The Negroni was conceived well before the invention of a Dry Gin, so Count Negroni would most likely made his cocktails from a barrel aged Gin distilled from wine spirit. To be true to its origins, this Barrel Aged Negroni uses a red wine from the Canberra region, distilled with juniper and more than a dozen other herbs. It is blended with vermouth and bitters and aged with heavily charred oak, to fuse and soften the complex spice flavours. It is best served on the rocks, with a dash of soda, a wedge of orange and a burnt stick of cinnamon.
