Vya Manhattan

When it comes to Manhattans, not just any vermouth will do. The quality and complexity of the vermouth greatly affects the quality and complexity of the cocktail. For a better Manhattan, use Vya Sweet Vermouth and enjoy the difference.

The Difference Makers:
Rye whiskies/bourbons have oaky flavor profiles that include vanilla, coconut, spices.

Baking spices in Vya Sweet – cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, cloves – uniquely complement the oak, spices and vanilla components of whiskey/bourbon.

Vya is made with complex, balanced, and aromatic base wines – Orange Muscat and Tinta Roriz, not just dry white wine – and it brings balance, complexity, and aroma to the Manhattan and other mixed drinks.

Best with at least 1 oz. or more: you can use more Vya than other vermouths in your cocktails to add flavor and aroma.
