Del Professore is a brand established by the colourful creatives behind the Jerry Thomas Project. A project named after the ‘father of American mixology’ Jeremiah Thomas (1830-1885), who popularized cocktails and developed elaborate techniques for mixing them which incorporated a certain showmanship; a vital element of mixology even today. He was also the first person to ever to publish a book about cocktails ‘How to mix drinks’ in 1862, making him the inventor of the cocktail book and the formal cocktail recipe.
The Project is not just a tribute to Jerry Thomas however, it is also a rediscovery of forgotten Italian spirits, a celebration of prohibition drinks with an Italian twist and an advocate for high quality products made with high quality raw Italian ingredients. And thus the reason for the creation and evolution of Del Professore Vermouths & Spirits.
Through extensive research the Jerry Thomas boys created new recipes which are truly authentic, rich in history and the opitimy of artisanal excellence. Only the best quality, natural and seasonal ingredients are used and their products are crafted with the upmost care and precision.
We began by working with their stunning Vermouths but have since added their two extraordinary gins, Gin a’la Madame and Gin Monsieur, their exquisite Aperitivo and Bitter and a selection of their special releases. This is an incredibly unique producer and we are very excited to be representing the Del Professore in the UK.
