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 Piemontese.
