Antica Torino Amaro della Sacra (35% abv)

Antica Torino is the brainchild and longtime passion project of Liguria-based wine/spirits huntsman Vittorio Zoppi and Umbrian wine maker Filippo Antonelli.  Vito’s love and eventual business venture began like many others, as a child, surrounded by the time honored tradition of the people and the place. Vittorio Zoppi and Filippo Antonelli founded the Antica Torino company to produce and rediscover traditional Piedmontese aromatized wines, liqueurs, and spirits; creating new recipes that are inspired by traditional ones. After formulating their flagship Antica Torino vermouth, the team turned their attention to creating a digestivo comprised of ingredients from both Piedmont and around the world. This unique amaro is the result of painstaking research into monastic traditions that focused on the cultivation of  herbs and plants for use in tinctures, teas, and of course, liqueurs.

Carpano ‘Antica Formula 1786’ Vermouth -1 litre

Produced in Italy since 1786 from a heavily guarded recipe, this is actually the first vermouth ever made. Crafted from Piedmont’s muscatel and rich wines from southern Italy, its distinctive taste and aroma come from carefully selected brewed mountain herbs. Drink it as an aperitif or digestif, or mix it in refined cocktails like the Negroni and the Americano. It won a Silver medal at the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Cocchi Americano Aperitivo Wine

Cocchi Americano, for its nature, represents the link between wine and liquors being a wine plus a small quantity of alcohol bittered (“amaricato”) by the infusion of precious herbs and spices: white wine, sugar, herbs and spices infusion in alcohol and in particular gentian flowers and leaves, Artemisia, Cinchona, bitter orange peel, elderflower and others.
To produce Cocchi Americano, white wine is aromatized with the extracts obtained through a cold infusion in alcohol, then refined for balancing the spices’ aromas and tastes.

Cocchi Storico Vermouth Di Torino

An intensely medicinal, beeswax and honey, burnt orange peel and caramel-scented vermouth here, at the more intense end of the spectrum to be sure. This is not a subtle mixing vermouth but the main show itself, with full, intensely sweet palate reeled in by bitterness. There’s a resemblance to malmsey madeira or sweet oloroso sherry, passing by tawny port, with unique celery seed, cinnamon, agave/tequila notes on the finish – a tour de bouche to be sure. This would mix nicely for those more smoky Manhattans, in fact anything with bourbon or rye, with a maraschino cherry to top it off. A vermouth that should be on hand in every liquor cabinet for the more sultry cocktails. Score – 90. (John Szabo, MS, winealign.com, Oct. 15, 2015)

Cocchi Vermouth Amaro (16% abv)

Cynar

Cynar (pronounced chinar) is a much loved italian bitter liqueur, named for the artichokes (Cynara Scolymus) that are the main flavouring ingredients. Great over ice or in cocktails – try switching it in for Campari in a Negroni for an interesting take on a classic drink.
