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.
Carpano Dry has its origins in a traditional recipe enriched with the experience of Distillerie Branca through their choice and use of raw materials, their respect and regard for tradition through innovation and with the contribution of Luca Gardini, many times World Sommelier champion. Featuring a selection of ingredients, including Dittany of Crete, this vermouth has a well-structured flavour profile with plenty of spice, refreshing herbs, citrus and orchard fruit.
