Italian distiller, Antonio Benedetto Carpano documented the first vermouth recipe in 1786. While similar herb and spice infused, wines were enjoyed as early as ancient Rome, Carpano was the first to record a reliable, replicable method. He put the vermouth on sale in his Turin bar. From there, its fame grew and today, Carpano has become one of the most revered Italian Spirits.

Carpano Dry is the newest vermouth innovation form the legendary maker. Distilled with the attention to quality and craftsmanship that characterizes the Carpano brand, the drier taste is achieved thanks to a lower sugar content compared to other types of vermouth. This new marque from the house of Carpano is bound to intrigue when served on its own or mixed in a variety of classic cocktails.

Carpano Bianco is a new vermouth that takes its inspiration from its illustrious history but turns to new sources in the sunnier climates of Sicily and Romagna for its wine. The brand’s secret recipe, while true to its founder’s vision, produces a sumptuous spirit that represents an exciting new step in the evolution of vermouth. The result is perfect for today’s adventuresome consumers.
