Of all of Piedmont's vermouth producers, Martini & Rossi have no doubt been the best at marketing their brand. The company has been involved in motor racing since the 1960s and they've also made many memorable advertising campaigns under their Terrazza Martini logo. Not an Italian invention, but it's still fair to say that James Bond's favorite drink—bearing the same name as the Pessione, Piedmont-based company—has also done much to raise the profile of vermouth since the 1950s and 60s. When in Turin.... 60 ml gin, 10 ml dry vermouth, Garnish: lemon zest or olive
