Carpano Antica Formula Vermouth
The recipe for this sweet vermouth was developed in 1786 by Antonio Benedetto Carpano in his wine shop in Turin, Italy. It is made using white wine from selected Italian grape varieties as the base. Only three people today know the exact recipe, but three known botanicals are vanilla beans from Madagascar, Papua new Guinea and Tahiti; saffron mainly from Iran; and wormwood from the Alps of Piedmont. Caramelized sugar is used to color the vermouth. Bottled at 16.5% ABV.
Chartreuse Green Liqueur
Green Chartreuse was first made in 1737 by Carthusian monks using a recipe for an elixir they were given in 1605. It is made from 130 plants and herbs which are crushed, macerated, and distilled in a manner which is today known in its entirety by two monks in France. Its green color is naturally derived. Bottled at 55% ABV, this is stronger and spicier than the Yellow version. An essential ingredient in a Last Word cocktail.
Chartreuse Yellow Liqueur
Yellow Chartreuse is milder and sweeter than the Green version. Introduced in 1838, this liqueur is made from 130 herbs, plants and flowers which were crushed, macerated, and distilled in a manner which is known its entirety by two monks today. All natural color with no preservatives added, its color is derived from maceration. Bottled at 80 proof.
