More bitter than most red Italian vermouths, Punt e Mes's name, translated as 'point and a half' refers to the flavour profile – one point of bitterness and a half of sweetness. Originally created by combining sweet red vermouth with bitter amaro, it is now a key cocktail ingredient, with more weight and bitterness than other sweet vermouths.
