Peroni Nastro Azzurro is the world’s number one premium Italian lager.  Created during the early 1960s, it is recognized for its crisp and refreshing tasting notes, and continues to be brewed using the same quality ingredients and recipe since its inception.

The brewery, Birra Peroni, was founded more than 150 years ago by Francesco Peroni.  Peroni Nastro Azzurro was created by family member, Carlo Peroni, who on his travels abroad, developed a taste for delicious premium beer.   He realized that Italy was ready for a premium beer and consequently developed the original recipe with the Peroni Brew Master at the time.


Peroni Nastro Azzurro continues to be brewed in Italy, at the Peroni breweries located in Rome, Bari and Padua.  Peroni’s brew master is Roberto Cavalli, not to be confused with the iconic fashion designer.  He resides in Rome and controls the production of Peroni Nastro Azzurro, ensuring the quality and authenticity of the brewing and serving of Peroni Nastro Azzurro.

A perfumy noble hop aroma will be apparent upon smelling Peroni Nastro Azzurro, followed by a hit of floral.  Overall, the taste is exceptionally crisp and clean; balanced malt and bitterness flavour.  It has a smooth balanced flavour; refreshingly hoppy character; distinctive and full-bodied taste.  This is the fashionista's beer in Italy.


I tried it for the first time tonight and very much enjoyed it! Light tasting but not light on flavor, no after taste.

Will definitely order again!
