We made vermouth! And then we made vermouth soda.
The base for these cans was Whistling in the Dark - a sweet red vermouth we made with apples, cherries, blueberries, and De Chaunac grapes. We worked closely with our forager last fall to find a few exciting, seasonal botanicals to add to it.
After making the sweet vermouth we blended it with house-made soda water and let it ferment again before putting into these beautiful cans. These cans have zero residual sugar.
It has the following botanicals: Anise hyssop, wild yarrow, roman wormwood and absinthe wormwood.
What's it like?: Think cherries hanging in the sun, with fresh sprigs of mint. It's a low abv, savoury little thing coming in at 4.7%. Tart and fruity, it's perfect for the first days of spring.
It's highly carbed so chill well before opening!
4.7% ABV | 355mL
