Born in the small town of Moncalieri in Italy’s Piedmont region, Cucielo Vermouth di Torino uses a combination of the finest Italian wines along with the perfect blend of naturally sourced botanicals and aromas. The brand takes inspiration from the migrating cuckoo. In the summer, the Cuckoo migrates from West Africa to Scotland. At the end of the summer months, the cuckoo returns home – flying the length of Italy – taking in the aromas of the Mediterranean before arriving back at the Congo basin. With Vermouth di Torino, they take botanicals naturally sourced from the route of the migrating cuckoo, with each bottle capturing the aromas of Italy and the Mediterranean.
Delicate aromas and flavours of orchard fruits, white flowers and chamomile typify this vermouth, as good to drink in a Martini or a Spritz as it is neat with a cheese platter. Green apples, elderflower, garden herbs, cherry and orange zest waft up on the nose, while to taste apples, vanilla and bitter herbs drive the flavour.
