Mancino Vermouth was born in 2011 in small family-run distillery in Asti, Piedmont. The distillery, established over 60 years ago in 1957, inspired Giancarlo Mancino, owner of the brand, to compose his own vermouth using only the finest hand-picked spices and botanicals.
He dreamt of bringing back vermouth made in an authentic, classic style, as it would have tasted back in the 1900s. A vermouth to be enjoyed equally on its own and as the perfect companion in cocktails – not fading into the background of a drink, but instead creating a symphony of flavours when mixed with other quality spirits and ingredients.
Following the traditions of the original vermouth makers, Giancarlo set out to revive the intricate flavours of the past, creating three distinct recipes from a selection of forty types of botanicals, infused only with quality Italian wine. Trebbiano di Romagna was the perfect choice of wine for the Mancino Vermouth di Torino Secco, Bianco and Rosso, as well as for the 12-month barrel-aged Mancino Vecchio. For the richness of Mancino Chinato, Giancarlo selected Barbera D’Asti for its added depth and complexity.
The two latest additions to the Mancino family are Sakura – inspired by the springtime cherry blossoms of Japan – and Kopi, an exceptionally rich coffee vermouth.
From the moment you pick up the bottle, its classic look and feel, together with the bittersweet concoctions awaiting inside, impress upon you the timeless character that make Mancino Vermouth an integral part of the world’s finest cocktail bars.
