Xalar Vermut / Vermouth - Catalonia

This Catalan Vermut is a passion project at Coca i Fito, makers of wine from Montsant and Terra Alta. The word XALAR means "to enjoy, to have fun happily" in the Catalan language. Made from Garnacha Blanca from Terra Alta, a fortified unfermented grape must called mistela and aged in French oak barrels.

The plants and spices used for maceration and infused include: Rosemary, elderflower, thyme, chamomile, angelica root, licorice, maiden, clove, gentian root, sage, orange peel, walnut nutmeg, fennel, orange blossom, cinnamon, basil, savory, lemon peel, oregano, bay leaf, ginger, juniper, hibiscus flower, turmeric, coriander, lemongrass, green anise, star anise and dill.

Fresh, aromatic and intense a perfect as an aperitif on the rocks, or as a complement to cocktails. The striking art nouveau was inspired by the late 19th century, an era when vermouth became one of the most popular drinks. It beautifully illustrates the main ingredients used to make this vermut.
