Believed to be the first ever example of vermouth and credited with creating the word, Carpano is one of the world’s most recognisable and esteemed producers of this sweet, spicy drink. Carpano Biano Vermut offers a powerful hit of herbs and spices combined with a hint of vanilla and a rich, sweetness which creates an almost festive atmosphere. The richness is offset by the powerful spiciness, making this an enjoyable pre-dinner drink.
Combining the same classic ingredients for nearly 200 years, Angostura bitters are a key ingredient in many famous cocktails, often paired with gin and rum to great effect. Despite the name, its flavour is not bitter at all, with the strong aromatic flavour, powerful with gentian and spices. Many cocktails simply wouldn’t be the same without a dash or two of Angostura bitters and it’s the complex herbaceous nature of the product which allows it to offer additional depth and dimension to cocktails.
