World's Best Vermouth - World Drinks Awards 2019
Delicate, floral & with a distinct note of Spanish Sweet Orange, this vermouth is now recognised as the closest equivalent to the legendary Kina Lillet in the Vesper Martini (immortalised by Ian Fleming in Casino Royale, 1953). As such, it is served by Alessandro Palazzi of Dukes Bar, SW1, in all of their Vespers, and also works well on the rocks with a lemon twist, or in a more sophisticated take on the classic Spritz.
From the judges of the World Drinks Awards:
"Sweetness on the nose with orange peels and wormwood. On the palate wormwood developing and opening up with sweet spices, orchard fruits. Nice mouthfeel and warming alcohol coming through."
Note: This is a natural product containing English wine, which may throw a fine sediment - this is perfectly safe to drink and won't affect flavour at all.
