About our Americano
The Americano would first have been known as Milano-Torino and would have been created by Gaspare Campari at the end of 1860, taking inspiration from the two cities where the ingredients come from: Milan for the Campari and Turin for the red vermouth. Probably due to its great popularity with Americans during Prohibition, the cocktail changed its name around 1930. It is the ancestor of the popular Negroni and one of the best aperitifs possible when made with vermouth stored in the refrigerator. or freshly opened.
