Antica Torino Vermouth Rosso
ITALY (18% ABV) 750ml
Rather than seeking out the exotic, often imported botanicals that go into more modern styled gins and vermouth of Italy, Antica Torino takes a page out of the history books, a time when vermouth was created utilising what was readily available in the backyard.
The decision was made to produce a vermouth that was “of the garden,” packed with fresh rosemary, bay laurel, thyme, oregano, wormwood, gentian, rhubarb and more… As for the grapes, they troubleshot through different combinations, and tested both white and red varieties from Piedmont. They decided to go with white wines, including a small percentage of moscato (also of the region) for its floral elements. For color, burnt cane sugar was chosen rather than industrial caramel.
Delicious on its own or mixed into cocktails, Antica Torino Vermouth di Torino will be a wonderful addition to any home or professional bar! No colorants, clarifying agents, or artificial preservatives added.
This is a traditional vermouth recommended for mixing in old-fashioned and modern drinks. It combines very well with a classic London Dry Gin. It works in great harmony with bourbon or rye whiskey giving sweet, warm and herbaceous tones: and also with brandy.
It’s an excellent ingredient for other classic mixed drinks like the Americano, Martinez, Boulevardier, Negroni, Bronx, El Presidente, Hanky-Panky and Manhattan. The most immediate use is with ice, a sprig of rosemary and lemon or orange peel.
