Vermouth Rosso del Professore
Vermouth del Professore is produced by collaboration between Federico Ricatto, Carlos Quaglia and the Jerry Thomas Speakeasy in Rome. Jerry Thomas was a pioneering American 19th century bartender, considered to be the original mixologist and nicknamed “The Professor” and this vermouth is a homage to him.
The Jerry Thomas Project is no ordinary producer, it is better known as Rome’s best speakeasy cocktail bar. Its recent partnership with Antica Distilleria Quaglia in a bid to start producing spirits as well as serving them, is a breath of fresh air. The Project is not just a tribute to the ‘father of American mixology’ Jeremiah Thomas, it is also a rediscovery of forgotten Italian spirits, a celebration of prohibition drinks with an Italian twist and an advocate for high quality products made with high quality raw Italian ingredients.
