Four varieties of bottled Negronis available to drink or takeout at Singapore cafe/bar Wildcard
November 17th, 2023
Bar Termini, London’s Rome-inspired café bar, has launched its bottled Negronis and new Il Diciotto amaro in Singapore, the first Asian market where they’re available. In 2014, the team behind Bar Termini set out to create the perfect bottled Negroni for their guests to enjoy at home. As a pioneer of bottled cocktails, the team innovated by cooking the liquid sous vide at a low temperature, creating a result that is almost identical to a bottle-aged cocktail. Each of the Negronis is bottled at sipping strength, giving the advantage of a perfectly balanced cocktail poured with speed and ease.
With four varieties available in Singapore, each of the bottled Negronis seamlessly blends complex bitter and sweet notes with a hint of citrus fruits and botanicals. Negroni Classico (S$92 / 750ml) is the quintessential aged Negroni, a traditional blend of London dry gin, Italian vermouth and Campari for the perfect aperitivo. The Negroni Superiore (S$92 / 750ml), builds on the Classico with an infusion of pink peppercorns for a subtly spicy and aromatic finish. For a delicately floral twist, the Negroni Rosato (S$92 / 750ml) infuses dried pink rose petals into the traditional recipe. Negroni Robusto (S$98 / 750ml) sees an extended ageing period beyond the Classico for depth and a more robust flavour.
A modern take on the traditional Italian Amaro, Il Diciotto (S$40 / 500ml) is handcrafted in London with 18 carefully chosen natural botanicals including citrus fruits, flowers, herbs, and roots. Hailing from Bergamo, Italy, founder Alessandro Belometti gained an appreciation for the complex and nuanced flavours of amaro and set out to create his own version which first launched as the house amaro at Bar Termini. Whether enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or in a cocktail, Il Diciotto is versatile and suitable for any occasion.
Wildcard offers a similar vibe to Bar Termini, where you can enjoy an espresso first thing, a coffee mid-morning, an afternoon aperitivo, or an evening nightcap.
Wildcard is open Wednesday through Friday, 8 am – 11 pm; Saturdays 9 am – 11 pm; and Sundays, 9 am – 6 pm.
