Summer 2021 - Rosé Vermouth
A Rose Vermouth made to express the full nature and feeling of this summer.
A low intervention Côtes du Rhône Rose base blended with a strawberry wine, made by our friends at Little Mercies bar. We layer this with the flavours and aromas of the summer. At the beginning of summer, we foraged elderflower and fig leaf, then later, pineapple weed and pine needles.
As the hay was cut in the fields, the scent filled the countryside. We isolated that aroma in a hay absolute.
As with all our Vermouths, there is a touch of green coffee, rhubarb root and of course wormwood.
To celebrate the end of the summer, we gathered rosehips to add to our sugar addition. To finish this beautiful Rose Vermouth we invited the team from Callooh Callay bar to blend a 'perfume' addition. They enjoyed a blending workshop with us and settled on a blend of cyprus, hay, rosemary and bergamot.
We've kept the sugar addition minimal for the style, making it extremely drinkable. Enjoy very chilled over ice or 50:50 with a premium tonic.
Toast the end of summer with the flavours of the season.
