Tempus Fugit Spirits Vermouth 750ml
Vermouth is a wine-based beverage made by infusing various botanicals (fruits, herbs, spices and roots) into a white, low-alcohol base wine. As is the case with gin, the particular combination of botanicals used varies from producer to producer, and is often a closely guarded trade secret.
Cardamom, chamomile, cinnamon, citrus (peel), cloves, coriander and quinine are common vermouth botanicals, although the list of possible ingredients is extensive. Nutmeg and orange peel contribute a distinctive, refreshing bitterness when required. Juniper berries are used to bring a certain tangy intensity to some vermouth, giving it a flavor otherwise more commonly associated with gin, while the use of hyssop and various members of the anise family lend certain absinthe-like aromas and a subtle green hue.
