This delicious vermouth is flavorful and full of character. It is a slightly aged vermouth, having spent seven months in new American oak barrels before bottling. It is sweet, spicy, and has prominent floral notes. It is pleasant in a mixer, or just as easy to drink on its own, Spanish style - in a glass, over ice, with orange zest and an olive.
Vermouth is essentially a form of fortified wine. The wine is fermented and aged as usual. When the wine is ready to become fortified, spices and herbs are added alongside sugar to infuse extra character in the wine. It is then allowed to age for some time and then transferred to barrels for further maturing. While vermouth, especially Italian and French variants, can be quite striking and difficult to handle, the same cannot be said for this delicious Spanish vermouth from Bodegas Martinez Lacuesta.
