Dark brown color. Aromas of carob, oregano and thyme, licorice, tomatillo, castelvetrano olive, cacao nibs, eucalyptus, and dried cherries with a satiny, vibrant, sweet medium-to-full body and a smooth, interesting, medium-long black toast, fennel fronds, and molasses finish. A pervasive and dark vermouth that will stand up to robust whiskies; try in a rye manhattan or on the rocks with olives.

Vermouth Red

Spirits Glass Copita Amber.jpg
Serve in a Copita
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.
