Our Story

Deliciously complex flavours for straightforward good times.

Through uplifting expressions of rhubarb, raspberry and other compelling ingredients, we’re blowing the dust off the famously chic aperitif experience and whisking it into the here and now.

Life’s For Living Not Overthinking.

Traditionally, the bittersweet aperitif is sipped before a formal meal. Ours is a more relaxed approach. Sommer wants you to unhunch your shoulders, unleash your smile and get in the mood for a fabulous time. No stiff upper lip required.

We take everything that’s wonderful about the bittersweet aperitif – complexity of method and ingredients, elegantly moreish flavours – and express it with our own lighthearted flourish. Why? Just because.

In fact our name Sommer literally means just because. Life’s for living not overthinking.



Recipe For Success.

Richard and Dan, our founding craftsmen, are long-time pals from Yorkshire. ‘Our shared passion for the bittersweet aperitif led us to create a range for people like us – people who are serious about high quality drinks, and who want to enjoy them with good friends.’
