Liqueur & Spirits

The first Contratto Vermouth recipes date back to the 1890s when herbs and spices were used to cover “off tastes” or oxidized wines. At that time nobody dared to throw away wine and the herbal infusion would cover any unpleasant tastes.

 

Today, with the revival of classic spirits and a booming cocktail culture, Contratto is reintroducing four historic products that embrace old tradition and modern demand, Contratto Vermouth Bianco, Vermouth Rosso, Americano Rosso and Fernet. Using Cortese as the base for the Verouths and Amricano, an indigenous white grape variety,the wine is being infused with 30 to 50 organic premium natural herbs, spices, roots and seeds and then fortified with Italian brandy. This traditional process, based on cold maceration is used to create a sophisticated elixir that is complex, fresh, exciting and well balanced between Asian medicinal herbs, Italian spices and crisp and bitter citrus fruit.

For more than 300 years, before the days of Admiral Nelson, wooden ships and iron men, the sailors of Britain’s Royal Navy were issued a daily ration of rum by the ship’s ‘Purser’. This tradition, one of the longest and un-broken in the history of the sea, carried forward from the year 1655 to August 1st 1970.

 

The superb rum in this bottle is the same rum that was standard issue aboard their Majesties’ ships at the time of the custom’s termination in 1970. For centuries, British Navy Jack Tars drank their Pusser’s Rum and appreciated this spirit’s exceptional quality. Its distinct character is still created from a blend of six of the world’s finest Caribbean rums which were discovered on their excursions at sea.
