LKFA-3361. COCCHI VERMOUTH DE TORINO
'On the occasion of the 120th anniversary of the House of Cocchi, we have resumed production of Giulio Cocchi's original recipe Vermouth di Torino, previously produced in 1891.This Storico Vermouth di Torino adheres to a long if seldom followed tradition, notably in the selection of its fine wine Moscato of local origin, the botanic formulation and production in the historic Asti region, outside Torino. The flavor profile is unmistakably of Cocchi, with rich and vibrant notes of citrus, cocoa, rhubarb and a balanced bitter undertone. Vermouth di Torino stands apart as one of only two protected geographical indications of origin for vermouth (Chambery is the other one).'

LKFA-3367. CARPANO DRY VERMOUTH liter
Wine Enthusiast 94: 'New to the U.S. market, this dry vermouth smells fresh and fruity. It's well-structured, too: sweet at first, with fleeting pear and tropical fruit flavors, a trace of minerality on the finish and a faint bitterness. An excellent choice for martinis and other cocktails calling for dry vermouth, but unlike most dry vermouths, this one would be pleasing on its own, with ice and a twist of orange peel.'

Persistent and delightful, this vermouth is perfect for any occasion.'

Very easy drinking, especially with ice, and it's easy to imagine sipping this, well chilled, on a hot day. Highly Negroni-worthy.'
