Not with a splash; with a plunge! The world of REAL vermouth

May 9, 2012 § 2 Comments

Vermouth is the most wine-like spirit, in its links to the earth through complex botanical infusions. Of course, that’s only if the vermouth is made in the traditional way: actual drinkable wine as a base, fortified, completed with pure sugar and infused with real roots, plants, flowers. The big brands don’t do it this way at all. Today’s column focuses on the guys who do.

    Finally, some deserved attention to the wonderful aspects of Vermouth! Thanks Joe. Being a devoted Martini fan (both gin and vodka), I have always appreciated that scant amount of Vermouth to complete my “adult beverage.”. I like both Dolin and Cocchi.
    I’ve discovered the greatness of a Negroni, and the same brands work, blending nicely with a fine gin like Bombay Sapphire or Plymouth and a Campari or Aperol.
