In 1963, the Peroni family had a vision to create a beer that would embody Italian values of quality and craftsmanship.
Brewed with the same flair and attention to detail through three generations of master brewers, Peroni Nastro Azzurro uses only the finest ingredients, including our exclusive Nostrano dell’Isola maize. This delivers a crisp and refreshing beer with a delicate balance of bitterness, citrus and spicy aromatic notes, combined with a fast and clean finish.
The small town of Bergamo in northern Italy is home to our Nostrano dell’Isola maize, exclusively produced for us. In the Lombardy region lies a fertile plain known locally as the ‘the island earth’ between the rivers Adda and Brembo, where the conditions are perfect for growing maize. This environment is created from the combination of an absence of frost, the climate and the soil, irrigated by freshly melted snow from the nearby Alps.
The citrus aroma is subtle, yet captivating. During production, we use the highest quality hops (Saaz-Saaz and Hallertau Magnum) that give the beer its distinctive yet balanced aroma which is light on the palate.
The combination of Nostrano dell’Isola maize, the finest hops and two-row spring-planted barley is the secret to our unique crisp and refreshing taste. Our special maize gives the beer its distinct clarity and light, golden colour reminiscent of prosecco.
