Twisted Nose Extra Dry Vermouth is the latest addition to Winchester Distillery’s portfolio of handcrafted small-batch spirits. A vermouth is a an “aromatized” wine which is then fortified. In this case that means that the wine is flavoured (or aromatized) with various botanicals, and then fortified with Twisted Nose Gin to an ABV of 16%. The white wine is comes from Danebury Vineyards located near Stockbridge, Hampshire and it is flavoured with 18 botanicals. Obviously the exact botanicals are a trade secret but they include wormwood (the name Vermouth derives the French pronunciation of the German word for wormwood), rose petals and other roots, barks and herbs. Even though this is an Extra Dry Vermouth, it is slightly sweetened with caramelised cane sugar, however it still has a very dry finish.
