New extra dry vermouth from Cocchi

Our love for vermouth continues, even when it is white! Vermouth brand Cocchi have launched Cocchi Vermouth di Torino Extra Dry. So we, of course, had to try it. (Click here to read What is Vermouth)

This new expression celebrates Piedmont which is the birthplace of Italian vermouth. Using a “Ricetta Piemontese” (“Piedmontese Recipe”) with all the main ingredients coming, or with strong links to the region. The base wine used is made of quality, local Cortese grapes, the same used for Gavi DOCG and botanicals such as wormwood, angelica, coriander, cardamom, lemon peel and Menta di Pancalieri, a Piedmontese mint.

Just like the other vermouths in the range, Cocchi Extra Dry carries the “Vermouth di Torino” IGP.

We tried Cocchi Extra Dry over ice and with tonic, both so easy to sip on at the end of an evening. We will have to try it in some cocktails.
