Martini & Rossi Extra Dry Vermouth made its debut on New Year’s Day in 1900 after ten years of being perfected. This exceptional vermouth went on to become an iconic Martini & Rossi® drink that dominated the century, the Dry Martini & Rossi cocktail. The Martini & Rossi and Tonic is always a welcome call at parties, receptions and social occasions. Martini & Rossi Extra Dry Vermouth captures the essence of dry vermouth through Florentine orris root. Wrestled from the ground after three long years of growth, then sun-dried and pressed, the root releases its unique violet-scented and tart aromatic oils, lending a recognizable taste to Martini & Rossi Extra Dry Vermouth. With its sharp citrus aromas and hint of raspberry, this is a classic of its kind and adds a playful flavor to a Martini cocktail.
