CHAZALETTES & CO

About

Chazalettes & Co was established in Turin, Italy, in 1876, and is one of the historical vermouth producers in the Piedmont. They were globally recognized for their liqueurs and bitters as well; they are no longer made, but maybe in the future - who knows! However, it was their vermouth that was particularly appreciated by the Savoy dynasty, so much so that Queen Margherita of Savoia and Princess Laetitia of Savoy-Napoleon granted the right to bear the Royal House emblem, still visible on labels today.
