$207.98 / case(6)
This is a bitter aperitif liqueur created following the “italian bitter of turin” recipe dating from the 1860s. It was originally produced in turin italy under the name torino gran classico. The recipe was purchased in 1925 by the small swiss distillery e. Luginbuhl and a version has been produced for mostly local consumption ever since. Gran classico was developed by reverting back to the original recipe; it is made from a maceration of 25 aromatic herbs and roots including wormwood gentian bitter orange peel rhubarb and hyssop. The maceration also creates a naturally attractive golden-amber color and no additional coloring is added. Gran classico bitter stands alone on ice or with seltzer water but has amazing range as a modifier for many recipes and spirits. It has offered the cocktailian culture a more complex non-red alternative bitter ingredient for the world-famous negroni.
