Vermouth Tasting – where it all begun – in Turin Italy

Vermouth Tasting – where it all begun – in Turin Italy

Vermouth tasting. Vermouth was created here in Torino. It truly is a superior elixir, based on Moscato Bianco(only Moscato can be used) It was introduced to the Duke of Savoy and became the drink of the royal court. I felt like I was in the Belle Époque era. I’m a HUGE fan of port wine and I’m so happy to discover another sweet drink, Vermouth di Torino. I found my “aperitif for anytime” this was so good and deserving of hug and a kiss. An aromatised fortified wine, vermouth has its roots in ancient civilisations who commonly infused botanicals in their wines. These include Artemisia wormwood, known by most people as absinthe, with alcohol content 21%!  I’m bringing home the ingredients to recreate the first cocktails ever made in history.
