Vermouth was first produced in 1786 by the distiller Antonio Benedetto Carpano in Turin, in the region of Piedmont. Wormwood (Artemisia Absinthium) is the main plant used in all vermouth recipes, which include wine, sugar, and alcoholic infusions of herbs and spices.
Wormwood has been used since ancient times to flavour wine. For example, it is said that Cicero used to use “Vinum Ellenicum Absinthiatum” as a welcome drink for his guests. This was a wine that came from Greece, which was flavoured with wormwood and a few other plants.
Our vermouth takes its inspiration from the Piedmontese tradition; its evocative name is inspired by antiquity, but naturally, the distillery’s recipe books have contributed a lot to it.
