A whole story: 1813 - 1911

The wine and spirits merchant, Joseph Noilly, created his first French vermouth recipe in 1813, based on an outdoor wine ageing process, unique in the 19th century,
In 1850 Louis Noilly joined forces with his son-in-law, Claudius Pratet, and established La Maison Noilly- Prat in the picturesque fishing village of Marseillan, whose sunny vineyards border the Etang de Thau and the Mediterranean.

In 1865 Following the death of Louis Noilly, his daughter Anne-Rosine, widow of Claudius Prat, took over the family business Noilly Prat & Cie. In 1911 the Noilly-Prat "Original Dry" acquired international fame by being included in one of the first "Martini cocktail", created by Martini di Arma di Taggia in New York.
