinotto is a type of carbonated soft drink produced from the juice of the fruit of the myrtle-leaved orange tree (Citrus myrtifolia). The beverage is dark in color. Its appearance is similar to that of Coca-Cola, but it is not as sweet as Coca-Cola, having rather a bittersweet taste. According to legend, Sanpellegrino created Chinotto in 1932.
