Product description

Drinking a Vya Sweet Manhattan conjures a vision of holiday baking in a cozy home on a cold winter's day. Vya Sweet is a blend of Tinta Roriz and Orange Muscat, and is hand infused at Quady Winery with a selection of over seventeen herbs and spices. The botanicals in Vya Sweet come from those parts of plants where energy is concentrated: seeds, bark, and roots. These components tend to have bitter elements which in the taste of Vya Sweet are balanced with sweetness. The balance of bitter and sweet, and the warm energy from the botanicals pair fantastically with whiskey, especially with rye. Vya Sweet makes a brilliant Manhattan. The Manhattan cocktail was traditionally made with rye whiskey but Manhattans made today are very popular with bourbon. Both types of whiskey will work with Vya Sweet. The classic proportion of sweet vermouth to whiskey in a Manhattan is 1 part vermouth to 3 parts whiskey. Selecting Vya Sweet as your vermouth will increase the spice and aromatics of your Manhattan, making a big difference in the quality of your drink. Be sure to add three good shakes of bitters to balance it out.

    Sweet vermouth with a difference. I've switched to it because the herbal mix is more flavorful. Try it!

    I received the wrong item. Bev Mo gave me the dry vermouth, not the sweet vermouth.

    Great vermouth. Would definitely buy again

FAQs

Fortified wines are a category that have had distilled spirits added to them during the winemaking process. These include popular dessert wines such as vermouth, sherry, and port.
Our advice is always "drink it when you want to," but typically PX (Pedro Ximenez) sherry is enjoyed with dessert while oloroso, amontillado, and palo cortado can be served with main dishes.
There are five basic types of fortified wine: sherry, port, vermouth, Madeira, and Marsala. Technically, however, any wine that has had neutral spirits added to it can be classified as a fortified wine.
Standard wine is produced from grapes through fermentation in a standard winemaking process, while fortified wines have had distilled spirits added to them either during winemaking or to the finished product. Fortified wines typically have a higher alcohol content than their unfortified counterparts.
It varies by the wine, but most dessert fortified wines fall into the 15-24% ABV range, while unfortified wines have a typical average ABV of 11-16%.
