Solstice Vermouth

Batch 2022

A vermouth of uncommon origin. Crafted from white hybrid grapes and heirloom red plums, Solstice guides the palate in a meandering line through the abundance of high summer. Full skin-contact yields angular structure, while rose hips, sumac, and dandelion speak to summer in the mountains.

Deeper Dive

A true vermouth in that wormwood is the bittering agent, but unorthodox in the base wine being plums in addition to grapes, and that both are fermented on the skins.

Plays Well with...

Floral gins, rye whiskey, or just a large ice cube.
A great stand-in for Campari or other rosso aperitivo. Consider a Negroni or Boulevardier, or use as a sweet vermouth for a more angular, fruity riff.
