This started life in 2019 as the centennial Wessex version of the world famous cocktail originally created in 1919 for a Mr Camillo Negroni by Fosco Scarselli at Caffe Casoni, Florence.

Loved by such wonderful people as Ernest Hemingway, Orson Welles, Enzo Apicella and the late lamented Anthony Bourdain, this cocktail has had many variations in its constituent alcoholic content. 

The Wessex version finally saw the light of day in late 2019 - one hundred years after its creation in Italy and after hours of very messy tastings by our wonderful team of volunteers.

The latest edition contains equal measures of  Ramsbury gin from Wiltshire (40% abv), Bramley & Gage Sweet Vermouth from Gloucestershire (18% abv) and Campari (25% abv). 

It certainly helped make all the Lockdowns less boring and has obtained some excellent customer

reviews.

For the classic version as an aperitif drink with a large ice cube and a slither of orange. 

A new idea that is much loved in Manton (and other places) is adding Prosecco to make a wonderful and refreshing long drink

Wessex Negroni No 1

Took me back to my youth with the flavours of Campari and Vermouth. Too bitter for me when neat, but delicious with a mixer as a long drink.

Not for me

Found this had a bitter aftertaste that I didn’t appreciate. Preferred No.3.
