L.N. Mattei Cap Corse Rouge Quinquina
Among the most famous of French Quinquina, enjoyed for generations by visitors and residents of the Island of Corsica. It is composed of a variety of local and exotic spices, walnuts, and cinchona bark on a base of Corsican Muscat and Vermentinu mistelles. The result is an aperitif of tremendous depth with a wonderfully dry finish. Traditionally served neat or on ice with tonic or soda. It mixes well with rye whiskey, especially so in a Boulevardier. Since its creation in 1872 by Louis-Napoléon Mattei, Cap Corse Mattei is the oldest and best-known aperitif of Corsica. Still today family owned, and all macerations, aging and bottling are done in house.
