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.
