How to enjoy Vermut Falset
Vermut Falset is an aperitif, but you can drink it whenever you want. We usually sip Vermut Falset along with some olives (Arbequines or stuffed with anchovies), crisps and some cockles in vinegar. Enjoy it also with a simple snack, finger food, savory appetizers such Iberian ham or cheese croquettes or other “tapas”.
We recommend you to drink Vermut Falset on the rocks, with a spritz of soda water and a slice of orange. If you prefer to experience all the aromas take it just neat and chilled.

How is it made
Vermut Falset is made with Grenache and Carignane grapes, which are then fermented on their skins just like in red wine production. The result is a very aromatic wine with a deep red color. When the wine is ready, it is fined, filtered and a special infusion is added made up of 120 different botanicals (on of them wormwood, of course) which will be left to macerate for more than a year in 500 and 600 litre oak barrels.
This infusion is added then to the wine in suitable proportions, the sweetness is corrected and it is left to rest for nearly three years in 225L oak vats. No caramel is added.
The vermouth is bottled in small quantities and the vats are refilled and never completely emptied. Vermut Falset is bottled without any physical or chemical modifications which may cause some settling in the bottom of the bottle over time.
We can enjoy the red version of Vermut Falset after nearly fifty years since it was last made. By pure chance we recovered the original formula which was lost back in the sixties.
