Vermouth Vin Aromatique
L’Afrique is an original formulation of botanicals from West and North African regions. Some of these constituents are ubiquitous and known throughout the world in a range of consumables from curries to colas.
The formula was inspired by my earliest awareness of the fertility of our earth – that distinctly warm, humic character that accompanies the anaerobic flow of nature underground. Compounded with classic carminative herbs & spices, these African botanicals are blended with a heavy & brooding wine and then fortified with spirits to make a distinctly American style Rosso Vermouth. Dark, rich and pleasantly earthy.
Sac’Résine is an original formula vermouth crafted with botanical resins of antiquity. These “Sacred Resins” were used as perfumes in rituals from birth to burial, prescribed medicinally both internally & externally, and were among the most valuable commodities dominating the ancient trade routes of South Asia and China.
A compound of these powerfully pungent saps with delicate herbs and flowers, is blended with a lightly fragrant wine and fortified with spirits to make a unique style of vermouth best categorized as something between a Bianco and a Rosso. Light, citrusy and distinctly aromatic.
