Del Professore Classico Bianco Vermouth
Named after “Professor” Jerry Thomas, an iconic 19th century bartender and cocktail pioneer, Vermouth del Professore is produced by a collaboration between Federico Ricatto, the historic producer Carlos Quaglia and the passionate Jerry Thomas Speakeasy in Rome. Del Professore Vermouth is one of few made solely from wine and ingredients produced in-house. Quaglia insists that this ensures the intensity and authenticity of the aromas within the vermouth, as they oversee the whole process from grape and herbs to the finished product.
The Bianco Classico Vermouth is made from a Moscato-based wine from the Langhe, which is fortified with alcohol and aromatized with more than a dozen herbs and spices. The result is a golden, amber vermouth with distinct aromas and flavors, ranging from honey and chamomile to the flowering plant gentian and wormwood. At once smokey, spicy, earthy and herbal. The supple texture of the alcohol balances its heat, and underlying bitter aromas counter the sugars present. The result is a harmonious elixir that is both refreshing and complex.
