Punt E Mes Vermouth
$132.38 / case(6)
Punt e mes is a legend on its own. The story goes that back in 1870 a stockbroker caught up in a debate with a few colleagues at bottega carpano ordered a vermouth laced with half a dose of quina liqueur using a piedmont dialect expression: punt e mes (roughly translatable as one and a half). 16% abv later on this name with such a peculiar origin entered the common usage thanks to the weird habit of regular carpano customers to order punt e mes only with a gesture by using a raised thumb to mean a point and a mid-air straight horizontal hand movement to mean a half. When the waiter saw that he immediately knew the client wanted a punt e mes. Punt e mes has a golden orange color with topaz tones and aromas reminiscent of herbs with hints of quina toffee and cloves. Pleasantly soft in taste marked by captivating accents of zesty orange. Excellent served straight with orange peel perfect as a base for cocktails.
