Vermouth is a wine aromatized with roots, bark, seeds, flowers and herbs and then fortified with a distilled spirit. Though Americans are most familiar with vermouth as a cocktail ingredient, in Europe it is often enjoyed on the rocks with a twist or in a simple spritz. From Spain's vermut to the the Northern Italian vermouth belt centered around Torino, to the Alpine French bastion of Chambery, vermouth is an integral part of European drinking culture. Though most vermouth producers utilize regional botanicals to make their vermouths, there are also marked differences between the Italian, Spanish and French vermouth styles. Stop by and taste the lineup to see which style and producer inspires you.
