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 utilizing 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 % 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!
