Cocchi Vermouth di Torino

Cocchi Vermouth di Torino bottle

75cl, 16% ABV

Vermouth di Torino is a collective heritage of Piedmont, starting in the late XVIII century in the royal court of Savoia and spreading to the four corners of the world in the XX century.

Cocchi Vermouth di Torino is produced according to the original recipe of Giulio Cocchi, who founded this respected House in 1891. This vermouth belongs to the category of the sweet italian vermouths, produced using fine Moscato wine as its base, which is then infused with a secret recipe of local and exotic botanicals.

Cocchi Vermouth di Torino has been the protagonist of the recent rebirth of these top-of-the-range vermouths. Great barmen from all over the world became very familiar with this product, so that it is often shortened “Cocchi Torino”. Often winning international awards, it's been crowned "2020 Top Trending Vermouth" and "2020 Best Selling Vermouth" in the World's 100 Best Bars by leading trade publication Drinks International.

Delicious neat on the rocks with a small lemon zest, it is an essential ingredient for the creation of the most classic cocktails, from Negroni to Manhattan.

Tasting Notes

Nose

Singed oranges, candied peel, vanilla, and menthol-tinged dandelion and burdock, backed up by rich berry fruit, sour and bitter cherries with their stones, and overtones of delicate rose petals.

Palate

Full-flavoured and thick on the palate – perfectly balanced, bittersweet and mouthfilling. Fruity cherry and menthol notes mingle with stewed raspberries, orange peel, earthy liquorice and subtle savoury herbaceousness – touches of tarragon and bitter leaves.

Finish

Bold, long, and well-balanced, with fruit and herbal notes complementing and intermingling.

Comment

Remarkably complex and an obvious cut above most vermouths. It has the classic bittersweet character of the style, but enhanced by layers of fruity complexity and herbal bitterness. A rich and full-flavoured aperitif, and a cocktail ingredient that makes its presence known.
