Witty Dry Vermouth

Crisp, acidic, herbaceous dry vermouth with a Sauvignon Blanc base.

Witty is a non-traditional dry white vermouth with a delicate flavor profile that is lovely on its own or in a cocktail. It’s a solid interpretation of a traditional European product that features Washington wine from the Wahluke Slope.

Witty Dry Vermouth

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, Japanese whiskey and sochu. use it in a cocktail when you want to add acidity, but don’t want to use citrus.
