Written By Press Release Press Release / Wine News Nov 19, 2019 Beaufort Announces New Vermouth SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter PinterestAfter almost 12 months of research and recipe development, we are excited to introduce our first ever vermouth at Beaufort. Vermouth, a fortified, aromatized wine, has its roots in ancient Europe, where it was originally used as a digestive tonic. Bitter herbs, spices, and citrus fruit are often used in flavouring either the base wine or the fortifying liquor. Often sweetened, though sometimes not, vermouth can be enjoyed solo over ice, or as an ingredient in cocktails and mixed drinks.Ours is a modern take on an ancient wine. We fortified our base wine – a single varietal Madeleine Sylvaner – with vodka from Sheringham Distillery in Sooke. Prior to fortification, we infused the vodka with a secret blend of 11 botanicals including wormwood, rosemary, vanilla, lemon and juniper. Our white vermouth is sweetened with natural cane sugar to off-dry.Beaufort Vermouth is moderately bitter, with resinous herbs and lemon lending lively citrus notes, and a sweetness that provides a delicious counter to all of that. We suggest pouring a glass of Beaufort Vermouth over ice and adding a twist of lemon or orange for a refreshing aperitif. Alternatively, try Beaufort Vermouth as an ingredient in a classic cocktail like a Vesper Martini or, better still, a White Negroni.Beaufortnewvermouthwinery SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Written By: Press Release ...
