His Vermouths are a blends of spirits, sugar, spices and Barbera wine. Andrea made the recipe for the Chinato based on old family history and being the first one to sell it makes us very proud! After the success it had here in Sweden, Andrea made another traditional Italian Vermouth, perfect when making our beloved drink – Negroni.
Both are fruity and fresh with integrated spice and sweetness, the ABV is 18 % for both of them.

Barbera Grappa
Made from the skins of his ‘Ciapin’ barbera wine. Floral, fruity and aromatic with a long length. The ABV is 42%.

Nebbiolo Grappa
Made from the skins of his ‘Il Clown’ Nebbiolo wine. A lot of power with big structure. A higher ABV at 45 % leaving you with a balanced heat in the finish.
