World’s oldest martini mixed in Las Vegas

A martini containing gin and bitters from 1900, thought to be the oldest ever created, has been crafted in Las Vegas by famed bartender Salvatore Calabrese.


Containing spirits with a combined age of 300 years, the Martini is a combination of Park & Tilford New York gin and orange bitters, both created in 1900, and Noilly Prat vermouth circa 1890.

It was created at his namesake bar in Las Vegas, Bound by Salvatore Calabrese, based in The Cromwell Hotel.

In 2012, Calabrese broke the Guinness World Record for creating the most expensive cocktail, called Salvatore’s Legacy, which cost £5,500.

The cocktail was revealed to be the oldest at that time, containing liqueur and Cognac from the time of the American Revolution and Captain Cook’s claiming of Australia.

Calabrese’s “most expensive” record was later broken by Australian bartender Joel Heffernan and his The Winston cocktail, costing £8,200.

His most recent serve will be available at Calabrese’s bar inside London’s Playboy Club from 15 April.
