Cap Mattei

Corsica’s favourite apéritif

old ad for Cap Mattei

Cap Mattei, invented in 1872 and still going strong, is an apéritif based on mistelle, quinine and exotic fruits. Like vermouth it comes in red and white versions.

Mattei also make a liqueur, Cédratine, from the citrons of Cap Corse, and Myrttei from the local myrtle.
