What is Martini
Essentially, martini is a trademark. The company produces medium-strength flavored fortified wines with the addition of wormwood, spices and other components that give the drinks an original rich taste. Naturally, the complete recipe is classified and only the main ingredients such as alcohol, water, sugar and a few flavors are known to the general public.
Martini gets its name from the name of the creator of the recipe. The first appearance of the drink on the market took place in 1863, when a distillery organized by Alessandro Martini and Luigi Rossi produced samples of the new vermouth. Just 16 years later, the partners opened a factory and registered the Martini & Rossi trademark, which quickly gained fame in Italy. Vermouths of the Cinzano brand were and still remain their constant rivals in the alcoholic beverages market.
Manufacturers have created several recipes with different flavors.
Interesting: Each type of martini has very strict tolerances for sugar content and flavor level.
