Products by Davide Campari-Milano S.p.A.:

Zad notes (February 2018) that Aperol uses food colourings that are tested on animals. Aperol (April 2018) denies this, which is correct from their perspective, because they don't do the tests themselves (they'd be done further up the supply chain.) We're leaving this as green to be more consistent with our sugar policy (a better analogy might be that we don't ask what pesticides are used in the growing of raw ingredients, which would also likely be tested.)

If you're concerned about animal testing, we recommend choosing products that have fewer/zero chemical additives.

Company email (January 2013):
"Below is information that our sole supplier in Italy provided regarding the ingredients of Aperol:

Aperol is a liqueur obtained from an infusion of selected herbs and roots (orange, rhubarb, china, gentian and many others) in a hydro-alcoholic solution (water+alcohol). The colour is mainly obtained from these ingredients used to produce it.

the colorants used for Aperol are not obtained from any animal, they are:
-Orange Yellow S, FD&C Yellow 6 or C.I. 15985
-Allura Red, Food Red 17, C.I. 16035, FD&C Red 40."
