The Negroni – equal parts Gin, Campari, and Sweet Vermouth – was allegedly created in 1919 in a bar in Florence where Count Camillo Negroni asked the bartender, Fosco Scarselli, to strengthen his usual Americano with gin instead of soda water. Fosco tossed in a twist of orange instead of lemon to differentiate it. And so a classic was born. Salute Cam! Salute Fosco!
Our revision of the classic kicks up the gin content a bit. Can you blame us?! It is fabulous with both Oaken and Victoria Gin. The Negroni is our Assistant Distiller, Dave Clark‘s personal fave.
