Brushed amber color. Interesting aromas and flavors of ginger coffee cake, toasted coconut, strawberry candies, apricot agridolce, honeycomb, heirloom apple, and ripe papaya with a satiny, crisp, fruity sweet light-to-medium body and a smooth, stimulating, buoyant almond nougat and allspice finish. A unique and tropical cocktail ingredient that will be welcomed by craft bartenders; will play well with rum, sherry, and tequila.

Vermouth is an aromatized, fortified wine flavored with certain spices and herbs, including tree barks, seeds and flowers.

Historically there were two main vermouth styles, a sweet Italian vermouth and a drier, lighter French vermouth. Today many styles of dry and sweet, red and white vermouths are made in many regions of the world. More and more diversity in style is seen with the success of new-world, craft vermouths entering the market. Enjoy these wines on the rocks, with soda, or in your favorite classic cocktails like a Manhattan, Martini, or Negroni.
