It's all down to people

Our Del Professore vermouth and spirits reflect the individual stories, dreams and commitment of the people behind them. Our products are the brainchild of a group of barmen friends, led by Leonardo Leuci, who set about looking for authentic ingredients with characteristics suited to their interpretation of the art of blending. 

“We wanted to create an ‘authentic’ vermouth made in the traditional manner, representing the style popular in the late 18th-early 19th centuries with superb quality raw materials. We met some of the best craftsmen, still capable of making these unique spirits that seemed to be disappeared, putting plenty of passion into the process”.

Our production ethics

The brainchild of a group of vermouth lovers was therefore brought to life by a true craftsman, with the right mindset and way of working, and the ability to revive forgotten recipes and create products reflecting an almost forgotten craft tradition. Craftsmanship is all about wisdom and patience, the antithesis of the current trend towards industrialization. It is about a whole community of people – growers, pickers, master distillers – each one contributing, through their own manual skills, to the integrity and quality of the end product. Our production ethics believes that direct contact – sometimes a real friendship – between all those involved in the production process is as important as the quality of the ingredients, or as the perfection of the recipe.
