BCN Ambre Mediterranean Dry Vermouth 750ml
Country of origin: Spain Alcohol content: 18% ABV
"Crafted in Priorat – Savoured in Barcelona" BCN Vermut seeks to embody both the provincial Spanish afternoon and the intense Barcelona night. This dual character extends to the modern wine-forward style with innovative production, while nonetheless using Catalonia's established historic wine at its base. Garnatxa blanca (grenache blanc) is sourced from 100-year-old vines in Terra Alta for the base wine. The local microclimate with its dry winds from the Ebro Valley and loamy, limestone-rich soil offer the best conditions for the Garnatxa blanca to develop.
The base wine is infused with botanicals including clove, angelica, cinnamon, wormwood, vanilla, rosemary, thyme, wild fennel, pine shoots, juniper berries, Catalan figs, and bay leaf. The fortifying spirit is made from Garnatxa blanca and Carinyena (Carignan) marc brandy macerated with orange, bergamot, and elderflower before being distilled again to fortify the base. Lightly caramelised sugar is used to sweeten the fotified wine to off-dry.
Off-dry and complex, with notes of citrus, elderflower, and Mediterranean herbs over a fine bitterness.
Enjoy over ice with an olive and lemon twist, or mix with gin and soda.
