Hotel Starlino in inspired by the architecture of our Distillery - Torino Distillati -
located just outside of Turin - the birthplace of Aperitivo.
Starlino's recipe was made by Denis Muni and Beppe Ronco - both have worked at Torino Distillati for over 20 years and are natives of the Piedmont Region. Having spent their careers making Vermouths and Aperitivos, they focused their attention on real innovation for The Hotel Starlino™ Range. They came up with the idea of ageing the Rosso Vermouth in Bourbon barrels after observing that the cask ageing imported a deliciously smooth, spicy flavor to the wine. For the Rosé and Arancione - they wanted to create a really fresh and natural flavor that mixed with tonic, soda, sparkling wine or was delicious on the rocks.
"The cherry in the seductive beverage is commonly looked upon as an added temptation for the one who imbibes."
- New York Times, 1906
Hotel Starlino cherries are exquisite all-natural Maraschino cherries matured for two weeks in their natural Marasca juice then rested for another week to achieve their peak flavor.
The result, a delicious luxury cherry that is delightfully sweet and savory.
