Medium pale slivery straw color. Lively, citrusy, spicy aromas of spiced apples and pears and melon frosting with a soft, vibrant, very sweet medium-to-full body and a tingling, complex, long honey, medicinal barks and roots, and wormwood tea finish. A very traditional vermouth with ample spiciness and bitterness for classic cocktails.

New to the U.S. market, this dry vermouth smells fresh and fruity. It’s well-structured, too: sweet at first, with fleeting pear and tropical fruit flavors, a trace of minerality on the finish and a faint bitterness. An excellent choice for martinis and other cocktails calling for dry vermouth, but unlike most dry vermouths, this one would be pleasing on its own, with ice and a twist of orange peel.
