Only 1888 uses whole, pressed premium Spanish olives in its dirty martini mixer. True olive flavor is extracted using a one-ton press, and the resulting olive, pimento, and brine flavor is harmonious. Whatever your preference, don't use the olives that have settled to the bottom of the jar, whether you like your martinis dusty, unclean, or filthy. Instead of taking a chance on an imperfect dirty martini, opt for the tried-and-true recipe from 1888 and enjoy your cocktail every time.
Their Story Behind the Olive Juice
One can only make a genuine filthy martini with 1888 Dirtiest Martini Mix, the original and only of its kind. It's the first genuine olive juice ever packaged in a bottle. Using a one-ton press, the juice of whole Spanish olives is extracted to create this unique product. The only ingredient is pure olive taste without the saltyness. Kenneth Hamburger, CEO, notes that while mixers have been available for a while, a careful examination of ingredient lists reveals that very few, if any, are genuinely derived from olives. Water, salt, and lactic acid are the only things in most of the products on the shelves. Olives, where are you? To make a martini more appealing, please include olives rather than salt. And all that is in the olive jar is salt water with a faint olive flavor from the olives floating in it. 1888 is made using a proprietary procedure that involves pressing olives to bring out their natural, robust flavor. This ingredient is vital to setting 1888 apart from other martini mixes on the market.
