Paso Vermu - Sweet Red Vermouth
Paso-Vermú is a classic sweet vermouth with a Paso-Primero twist. It’s crafted from a blend of Paso-Primero Tinto & Blanco which is sweetened, fortified and infused with Pyrenean herbs and spices. Great on its own, cut with tonic or boosted with a splash of Ludlow gin. It has recently been awarded a bronze medal at the 2018 London Wine Competition.
Paso-Vermú is a passionate response to three years of making wine in northern Spain. Every day would inevitably involve an hour or two relaxing in one of the bars in Somontano and as anyone who's been to Spain recently will know, that means drinking vermú. Winemakers are always curious to know how our drinks are made and once maker Tom had fallen in love with vermú, his curiosity got the better of him and he had to find out more.
From those lazy, hazy days of drinking in bars Tom started experimenting and crafting his own unique blends. After months of sampling, trialling and having a lot of fun he found a recipe and Paso-Vermú was born. Obviously he doesn't want to give all of his secrets away but he's incredibly proud that with the exception of our botanicals 100% of our vermú comes from grapes. Not only does this keep his winemaking sensibilities happy but also ensures that the product is as close to a natural vermú as you can get with no artificial sweeteners or unnecessary chemical compounds.
We recommend drinking it over ice with a splash of gin and a big slice of orange, but it's an incredibly versatile ingredient for cocktails and makes the perfect negroni.
