Honeysuckle, apples and pears, with a little funk that transforms into rich peach, chamomile and elderflower
Dry Vermouth originated in France and is typically clear to a light straw colour, contains fewer botanicals than the Rosso variety, yet has a higher wormwood content and is thus, more bitter. Oddly enough, Dry Vermouth is also typically ‘off-dry’ and contains 3g/100 mL sugar. The term ‘dry’ simply refers to it being dryer than a sweet vermouth. ‘Extra-dry’ is the term applied to Vermouths, typically only made for the N. American market, and are entirely devoid of sugar.
Our Dry Vermouth follows the French tradition. The ‘off-dry’ profile is critical in balancing out both the additional bitterness from the wormwood and in spirit forward cocktails like a classic Martini.
Our favourite way to drink this is in a Vermouth & Tonic with Rootside’s Classic Dry Tonic Mix; it’s the unexpected new usual for us at home in the summer!
You may also notice over the seasons that our Dry Vermouth is sometimes lighter and sometimes darker - the honey we use in our mead changes colour depending on the time of year it was harvested and thus affects the final colour of our Vermouth!
