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.
Lustau Vermut Rosé blends Fino sherry, Moscatel, and Tintilla de Rota wines along with primary botanicals of chamomile, nutmeg, vanilla, cardamom, and wormwood to create not only the delicate, pink color we can’t help but crave but also an enticing flavor profile of red fruit and orange blossom—all with the long sherry finish we’ve come to expect from one of our favorite bodegas. 15% ABV
