Love Drinks is delighted to announce the arrival of the Mancino (pronounced man-chino) range of Vermouths to its portfolio. The Mancino Vermouths are blended with the finest ingredients to make original, yet classic, recipes created by world renowned Italian bartender Giancarlo Mancino.
These recipes are made from a selection of up to forty botanicals personally selected by Giancarlo over four years of research. The botanicals are ground in a traditional mill that has been in use since the 1930’s then the extracts are steeped in sugar beet spirit before being added to a Trebbiano di Romagna wine base. After a week long filtration process, the liquid spends six months resting until the Vermouth is ready for bottling in small batches.
In 2011 Giancarlo started the steeping process in a small family run establishment in Piedmont, Northern Italy. The distillery is considered the birthplace of many exquisite wines and vermouths and has been in operation since 1957. There are three core Vermouths in the range, a Secco, Bianco Ambrato, the Rosso Amaranto, and rumour has it there’s a Vecchio (aged for 1 year) vermouth soon to be available in very small quantities.
The Secco is infused with 19 botanicals and looks clear, pale yellow with a hint of green. Breezy, clear and super dry it’s perfect for dry Martini.
Infused with 37 botanicals the Bianco Ambrato has an amber hue, ideal for a Vesper or on the rocks with a wedge of orange.
The Rosso Amaranto is made with 38 botanicals and is a dark Imperial Amaranth red. Perfect for a Negroni or sweet Manhattan.
