Dark garnet color. Bold, floral, herbal aromas of menthol mint, pine sap, eucalyptus, grilled grapefruit, and stewed wild berries with a supple, sweet-and-sour medium-to-full body and a warming, very complex, long candied jasmine, candied orange peels, ginger mint gum, and peppery Asian spices finish with silky tannins. A fantastic roller coaster of forest and Asian spice flavors for adventurous cocktails.

Vermouth is a fortified wine flavored with certain spices and herbs, including tree bark, seeds and flowers and in Europe, wormwood. The best known examples are from northern Italy, as there are several large manufactures located in Torino in Piedmont. High quality vermouth is also made in France.

There are red and white versions. White vermouth is most famously used in a classic martini, while red vermouth, which is generally sweet, is used in a Manhattan cocktail, among others. Equal parts of dry and sweet vermouth constitute a Perfect Manhattan. Vermouth, with its herbal ingredients, can also settle the stomach.
