Pronounced ‘kee-ner’, this bitter-aperitif containing quinine takes its name and flavour from the bark of the ‘China Calissaia’ (Chinaroot). This is blended with other herbs and aromatic essences, their aromas extracted by infusion with alcohol and distillation in an old English pot still.
Made by Martini & Rossi, China Martini was first created in 1887 and is traditionally served with two parts slightly sweetened lemon juice and a splash of soda.
