Vya Sweet Vermouth conjures up an image of holiday baking in your mother’s kitchen. Cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, and clove combine with many warming spices steeped in base wine to create this sensation. Most of the botanicals in Vya Sweet Vermouth are seeds, bark and roots: the energetic parts of plants. This warm energy is felt in the taste of Vya Sweet as a soft, inviting tingle. The aroma is spicy and earthy, while the taste is bitter and sweet.
Vya Sweet Vermouth will add spice and aroma to Manhattans, Negronis, Boulevardiers and other classic cocktails. The original preprohibition Manhattans were made 1:1, rye to vermouth, but these days many bartenders use 3:1. Whichever proportion is preferred, an ounce or more of Vya Sweet Vermouth will harmonize nicely with spirits. Vya Sweet Vermouth is also delightful with a dash of aromatic bitters, with
tonic, or simply on the rocks.
