Launched in September 2010, Martini Gold vermouth was developed by Martini in partnership with Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbana and their Milan-based Italian fashion house. Due to lack of sales production ended some 18 months after its launch.
Martini's Master Herbalist, Ivano Tonutti and Master Blenders, Luciano Boero and Beppe Musso, started work on this new vermouth in April 2009 and presented various different styles of vermouth to Dolce & Gabbana. This dry, spicy vermouth was preferred by the fashionistas.

Martini Gold used bergamot from Calabria, lemons and oranges from Sicily, Spanish saffron, myrrh from Ethiopia, Indian ginger, and cubeb pepper from Indonesia. This Dolce & Gabbana-branded vermouth comes in a suitably flamboyant gold bottle which is presented in a black case, inspired by Dolce & Gabbana's black and gold corporate colours and logo.

Fruity, apricot bitter-sweet finish sees the spicy elements, particularly sweet pepper notes linger.
