Antica Formula, Carpano Vermouth NV

RRP £30.95

Still made according to a recipe from 1786, this Piemontese rosso was among the world’s first, commercial vermouths. Rich, spicy and unctuous, it’s best savoured neat, over ice, or in whisky cocktails – it makes a particularly good Manhattan. Available in half bottles too, which is handy.
