Martini & Rossi
Martini and Rossi Riserva Speciale Bitter Liqueur
Martini & Rossi Riserva Speciale Bitter Liqueur was inspired by the original 1872 recipe and is made with 100% natural ingredients. It is characterized by three rare botanicals (Saffron, Angostura and Columba), that deliver a unique richness and complexity to its taste profile through different dimensions of bitterness.
Martini & Rossi Riserva Speciale Bitter Liqueur is rested in the same Tino casks that are used for Riserva Speciale Vermouth di Torino extracts. Its unique complex bitter taste has been crafted to be the perfect complement to Vermouth Di Torino in the Martini & Rossi Negroni.
For a brand that so deeply honors tradition, heritage and multigenerational relationships with its suppliers, MARTINI ® is beyond thrilled to welcome in a new tradition: officially being able to call 100% of its Asti must wineries certified sustainable by Equalitas, the most comprehensive sustainability standard in Italian wine making. It’s a well-deserved milestone for MARTINI,® having pioneered the industry by establishing L’Osservatorio MARTINI ® (the MARTINI ® Observatory), a center dedicated to sustainable business practices, way back in 1987.
“We have worked closely with the same vinegrowing communities, cultivating the finest Moscato Bianco grapes in the same beautiful hills for generations; in fact for the last 150 years,” says Giorgio Castagnotti, director of the MARTINI ® production facility, “and we want to continue to do so for generations to come. It’s always made sense then for us to support our grape growers through our sustainability initiatives.”
The Equalitas standard for certification considers a number of factors pertaining to environmental sustainability—from biodiversity to carbon and water footprint—as well as economic sustainability and ethical business practices. The designation made toasting 150 years taste even sweeter for MARTINI ® Asti.
