Can't quite nail the perfectly balanced cocktail?
Frustrated that your cocktails never taste as good as they do at the bar?
Curious to know the secret formula behind the perfect Italian aperitivo?
It's time to let you in on a little secret...
...The perfect cocktail requires quality ingredients... duh.
Before working in digital marketing, I worked as a cocktail bartender for over 7 years and had TOO much time to experiment with a huge back-bar of spirits... and just as I began to understand the key components to the perfect cocktail, I was approached by the CUCIELO Vermouth di Torino brand and just
fell.. in.. love.
I get it, you don't know me from Adam and it's always tough for me to translate the love for a brand to a total stranger, but I have had the same struggles as you. Intimidated by the huge number of bottles at the spirits shop, not comfortable trusting opinions when there are SO many paid advertisements forcing their products down your throat
So... I've made it easy for you. I've boiled the CUCIELO brand down to 5 simple points with one goal in mind - giving you an opportunity for you to experience a quality product for a very reasonable price.

 1. our awards

Whilst CUCIELO aren't ones for chasing medals or awards, it's always nice to be recognised for the hard-work that goes into creating this fabulous vermouth. Rather than ramble on about our shiny gold awards, I thought I would attach them below. Ta-da.

 2. the di torino appellation

Whilst literally anyone can make vermouth at home, not everyone can make di Torino vermouth. There loads of rules (governed by EU law) that you must follow to brand your vermouth as a 'di Torino'. The simplest way I can help explain it is this - it's like comparing sparkling wine to champagne, or brandy to cognac.


I like to think of it as being the best quality of vermouth that Italy has to offer.



3. sustainability


Making sustainable choices plays a big factor in my life, I'm sure you're the same. That's why CUCIELO do their part to help bring a clean conscience with each and every purchase. From fully recyclable, plastic-free packaging to pretty bottle labels made from a renewable cotton source.



4. no nasty ingredients


When shopping for new spirits, I usually look for one thing - a natural product, free from nasty colourings or flavourings. I  actually remember visiting their distillery earlier this year and I was totally blown away. Boxes stacked high FULL of fresh botanicals, with each box stating the origins of each herb and spice. From start to finish, the production truly is a raw, natural process



5. the negroni fans love it


I know I know... it's the reason you're here and don't worry... It's perfect balance and flavour profile creates an absolutely perfect negroniLike I said earlier, this is about giving you an opportunity to experience a truly fantastic Vermouth di Torino. This is reflected in not only the awards won, but in the consumer reviews too.


join the journey...

I hope that was pretty convincing. Join the CUCIELO journey and give it a try for yourself in 2022. Salute!
