Italian vermouth Mancino has collaborated with Barbera Caffè to create Kopi, a new coffee vermouth made with Indonesian coffee beans.
Translating as “coffee” in Indonesian, Kopi blends three Italian white wines – Arneis, Trebbiano and Fiano – and 14 Robusta coffee beans, which have been hand selected in Java and dark roasted in Naples by coffeehouse Barbera Caffè.
The liquid is said to boast a creamy palate typical of barista-style coffee. The coffee itself has a “delicate and unusual flavour”, with “fragrant characteristics”, while the Mancino vermouth adds “luxury”.
According to its makers, the new 17% ABV vermouth, which has a content of 0.5% of coffee per 500ml bottle, recalls childhood memories in Italy related to the preparation of tiramisu, and combines them with the adventurous experiences of coffee in Asia.
Mancino Vermouth Kopi joins six other products in the Mancino Vermouth family: Secco, Bianco Ambrato,Rosso Amaranto, Vecchio and Sakura: The portfolio is distributed in the UK by Spirit Cartel.
