Highgate gin distillers Sacred Spirits use English wine flavoured with thyme and Somerset wormwood amongst other botanicals to create this rich, spicy vermouth with an 'English herb garden' character.
Nose: Spices, aniseed and dark chocolate on the nose with a suggestion of mint and cinnamon.
Palate: The palate is full-bodied with red fruit flavours of cranberry and redcurrant with pinpointed notes of orange zest, winter spices and bitter cacao.
Finish: The finish is refreshing with notes of thyme, liquorish and concentrated red berry fruits.
Overall: This is a full-bodied vermouth, very rich in flavour and is perfect in a Negroni with the Sacred Gin and some Campari. Top quality stuff!
