Vermut

NV

For this Vermouth different herbs, like fennel, rosemary, cumin, cinnamon and vanilla. are macerated for over a year in oak barrels.To this herbal essence, white wine made from Macabeo, Pedro Ximénez and White Garnacha is added, along with a small amount of sugar to give it the desired sweetness. The vermouth then ages for a minimum of two years in old oak barrels, where it obtains the desired aromas and characteristic amber coloring.

After one year in oak, a small amount of the “young” vermouth is added to the barrel of “old” vermouth”, where it rests for another year before being bottled, in small quantities at a time. This ensures that the minimum age of the vermouth is two years but mixed with vermouth that is much older, similar to the “solera” system of Jerez.

"Ruddy orange in hue, this Catalonia vermouth offers earthy aromas. The deep, intriguing palate has plenty of bittersweet interplay, flitting between hints of melon and white floral freshness to orange peel and almond bitterness, accented with rosemary and vanilla. Complex and delicious. New to the U.S. as of July 2017."
