Vinification: A blend of 31 herbs and spices, many picked in and around Knightor, were used for our Dry Vermouth. Some of the Classic herbs were used such as Wormwood [Artemisia absinthium], Green Cardamom [Elettaria cardamomum], Cinchona [Cinchona officinalis] and Liquorice [Glycyrrhiza glabra], plus some more unusual and herein lies the key to the delicate elegance and complexity. The herbs were first infused in a fruity Eau de Vie, distilled from our own grape skins. After a short steeping period, the herb infusion was blended with one of our reserve sparkling base English wines and allowed to mature and integrate for a short period before bottling.

Winemaker Notes: A delicate yellow colour, our dry vermouth is formed of 31 different herbs, spices and fruit. Intense rich warming nose reminiscent of cologne, bergamot, bitter orange rind and liquorice. Palate is dry, rich, masculine and robust with an underlying spicy bitterness.

Jancis Robinson Vermouth Tasting of 88 world Vermouths | 11 Jan 2021; ' Quite an extraordinary nose! It's an explosion. Eucalyptus forest at winter dawn, cold mist still ragged in the trees and the crush of eucalyptus leaves under foot. There is fantastic precision, length, crystalline delicacy, arrow-like focus'.  (Author Tamlyn Curran )

Our delicate, dry vermouth is perfect for drinking chilled on its own, paired with a range of cheeses or as an ingredient in classic cocktails.
