Fernando de Castilla have added vermouth to their portfolio – made from
Palomino and Moscatel grapes and produced in Jerez. The nose has
pronounced Moscatel grape and spice aromas, with 18 other botanicals. It
is semi-sweet and persistent on the palate, with characteristic wormwood
notes alongside clove and thyme. You must try this, it is very unique, but
you must serve it with ice and plenty of it, with slice of lemon or lemon peel
and soda to suit.
Food recommendations: A dish of olives and roasted almonds. You could add a
slug of Gin Sea London dry gin.
