The luxurious amber colour of the Vermouth Classico Tradizionale is reminiscent of Marsala and the aromas on the nose fluctuate between hints of the liquorice and bitterness in absinthe, dried straw, mahogany and tea infusions. The medicinal quality in the flavour of the alcohol and its continual underlying bitterness manages to keep in balance with the refreshing flavours of herbs and spices, and is complemented by sweeter notes of ginger and citrus peel, making the Vermouth both slightly bitter and slightly sweet.

These flow into a pleasantly bitter aftertaste balanced by sweeter rhubarb and gentian notes with muscovado sugar, and a light tannic structure from the refinement in oak.

Dark mahogany in colour, the Coffee brandy combines the chocolatey aromas and flavours of the unusual mix of coffee and those of the wine distillate. The aromas and flavours are a delicious marriage of sweetness and bitterness with a mixtures of toffee, warm spices, roasted coffee and coconut milk.
A vodka for gin-lovers, and a gin for vodka-lovers.
