Italian Vermouth brand Cucielo has expanded its collection with the launch of a Dry Vermouth di Torino that has been crafted to capture the essence of ‘Golden Hour’ and Italian Aperitivo Culture.
With crisp notes of fresh Sicilian citrus, complemented by a light yet herbal bitterness, the brand’s Dry Vermouth di Torino has been designed to highlight the most iconic of aperitif cocktails, the Martini.
“It’s a really exciting time in the history of Vermouth as the rise of aperitif drinks globally has opened up the category to a new generation of drinkers who are not only enjoying vermouth in amazing cocktails but also as the hero ingredient in a spritz or simple serve,” said brand founder Andy Holmes. “We’re also seeing new levels of excitement in vermouth amongst bartenders, who are embracing the spirit’s complexity which is often compared to that of a perfume.
“Cucielo Dry is a homage to aperitivo culture – from the selection of botanicals through to the label design which is inspired by the iconic golden hour. Authenticity and originality sit at the heart of our products and our dry expression follows the revered techniques that led to Vermouth Di Torino becoming recognised in EU law in 2017 as a DOC appellation for its quality and provenance”.
With its unique “Ricetta Originale”, CUCIELO Dry’s all-natural botanical formula, includes pontica & gentle artemisia, Aloe Ferox, bitter & sweet orange peel from Calabria, elderflower, dried Sicilian lemon peel & cardamom amongst a number of other natural, secret ingredients.
Hailing from Italy’s Piedmont region, which was the birthplace of both Vermouth and Aperitivo culture, the expression is a versatile, natural vermouth, with enough character to work simply mixed with premium tonic or on its own, served chilled, over ice with a garnish of orange wedge. Bottled at 18% ABV, Cucielo Dry Vermouth is available today across Europe, Asia and Africa
