Coming up on this week’s show vermouth takes center stage behind the bar. Not just in a supporting role, as a wingman in your favorite cocktails, but also as the star of the show, especially if you’re Spanish.
It’s kind of like the John C. Reilly of spirits – always playing a supporting role, rarely taking the lead. But if you’ve ever been to Spain or France, you know this is not the case. Peter Gugni is a Bartender in Chicago, as well as the Brand Ambassador for Fratelli Branca, and like a lot of spirits professionals, he enjoys the odd, the esoteric and the little-known.
