Augustus Perucchi went into the vermouth business in Barcelona in 1876. He claims to be the very first Spanish vermouth producer. Vermouth Perucchi is made from best-quality white wine with more than 50 different botanicals that have been macerated, ground, infused, pressed, and filtered, then aged in century-old oak foudres. These distinctly made vermouths are something that need to be experienced. The extra dry is moderately dry and features ripe apples and Reisling in the nose. This vermouth possesses no bitter or botanical character we could detect. The wine is pleasant to drink on its own. It plays well with Tanqueray or Hendricks Gin. Old barrels.
