ALYSIAN VERMOUTH BITTERSWEET
True craft vermouth featuring ingredients mostly sourced in Sonoma County.
Crafted to be a true amaro instead of the traditional sweet or dry versions, our recipe is a throwback to the days when flavoring came via herbs and roots extracted in wine spirits, before sugar and artificial flavoring became the default. We want you to taste our ingredients and the earth they came from. Like our wines, our vermouth has terroir.
We started with a base of Chardonnay from the Russian River Valley. The base wine was then fortified using house made tinctures, created by placing carefully sourced ingredients into locally made grape distillate for a period of time to extract their unique aromatics and flavors.
Eighteen tinctures and seven steeping plants are showcased in this representation of the natural bounty of Sonoma. While most ingredients were sourced from growers and foragers within a very close area, a few ingredients are not available locally.
Both bouquet and palate show flowers, earth and baking spice, while artichoke and gentian resonate on the finish. This vermouth drinks like an extremely well balanced herbal tea.
Alysian Vermouth was created to be a natural product that can be enjoyed both on its own and blended with a vast array of spirits.
