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.


  • 1 oz Victoria Gin
  • 1/2 oz Campari
