Perfect for a classic Martini with a Cornish twist!
"Hands-down the most elegant, refined, complex, racy, wine-like dry white vermouth that I have tasted."
Tamlyn Curran for Jancis Robinson's Vermouth Tasting: 88 World Vermouths.
Tasting 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.
Ingredients: 20ml Knightor Dry Vermouth, 50ml Dry Gin, Ice
Method: Add plenty of ice to a mixing glass, along with the Gin, Knightor Dry Vermouth. Stir for 30 seconds, strain and pour into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with red grapefruit peel twist and rosemary.
Winemakers notes: 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.
