Mr. Quail & J.T is a range of pre-mixed cocktails from Antica Distilleria Quaglia in collaboration with the world famous Jerry Thomas Project, Rome. 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.
Using Antica Distilleria Quaglia’s traditional artisanal products, Mr. Quail & J.T’s cocktail range includes a classic Negroni, Amerciano, Vermouth Cocktail and Martinez, each finished with a light barrel ageing, bringing a softness and well-rounded finish to this exquisite line of products.
