The original MARTINI, and our first love. When Luigi Rossi blended local botanicals to craft this scarlet-hued vermouth, he created an indisputable icon. While the exact recipe remains a closely guarded secret, this sweet vermouth’s intensely herbal character is the result of blending carefully chosen wines with a complex selection of Italian herbs, including sage, savory and dittany, and bitter-sweet exotic woods.
Conceived in the 1970s to refresh Luigi Rossi’s original recipe, this sparkling long drink is garnished with orange to lift its orange notes. Bitter-sweet and harmonious, the highly perfumed and herbal character of MARTINI Rosso is enhanced with plenty of ice and a 50/50 ratio of vermouth and tonic water, to create an intense, flavourful cocktail.
The aromatic and herbal notes of MARTINI Rosso & Tonic balance perfectly with rich, salted nibbles. For a quick aperitif, pair it with a simple bowl of olives or salted almonds, or for something more substantial, try a cheese and charcuterie board with salami, cured hams and Pecorino cheese.
