Giulio Cocchi’s original recipe Americano is more that just a simple aperitif in the town of Asti – in fact, it is the aperitif by definition, a piece of this century’s local cultural and gastronomic history. This is the original Americano, produced without a break since 1891 according to an entirely natural recipe: white wine aromatized with many herbs and spices, no artificial colouring, flavouring or additive of any kind. It is produced in limited quantities and matured for a year before being put on sale. The new bottle in that form of the classic clear glass Bordeaux shape is designed to be show the aperitif’s natural origins as a wine, quite different to other inventive aperitifs based on alcohol. Serve chilled in a tumbler or in an appropriate glass with a twist of orange peel and if desired, ice cubes. A splash or soda is indispensable to make the full aroma and perfume come out at their best. This is the classic way to serve it, as preferred by the “purists” who have known this drink for ever. The Americano’s natural refreshing qualities remain even when diluted as a long drink; it’s an excellent thirst quencher. The addition of soda (or sparkling mineral ware) even brings it into the “low alcohol drink” category. A natural House Aperitif in bars because of the easy-to-like taste, the low alcohol level, and a natural facility as a mixer with other good ingredients.

Details: Dimmi is a wheat distillate spirit that undergoes two infusions. The first includes licorice, orange peel, rhubarb, ginseng, and vanilla. The second infusion is more floral, with peach and apricot blossoms rounding out the blend and adding to the aromatics. After both infusions are added to the alcohol, Nebbiolo-based grappa is poured into the mixture. Then comes the beet sugar for sweetness.
Notes: Delightful flavors of caramelized oranges, anise, and vanilla. It’s really delicious poured over ice, but this is a spirit would also be interesting in a variety of cocktails.
