Vermouth

When you think of vermouth, you probably think of a bottle of bitter fortified wine, lingering for years at the back of your drinks cabinet to be used only occasionally in Martinis or Manhattans. Well, think again. In Spain, they drink vermouth neat. If that sounds unpleasant to you, don’t worry: Spanish vermouth is a world away from what you’re used to. Drinkers often start off deeply sceptical about trying vermút but they often end up saying it was their favourite drink!

In Spain they typically drink sweet, red vermouth: vermút rojo. Despite its colour, all vermouth starts out as white wine. It gains its darker colour through being infused with caramel and a range of spices and botanicals. Each vermút has its own flavour profile of spices used, so look out for cinnamon, cardamom, and cloves in the aroma and taste. It’s almost like a cold mulled wine!

These vermuts can not only be drunk neat as mentioned but also go very well with the negroni concept, be it using Gin or Mezcal as the base drink.

  • Nordesia Vermouth Roxo

    Nordesia Vermouth Roxo

    Red vine vermouth, wine alcohol origin vermouths, of great versatility with Atlantic character to make you the perfect Negroni.  Just add Gin and Campari!

    Vermouths elaborated form the highest quality Galician brandies. From Mencía and Albariño grapes we elaborate a brandy which is macerated at low temperatures with aromatic herbs during approximately one month. Afterwards, it is performed a coupage with wine. We keep it during 4 months in French oak casks to reduce the notes of wood and toasted. The process ends with a 20 days period in bottle before its labelling.

     

    Tasting notes:

     

    Mahogany red colour with amber hues.

    Intense with balsamic notes, aromatic herbs nuances and a fresh fruit background.

    Long and original aftertaste, the balanced acidity provided by the Albariño is surprising.

    Its bitter aftertaste makes and rounds it as a elegant and bold vermouth.

     

    With this vermouth, you are looking for a dry gin to compliment it, and mix it with a similar sized measure of Campari for a wonderful Negroni.  These are our suggestions of gins:

  • Nordesia Vermouth Branco

    Nordesia Vermouth Branco

    White vine vermouth, wine alcohol origin vermouths, of great versatility with Atlantic character and can be one of the three ingredients in a White Negroni.

    Vermouths elaborated form the highest quality Galician brandies. From Mencía and Albariño grapes we elaborate a brandy which is macerated at low temperatures with aromatic herbs during approximately one month. Afterwards, it is performed a coupage with wine. We keep it during 4 months in French oak casks to reduce the notes of wood and toasted. The process ends with a 20 days period in bottle before its labelling.

     

    Tasting notes:

     

    Straw yellow colour, clean and bright

    Expressive in the nose with the fruity features of the Albariño variety: apple, peaches in syrup and elegant notes of orange peel and candy, medicinal herbs and nuances of wormwood.

    Perfect fusion of ripe citrus and balsamic aromas, with a bold and vibrant freshness, which makes it electric and fun. It has a bitterness of raw almond, very “biter”, with a salty background proper of the Atlantic character.

     

    Negronis do not have to be just red in colour, using this Vermouth, one of the London Dry Gins we have such as Slingsby, Ampersand, The Duke or Diplome and then mixed with one of Suze, Cocchi Americano, Salers, Luxardo Bitter, you’re on your way.
