Our vermouth, hand-made by Martínez Lacuesta since 1937, is held to be one of the finest aperitifs.
The “botanicals” (in Italian called “Conzia”), or herbal extracts (herbs and aromatic plants cold-macerated in white wine) are first aged in American oak barrels and then added to the white base wine along with sugar, citric acid, caramel and neutral spirit.
On the nose it is highly aromatic, evoking the macerated herbs used: vanilla, chamomile, gentian and others. In the mouth it is a perfect balance between bitterness, sweetness and acidity with a long finish.
The Bitter Truth Tonic Bitters are made to provide an authentic Gin and Tonic experience. The combination of grapefruit, Sicilian lemon, lime and Seville oranges merge perfectly with hints of juniper berries, orris root and Japanese green tea leaves.
