Punt E Mes - Aperitivo
Bold and bitter, this vermouth, from the same producer as Antica Formula, will kick up your Manhattan, Negroni or Boulevardier a notch. With aromas that include menthol, sweet anise, tart Morello cherries, and tobacco leaf this has all the character you could possibly want in a sweet vermouth. The bitterness builds from start to finish on the palate, starting with some sweet and spicy notes: figs, cinnamon, cherries, and earth. The wave crests with orange peel and pith, licorice root, and a hint of chinchona. It's here where Punt e Mes separates itself from its ilk. Try it in your next cocktail that calls for Antica and let the waves crash over your palate.
