Vermut Blanco is made from Fino and Moscatel sherries. Fino gives dry minerality and almond characteristics, with moscatel imparting a sweet, yet floral, citrus peel finish. The result is a light and refreshing vermouth, bright golden yellow, with a markedly bitter end. Each of the 9 botanicals (most notably chamomile and gentian) are macerated separately then combined and added to the sherry. Delicious on its own and in cocktails!
