WITTY

Witty is our version of a dry white vermouth. It starts with Sauvignon Blanc wine from the Wahluke Slope.

We start a four stage process that infuses different herbs and spices into the wine and spirit bases. We use angelica, chamomile, lemon peel, rosemary, coriander, fennel, pao d’oro bark, orange peel, burdock root, cardamom, dried rose, sage, damiana, hyssop, thyme, and marigold. Then it is sweetened to about 1.25% sugar with a simple syrup cooked with bay leaf and vanilla bean.

Witty is an acidic vermouth: great with gin and with sake. It is also a substitute for citrus in a cocktail when you want to add acidity, but don’t want to use citrus.

Jon Christiansen, a Seattle beverage director, is the author of Witty.
