Maidenii Sweet Vermouth 375ml
Country of origin: Australia Alcohol content: 16% ABV
Gilles and Shaun, winemaker and bartender, were first united over their love of the negroni. They were both convinced that the sweet vermouth used in the classic should never overpower the gin. Accordingly, they created the sweet vermouth to be perfectly balanced both as a vermouth and as a component of the cocktail. Maidenii Sweet will take your negroni to unchartered territory.
Built on a Heathcote Cabernet Sauvignon base, this new world class vermouth brings a dominant note of strawberry gum to a relatively dry sweet vermouth. Along with Maidenii’s heroes strawberry gum, sea parsley, river mint and wattleseed, Maidenii Sweet Vermouth boasts grapefruit, mace and angelica root.
Use whenever an Italian, sweet, rosso, or red vermouth is called for, but with a dryer edge. Consider pairing with a blanco tequila.
Maidenii is a collaboration between French wine maker Gilles Lapalus the winemaker at Sutton Grange, and Shaun Byrne, master mixologist/alchemist who on most nights can be found tinkering in Melbourne's Gin Palace.
Together they developed the Maidenii range of Vermouths using quality wines as a base and a wide range of native and imported herbs, fruits & spices and of course, wormwood.
