Tasting Notes

Created by the brains behind the Archivio bar in Verona and produced by one of Italy's old prolific distilleries, this incredibly versatile vermouth strikes the right balance (easier said than done) between the bitter, sweet, fresh and savory in every pour. Very drinkable on its own as well as always hitting its mark in your mixed drinks. Aside from the requisite local wormwood,additional botanicals include gentian, fresh thyme, sage, knapwood, chamomile, licorice root and vanilla.

Staff Pick Notes

This is made way up in the north of Italy, but its heart really lies down on the Mediterranean coast with the Spanish vermouths. Made specially for the legendary Archivio bar in Verona, Volume Primo finds the perfect balance: neither too sweet nor pushing the limits of bitterness. While it makes a killer negroni, I like to have it with just soda water, dropping in an olive or orange slice for garnish. The base wine has Moscato d'Asti for fruit and floral and Sicilian Grillo for brightness and acid. It’s made at Antica Distilleria Quaglia in Piemonte and the botanicals come from the distillery's own fields in the hills of Asti. Thyme, sage, knapwood, chamomile, licorice root, and vanilla come together with the classic wormwood and gentian for an intensely flavored style.
