A classic Vermouth Rosso di Torino with 32 botanicals for the contemporary drink

Terroir: The distillery is ideally located in Piemonte on the way to the Maira valley, an area blessed with amazing botanicals where old traditions and values still dictate the work ethic.

Respect for mother nature and hand picked botanicals are core values to more than 130 years of distilling craftsmanship.

Originally from the Italian town of Monza, famous for its Formula One race course, Andrea Frigerio does not keep still. After moving to London and developing a taste for the local specialty gin and tonics, he set out to create his own distinctly Italian gin. Partnered with a historic distillery in Cuneo, he uses hand-picked wild mountain juniper and local, hand-foraged botanicals from the Maritime Alps to create his remarkably aromatic and expressive spirits. He also makes a vodka from a recipe using Piedmontese red potatoes that dates from the 1800s. ‘Family of Hounds’ honors his beloved rescued greyhounds, and Andrea invites all aficionados of fine craft spirits to share in his restless exploration and join in ‘drinking with the pack.’ 

Andrea Frigerio, Italian-born and living in London, wanted to create an artisanal vermouth to pair with his award-winning gins, so he joined forces again with the master distillers at Bordiga 1888 in Cuneo to create a traditional yet distinctive Italian vermouth rosso. 
  • The different botanical distillates and infusions are created separately in triple-distilled grain alcohol, then blended with wine and sugar

  • Many of the botanicals are hand-foraged, including marjoram, elderflower, sage, fennel, and mint
  • The orange peel comes from organic growers in Sicily 
  • Only 1,450 bottles produced
