Named after “Professor” Jerry Thomas, an iconic 19th century bartender and cocktail pioneer, Vermouth del Professore is produced by a collaboration between the gourmet Federico Ricatto, the historic producer Carlos Quaglia and the passionate Jerry Thomas Speakeasy in Rome. A traditionally crafted product inspired by an ancient Piedmont recipe, the ingredients are the perfect aperitif according to Italian style.
Del Professore Vermouth is one of few types of vermouth on the market made solely from wine and ingredients produced in-house. Quaglia insists that this ensures the intensity and authenticity of the aromas within the vermouth, as they oversee the whole process from grape and herbs to the finished product:
“I love preserving and enhancing the aromas, colours and flavours of the raw materials I work with, just as I love waiting patiently for them to mature naturally. I then wait for time and the seasons to pass to make every single batch unique”, says Carlo Quaglia, Distiller and liquor maker. Del Professore products include Vermouth, Gin, Aperitivo and Bitter.
