This is where Paola Pressi, the mastermind of Il Reale came into play!
Roughly they produce 3000 bottles of white and 3000 red vermouth but only 1000 bottles of sloe gin, liqueur and their Bitter.

Following the royal recipes, Il Reale produces 3 vermouth types: the white one made with Cortese, the red one whose color comes from the burned sugar, with the addition of rhubarb, cloves and cinchona bark, and the riserva made with Nebbiolo wine, very similar to a Barolo chinato.
They are currently working at a Luigi Fassio's mint liqueur made with our locally registered Pancalieri mint that grows around Turin
And who wouldn't love such an elegant artisan bottle?
Come get to know Monica Buzio and Paola Pressi in person at the Turin Epicurean Capital talk shows on June 26-28 2019 at Teatro San Giuseppe in Via Doria 18, here in Turin!!
