Carpano Antica Formula is made from the Carpano Distillery's "ancient formula" for (red) sweet vermouth. Carpano Antica Formula is sought after because of its heritage, packaging and refined taste. It is distinguished from other sweet vermouths by its hint of vanilla flavor and aroma.
Although technically a vermouth, Antica Formula can be consumed as an aperitif on the rocks, as a dessert wine, or as a premium substitute for sweet vermouth in Negronis, Manhattans, and other cocktails. Refrigerate once opened. (from the producer)
