Carpano Dry is a clear coloured Vermouth, yet vibrant and bright like platinum. And just like platinum, Carpano Dry maintains its characteristics over time, thanks to the distinctive ingredients in its recipe and the quality of the Fratelli Branca Distillerie production processes.

Its aroma is characterised by a balanced and well-structured, yet not overwhelming richness of scents: candied fruit, spices, coriander, incense, lemon essential oil.It is the "winey", slightly acidic taste of the Vermouth that comes through initially, followed by an interesting fresh, balsmic note which lingers as an aftertaste: citrus fruits and green apple.

18% ABV / 36 Proof.

Product Details

Carpano Dry has its origins in a traditional recipe enriched with the experience of Distillerie Branca through their choice and use of raw materials, their respect and regard for tradition through innovation and with the contribution of Luca Gardini, many times World Sommelier champion.

“Carpano Dry” is the name of the new Carpano Vermouth. It has a drier taste and a lower sugar content than the other vermouths. The product has its origins in the history of Carpano, enriched with the experience of the Branca brand in the choice and use of the raw materials.

Among the officinalis plants, the wormwood used in the Carpano products is grown in Italy and gathered in unpolluted mountainous areas making it more expensive due to the difficulty in to procuring it and its popularity among producers.

About the Producer

The story of Don Julio tequila begins in 1942 when a 17-year-old Don Julio González went into the tequila-making business with the help of a loan from a local businessman. In 1957, La Primavera Distillery was built in the Highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. Today, Don Julio tequila is still handcrafted at that very same distillery from 100% blue Weber agaves that grow for 7 to 10 years before the piñas are harvested by the jimadores.

After sharing his vision with a local businessman, he's granted a loan to start his first tequila distillery, La Primavera, in the Jaliscan Highlands.

For the next forty years, Don Julio González would devote his life to making the world's finest tequila. Each day he'd wake up early to walk along the agave fields, cutting the grass around each individual plant to protect it. With a coa in hand, he'd carve flavor from every piña, expertly balancing the bitter and sweet leaves of each agave. And when it came time to harvest, he'd harvest each plant one by one, picking only the agaves at optimum maturity and health.

Sitting 6500 feet above sea level, the highlands of Jalisco is where it all began. It's in this extreme climate, surrounded by rich volcanic soil, where the legendary distillery of La Primavera was founded and Don Julio Tequila was born.

The Jaliscan Highland's warm days, cool nights, and rich clay soil create the perfect microclimate for the cultivation of blue agave. However, its high altitudes make it difficult and physically demanding to farm and harvest crops. Don Julio González knew this but stayed in the highlands, and endured the extreme conditions so he could create the world's finest tequila. His devotion to his craft truly knew no limits. The result? A tequila with exceptional substance and indisputable spirit.

Since 1947, over three generations of the Jimador families have worked with Don Julio. Their devotion to Don Julio's process and methods is unmatched and their mastery in planting, farming and harvesting agave have been passed on for generations and can be traced back to Don Julio himself.

Instead of harvesting entire agave fields at once, our Jimadors painstakingly harvest plant by plant, expertedly assessing the age and health of every agave. To increase the quality of their harvest, they handpick and uniformly handcut the agave pencas (leaves) from the piña. Without the devotion and care of our legendary Jimadors, our tequila's exceptional quality wouldn't be possible.
