The headquarters of Fratelli Branca is located in Milan, Italy, but they also produce some of their liqueur and vermouth in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Branca are perhaps most famous for their spectacularly intense digestif liqueur, Fernet Branca, which dates all the way back to 1845, when it was created by Bernardino Branca in Milan. It has grown incredibly popular over years, particularly in Argentina and San Francisco, where it is often served neat alongside ginger ale. Fernet Branca even made an appearance in The Dark Knight Rises, being enjoyed by Alfred Pennyworth! Nowadays, Branca also produce the Carpano brand of vermouth, including the rather wonderful Punt e Mes.
A truly exceptional product, considered a unique vermouth by professional barmen and the essential ingredient for creating the perfect cocktail. Carpano Classico is based on the original vermouth recipe invented by Antonio Benedetto Carpano.
Classico is a toned-down version of Antica Formula. Great chilled on its own or as a mixer in long drinks or cocktails, this is a robust, versatile vermouth with plenty of citrus and vanilla.
