Vermut Blanco, Lustau
Widely considered one of the finest producers of sherry in Jerez, Emilio Lustau’s bodega dates back to 1896, and began exporting in the 1950s. Much of the Spanish brandy and vermouth (“vermut”) tradition is tied to sherry production, and Lustau brings their winning combination of superior quality and approachable pricing to bear on both categories as readily as sherry. The grape airen is single-distilled, in a short column similar to those found in Armagnac, then used to fortify wine from the bodega for their range of vermut or aged using the solera system to integrate very old brandy with the fresh vibrance of younger spirits.

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! 15% ABV
