Antica Torino Vermouth di Torino Rosso is a traditional vermouth recommended for mixing in old-fashioned and modern drinks.
Not containing juniper, angelica and other classic spices of gin, it combines very well with a classic London Dry Gin and works in great harmony with bourbon or rye whiskey giving sweet, warm and herbaceous tones: and also with brandy, since this is also wine-based, or with herbaceous liqueurs, and finally with traditional amaro liqueurs.
The Americano is one of the cocktails that best brings out the characteristics of this product either in the classic recipe with two parts vermouth and one of bitter, or one-to-one, as suggested by the famous Florentine barman Luca Picchi.
This vermouth is an excellent ingredient for other classic mixed drinks like 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.
