English wine on a novel journey
We collect and carefully recraft English wine from local wineries into a range of quality English Craft Vermouths.
Our original processes are an innovative way to increase everyone's sustainability as they prevent this wine from otherwise going to waste.
Our collection is lovingly flavoured with fresh botanicals exclusively grown and foraged in the UK.
Vermouth and Gin: An original love story
Vermouth and Gin share many similarities- they're both embedded in centuries of our drinking history; they both use botanicals for flavour and they're combined in many original cocktails including the classic Gin Martini.
But unlike Gin, Vermouth is not a spirit, making it naturally much lower in alcohol. Our English Craft Vermouths are just 16 %ABV. And because Vermouth is not distilled it exudes much more flavour from its wine base and botanical extracts.
What is Vermouth?
Vermouth is a fortified wine, and we have fortified our English wines to 16 %ABV to make our English Craft Vermouth.
Vermouth is also an aromatised wine, and names Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium) amongst its botanical flavourings. Wormwood is a herb known to aid digestion, which is why it has been drunk for centuries as both an apéritif and digestif.
We cultivate or forage for most of our botanicals so we can use the freshest leaves and flowers for the optimum extraction and flavour across the range of our English Craft Vermouth.
Enjoy it like you would a high quality gin: in a long drink with a good tonic, in a short drink such as a negroni, or chilled and neat.
We are fortunate to be surrounded by English wineries that are as forward thinking as we are, allowing us to create delicious drinks and showcase our shared novel ingredient.
We are an innovative small company of experts that seek to limit our negative global impact and those of our customers through the mindful use of resources and our positive contribution to the circular economy.
