In the Heart of Grasse: Crafting Monte Carlo Vermouth
In the heart of Grasse, the fragrance capital of the world, lies the essence of Monte Carlo Vermouth’s unique character. Here, master distiller Marie Anne Contamin, with over 20 years of experience in the flavour industry, crafts the signature essence of Monte Carlo Vermouth. Inspired by the elegance of Monaco and the rich botanical heritage of the region, our vermouth starts with the selection of hand-picked roses from the Monaco Rose Gardens, known for their unparalleled aroma and quality.
Our Bianco and Rosso vermouths are born from a meticulous process that honours the traditional while embracing innovation. The Moscato d’Asti and Nebbiolo d’Alba wines, known for their natural sweetness and subtle fruit notes, form the base of our vermouths. The addition of floral and citrus notes, including dashes of mimosa and a medley of Mediterranean citrus fruits, adds layers of complexity and brightness to the Bianco.
The production process involves advanced techniques like ultrasonic maceration and vacuum distillation, ensuring the preservation and enhancement of the delicate flavors. The final touch is the integration of iris and wormwood, adding depth and a hint of bitterness, characteristic of premium vermouth.
Every drop of Monte Carlo Vermouth is a testament to our commitment to quality and innovation. From the fragrant fields of Grasse to the historic winemaking region of Piedmont, our journey is one of passion, craftsmanship, and the pursuit of perfection.
