Every drop of grape juice used in the production of MARTINI vermouth and sparkling wines, including MARTINI Fiero and the new MARTINI Non-Alcoholic Aperitivo range, is now sourced from wineries certified according to the standard set by Equalitas, the most comprehensive sustainability standard in Italian wine making.

With the sugarcane for BACARDÍ® rum and the 10 botanicals for BOMBAY SAPPHIRE® already 100% sustainable sourced, this news is another major step towards Bacardi achieving its 2025 goal of sourcing 100% of its key ingredients from sustainably certified suppliers.

Established 160 years ago next year, MARTINI has long pioneered doing the right thing for the environment. In 1987, L'Osservatorio MARTINI – the MARTINI Observatory – was established in Northern Italy as a center dedicated to promoting sustainable farming methods, first for its wines and, more recently, the many botanical ingredients used to craft its iconic vermouths and non-alcoholic aperitivo range.

“It takes a lot of years and a lot of dedication to achieve a milestone like this one,” says MARTINI Master Blender Beppe Musso. “For generations, we have cared for the environment, for our suppliers and for their communities. This certification by Equalitas recognizes the value of those relationships and the value of pioneering sustainable practices.”

Stefano Stefanucci, Director of Equalitas, said: “The scale of what MARTINI has achieved is a first in the Italian wine industry. Equalitas certification is a rigorous process that doesn’t happen overnight so for MARTINI to achieve it across 100% of its wineries is extraordinary.”

Equalitas only works with third-party auditors who are experts with a deep knowledge of the wine sector and the certification process is wholly holistic. Equalitas embraces three sustainability pillars – environmental, ethical and economical – and takes into consideration everything from a winery’s carbon footprint and water consumption through to fair commercial terms for farmers and good social practices including training and welfare.

Victoria Morris, Global VP MARTINI, added: “The care we place on the sourcing of every ingredient is reflected in the quality and taste of every drop of MARTINI. That’s as true for our classic vermouths and sparkling wines as it is for our newest innovation, the fantastic MARTINI Non-Alcoholic Aperitivo range. We are ready to celebrate the 160th anniversary of this iconic brand in style!”
