About This Product...
Dark mahogany with citric, herbal notes of aged sherry on the nose. Sweet and slightly bitter with a smooth finish. An aperitif with olives and roasted almonds. Serve over ice with orange peel. Used in Manhattans and Negronis.
“This is a red and sweeter Vermouth as contrasted with the dry, white vermouth used in Martini and is best served chilled, with ice and a slice of orange in a large wine glass. You will wonder why we ever thought of adding in spirits, its entirely delicious and ancient tasting on its own with perfumed, woody forest like charm.” Tomás Clancy, Movies and Booze, Newstalk FM February 2018
About the winery
Jan Pettersen is master of production and ageing of fine, unblended, untreated sherries and this Vermouth is the latest in the range of excting drinks to come from the Fernando de Castilla stable.
The sherries are made from the finest wines, these range from the pale, light and elegant Finos to the unique Antique sherries and have received numerous international awards. The brandies are made using only alambic distillates of selected white wines: primarily aged in new French and American oak and subsequently for long periods in sherry ageing barrels. Only the highest categories of brandy are made and it is rare to find such exceptional sherries and brandies made under one roof. With the increasing popularity of sherries throughout Europe and the States, as an aperitif and accompanying food, it is something that should be found in the cellar of every top restaurant.
