    Oscar.697 Rosso Vermouth (750ml)

    ITALY
    $39. 99 Bottle
    $479.88 Dozen
    ABV: 16%
    Produced in Canelli, in the province of Asti in the Piedmont region in Italy’s north-west, this fairly new Vermouth brand is the brainchild of three drinks experts: Stefano di Dio, Oscar Quagliarini (the brand’s namesake who created the recipe for the vermouth) and Oreste Sconfienza, a vermuttista who’s been making Italian vermouth since the late 1950s. Sleek contemporary packaging belies a traditional production method that follows the guidelines for Vermouth set out by the Italian authorities.

    Oscar.697 Rosso is described as having strong notes of absinthe, rhubarb and liquorice while cinchona, a botanical normally associated with rosso vermouths is absent. All the ingredients are natural with no colouring added. Try it in an Americanos or Manhattans.
