The vermouth is a flavoured liqueur with herbs, based on good quality neutral wine, a touch of absinthe and wormwood and other bitter and tonic spices. It has a characteristic aroma that gives it an elegance for a cocktail or aperitif.
Its origin is found in Europe, although it has spread all over the world. The vermouth can be classified in two types: white and black. The black vermouth has its origin in Italy and it is sweeter. The white one, of French origin, is dryer and has a higher alcoholic graduation.
The proper mix of botanics (roots, plants, flowers and spices) is the key to the aromatization of good vermouth. There are hundreds of products to macerate this liquor. Each trademark usually uses between 50 and 80 different ingredients to make this drink. This is the reason why the vermouth is one of the drinks with a widest range of nuances, flavours and scents.
Its characteristic golden colour is provided by sweeteners such as sugar and caramel. In Catalonia, the vermouth production has been traditionally located in Reus (Tarragona) from where this beverage it is exported worldwide. Did you know that there is a Museum of Vermouth in Reus?
