OSCAR 697 is a unique brand focused on modernising a traditional Italian product. Four professionals, from four diverse fields came together and realised an idea. Under the direction of Stefano Di Dio, Oscar Quagliarini fine tuned the exclusive recipe N°697 used by Oreste Sconfienza to produce the Vermouth 697, which David Caon enveloped in the OSCAR.697 branding. The unique and exclusive recipe n°697 respects the Vermouth production guidelines set by the Italian authorities.
Bianco is a contemporary brand of vermouth, which looks to modernise the traditional Italian drink while still respecting its history and legacy. The Oscar.697 Rosso Vermouth features a dry flavour profile giving it plenty of character. Sleekly and stylishly presented, Oscar.697 lets the vermouth talk for itself.
