Garvey creates Vermut Marinero, a vermouth with salty touches to enjoy as an aperitif served on the rocks with an orange twist.
Drinking vermouth is a very Spanish tradition to enjoy as an aperitif and to whet the appetite, which can now be enjoyed with a fine saline touch from the coast of Cádiz.
Vermut Marinero Garvey is the latest proposal from Garvey, the only vermouth in the world macerated with seaweed such as fucus, sodium and ulva; botanicals such as rosemary, sage and gentian, and citrus, served with lots of ice and a twist of orange.
Made with sherry wine based on palomino grapes from the Macharnudo estate, Marinero is a red vermouth with a slight saline note thanks to the Jerez terroir itself, caressed by the westerly and easterly breezes where the grapes from the Fundador winery grow. These are the tasting notes of this wine flavoured with herbs that came from Greece and that the philosopher Hippocrates macerated with leaves and flowers to combat bad breath and lack of appetite or as an antidote for poisons. Vermut Marinero Garvey is a mahogany-coloured, limpid red vermouth.Olfactory: Citrus and white fruit notes subtly blended with rosemary, gentian and sage flavours, which are intertwined with mineral and saline nuances from the sea breeze, seaweed and plankton.Palate: Subtly acidic entry, suitable sweetness and bitterness, with predominant saline nuances. On this architecture citrus notes, gentian and slightly evocative nuances of seaweed appear very widespread on the Atlantic coast. Very complex, with a bitter finish and a persistent marine aftertaste.
