What is vermouth?

A fortified wine, vermouth contains alcohol and additional herbs and spices that give it a pleasant aroma. Traditionally, this spirit comes from Italy and France and features both dry and sweet styles. It's a versatile drink that's a great addition to your collection of dessert and fortified wines. Depending on the style, use it as an aperitif, drink it with dessert or blend it with other liquors to create your own cocktails. The options are endless with a vermouth fortified wine.

Flavor profile of this wine

The taste of vermouth depends mainly on its style and the ingredients used. Dry vermouth has a clear white color and contains very little sugar, equivalent to about 5%. It often contains a mix of botanicals that gives it a complex flavor and makes it a great add-in when whipping up cocktails such as martinis.

Sweet vermouth has a deep red tone and is native to Italy. It may contain up to 15% sugar and is subtly sweet but never sugary. With hints of vanilla and floral notes, this red wine works well as a dessert wine. It's also a nice addition to drinks such as a Manhattan or negroni. The bright flavor of this spirit complements the dark and rich taste of whiskey and brandy.

Enjoying vermouth wine

While vermouth is a well-known ingredient in popular cocktails, you can also enjoy this drink on its own. It's a good drink before dinner as it freshens the palate and gets your appetite going. Enjoy this wine chilled over ice with an orange slice.
