Punt e Mes is a legend on its own. The story goes that back in 1870 a stock broker, caught up in a debate with a few colleagues at Bottega Carpano, ordered a vermouth laced with half a dose of quina liqueur using a Piedmont dialect expression: ”Punt e Mes” (roughly translatable as ”one and a half”). Later on, this name with such a peculiar origin entered the common usage thanks to the weird habit of regular Carpano customers to order Punt e Mes only with a gesture, by using a raised thumb to mean ”a point” and a mid-air straight horizontal hand movement to mean ”a half”. When the waiter saw that, he immediately knew the client wanted a Punt e Mes. Punt e Mes has a golden orange color with topaz tones and aromas reminiscent of herbs, with hints of quina, toffee and cloves. Pleasantly soft in taste, marked by captivating accents of zesty orange. Excellent served straight with orange peel, perfect as a base for cocktails.
