Vermouth is a revelation. A style of wine aromatised with herbs, naturally sweetened, and fortified with alcohol. Vermouth is at the heart of many classic cocktails, making the choice of a good quality vermouth essential for the success of any Martini, Negroni or Manhattan.

Well respected in their home country of Spain, yet rather less well known outside, Yzaguirre are a vermouth maker with a long and rich history. As far as vermouth makers go, a bit of a hidden jewel. Established in 1884, they have a deep understanding of what makes a vermouth work.

Yzaguirre’s vermouth is outstanding and definitely deserves a wider audience.

The botanicals used by Yzaguirre include coriander, cinchona, rhubarb root, juniper, cloves, cinnamon, vanilla, wormwood, thyme, chamomile, bitter orange peel, lemon peel, and flowers including roses.
Yzaguirre use white wine made from the Macabeu grape variety as the base for their vermouth, also know as Macabeo. The choice of wine is of the utmost importance when making a vermouth, as it is the foundation on which everything else rests. The use of this typically Spanish grape, better known for its use in white Rioja and in Spanish sparkling wine Cava is just one of the things that sets Yzaguirre's vermouths apart from French vermouth and Italian vermouth.

Thanks to the use of base wines based on the grape variety Macabeu, which has the prized property of resisting oxidation, Yzaguirre's vermouth stays in good condition for a considerable amount of time before opening. Once you open a bottle of vermouth though, it should be kept in the fridge and drunk over the next few weeks (or months) to enjoy it at its freshest. Treat it more like a wine than a spirit.
