Girolamo Ruscelli, a true “Renaissance Man” of the 16th century, was an Italian physician, alchemist, humanist, inventor, cartographer, and a founder of the ‘Academy of Secrets’, the first recorded example of an experimental scientific society. In 1555, he assembled one of the greatest manuals of ancient curative recipes, The Secrets of Alexis of Piedmont, under his pseudonym Alessio Piemontese. The recipes, many of which were previously banned, hidden or lost by the Church during the Dark Ages, included several elixirs which appear as distinct ancestors, and may have served as base-recipes to as Vermouth. The Alessio Vermouths are named in homage to the great Alessio the herbal wine-tonic which eventually became what we know as Piemontese.
