Martini is a brand of Italian vermouth, named after the Martini & Rossi Distilleria Nazionale di Spirito di Vino, in Turin.
Three Distilleria individuals, Alessandro Martini, Luigi Rossi and Teofilo Sola, changed the company name to Martini, Sola & Cia in 1863 and it was in 1879 that the Sola family sold its interests to the remaining partners who renamed the company Martini & Rossi, as it stands today.
Because the origins of the martini (a mix of vermouth and gin) are uncertain, some speculate that this brand could possibly be one of the origins.
