Cap Mattei

Corsica’s favourite apéritif

old ad for Cap Mattei

Cap Mattei, invented in 1872 and still going strong, is a 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.
