Italian vermouth Cocchi has developed its second edition in partnership with The Savoy

Head bartender at The Savoy’s American Bar, Maxime Schulte, and Elon Soddu, head bartender at its Beaufort Bar, have joined forces to create the ultimate vermouth for the Savoy Martini.

'Cocchi were the obvious partners as they have an excellent background as winemakers which is a core part to any vermouth,’ said Declan McGurk, head of bars at The Savoy.

The new vermouth is being described as an evolution of the original Savoy Dry created in 2014 by The Savoy’s head bartender at the time, Erik Lorincz. In this 2019 version the amount of base wine has been increased and more bergamot, citrus and Alpine herbs added, leading to a drier and more floral taste profile.

The vermouth has acquired GI status as a ‘Vermouth di Torino’ and a limited amount of bottles are for sale via The Whiskey Exchange.
