Partner Vermouth hearkens to an earlier America when alcohol and medicine were one and the same. Whiskey and vermouth cured all.
Vermouth is wine infused with botanicals. This marriage of flavors dates back to the origins of wine itself. The Caesars and Pharaohs of the ancient world had their own royal recipes, as well as the common folks on their farms…families throughout history added herbs and spices to their local wine, both for flavor and for health. Vermouth has always been considered medicinal as well as delicious, and we are continuing the tradition.
For Partner Vermouth we started with a blend of Merlot and Petite Sirah, heightened it with fresh cherries from Lodi California, and then layered in exotic spices from around the world. We made grape spirit infusions of spices like Smoked Black Cardamom, Star Anise, Indian Coriander, Chinchona bark, and Wormwood.
Smokey and exotic on the nose, fruity on the palate, with a long finish that cleans up with the bitter herbs, Partner Vermouth works in a cocktail, on ice, or simply neat.
