Antica Formula Carpano Vermouth

100cl | 16.5% ABV | Italy

A full on, outrageously delicious sweet vermouth, laden with deep red wine tones accentuated by vanilla. Fantastic to use in the likes of a Martinez or a Negroni.

Antica Formula stands out thanks to its unique bouquet and its unmistakable notes of vanilla. There's also bitter orange and dried fruit on the finish which builds into spices such as saffron and cocoa.

"The first vermouth I fell in love with, I think it works wonders in a negroni with a bourbon aged gin and in my opinion the best vermouth for a classic Rye based Boulevardier, the winter spice and rich cherry notes are just wonderful."

About this product

Both hot infusion and / or cold extraction methods handed down through the centuries are used depending on the raw material. These methods, along with the recipe itself, constitute the secret to its flavour.

Antica Formula dates from the late 1780s and was rediscovered and recreated in 2001, when Count Niccolò Branca found a recipe for the vermouth, which he believes to be the original, or one of the original Benedetto Carpano recipes.

Carpano is made in the Piedmont region of Italy, the base wines are sourced from Romagna, Puglia and Sicily.

"I’ve always thought of Punt E Mes as a very grown-up vermouth, it’s a big bitter beast, almost chewy, it’s the dive bar of Vermouths."
