Antica Formula is a red vermouth made from an original recipe by Antonio Benedetto Carpano, the man credited with creating modern vermouth in Turin in 1786. Carpano originally developed vermouth by mixing herbs with a base wine and then sweetening it by adding spirit. His new drink proved so popular that soon his shop had to stay open 24 hours a day to satisfy demand.

Carpano had been inspired by a German aromatised wine and was a fan of German poetry. As a result, he named his new product after the German word for wormwood, wermut, which was frequently used to flavour wine at the time.

Antica Formula is richer and more complex than most red vermouths and will make an excellent Bronx, Manhattan or Negroni.

Tasting Notes

Rich and deep, with aromas of dark chocolate, dark berries, bitter cherries, almonds and marzipan. Big, rich and concentrated. Raisins, fruit crumble, bitter chocolate and coffee mingle with candied orange peel and spicy oak.

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
