Berto is the story of a distillery in Piedmont representing the classic vermouths of the region. At the time of its purchase in 1906, Carlo Quaglia was its owner, whose great-grandson now directs the distillery. The recipes of the classic sweet vermouths, the blanc and rosso, have been passed down over the years from one generation to the next, each son enhancing Berto’s recipe with their own vision. Bèrto comes from the nicknamed nephew of the chef who resurrected and recreated the Quaglia recipe back in the 1930s. These are vermouths that can stand on their own, but serve well as an inclusion in cocktails.
Not recommended for use in a martini; this style is lightly sweet! We like this one served with a splash of club soda or on its own, either preparation served over ice with an orange peel. Ideal as an aperitivo.
