About Vermouth Blanc
Wine Specialty is a category for higher alcohol wine based on aperitifs with a variety of flavorings that are sold in the spirits channel, but are not traditional fortified wines. This includes fruit aperitifs from Poland at 36 proof made from cherry and peach; Pineau des Charentes, a French aperitif made from wine grapes and Cognac eau-de-vie, and spiced dessert wine, made from herbs steeped in sweet wine. These specialty wines can have multiple purposes, be it drinking on their own, use in cocktails or even in cooking.

Light and herbaceous, yet a touch sweet; try in a classic cocktails that don't need too much of a bitter component.

Beautiful apéritif to be sipped alone on ice that expresses layers of delicious green herbs with enough body to mix and make a delightful martini.
La Quintinye Vermouth Royal Blanc

Fruity, floral, and herbaceous this would make for a lovely apéritif on its own or a great compliment to gin in long drinks, but too sweet for a martini application.
