The Vesper cocktail was created by Ian Flemming, the author of the James Bond novels, and recently featured in the Bond film “Casino Royale”. James, at a difficult point in an important poker game, orders his own recipe… “A Martini. Wait… 3 measures of Gordon’s gin, 1 of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it over ice and then add a thin slice of lemon peel.”
Nowadays Kina Lillet is no longer produced, but Cocchi Americano is widely considered to most closely match the flavour of the old aperitif. With the flavoursome Vestal Vodka, you’ll have a very different experience to James’ drink.
