Founded in 1876 in Turin, Chazalettes & Co.was the official supplier to the House of Savoy, and still bears its coat of arms. While it ceased production in the 1970s, Chazalettes & Co. was revived in 2017 through a partnership between the Bava family and the last heir of the Chazalettes family.
Chazalettes & Co. Vermouth di Torino Rosso
Sticky sweetness leads, with glacé and maraschino cherries, and plums jumping from the glass. But there is a dark bitterness close behind, with woody wormwood bitterness joined by green leaves. Between the two sits a pool of bittersweet spice.
Red-wine based Vermouth di Torino produced according to the authentic recipe of Clemente Chazalettes, which dates back to 1876. Alongside the distinctive wormwood, you may find notes of Piedmontese herbs, marjoram and musk mallow as well as exotic sandalwood and coriander. This Vermouth is named after Queen Margherita who, in 1907, granted to Chazalettes the royal patent and the use of the House of Savoy coat of arms. Della Regina translates from Italian as: ‘of the Queen’.
