A sweet, Italian-style vermouth that conjures visions of holiday baking in a cozy kitchen on a cold winter's day.
Infused with warm spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom and clove, drinking Vya Sweet Vermouth conjures a vision of holiday baking in a cozy home on a cold winter’s day.
Made in an Italian style, Vya Sweet’s base is a proprietary blend including Quady Starboard Batch 88 port-style wine (Portuguese varietals), Quady Essensia Orange Muscat and dry California white wine. It is then hand infused at Quady Winery with a selection of over 17 herbs and spices.
The botanicals in Vya Sweet come from those parts of plants where warm energy is concentrated: seeds, bark, and roots. These components tend to have bitter elements, which are then balanced with sweetness. Visit our Apothecary page to learn more about each of the botanicals and wines in Vya Sweet.
The balance of bitter and sweet, and the warm energy from the botanicals open the palate and pair fantastically with the vanilla notes in whiskey.
Vya Sweet makes a brilliant Manhattan; try it in the classic 2:1 ratio or with a 50:50 ratio of vermouth to whiskey – a Quady family favorite. Enjoy it in a Negroni, a famously bitter cocktail made especially palatable with Vya’s enticing aroma and harmonious sweet characteristics. As an aperitif, simply pour Vya Sweet on the rocks with a twist of orange to experience “Christmas in a cocktail glass.”
Proprietary ingredients, carefully crafted formulas, and expert winemaking result in vermouth that you can use more of in your cocktails because it is superbly balanced, adds enticing aroma, and harmonizes well with other spirits.
“Christmas in a cocktail glass” with nostalgic baking spices
17+ botanicals including cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and bitter orange
Quady Essensia and Starboard add viscosity, aroma, texture, complexity
The 50:50 Manhattan doesn’t work with most vermouths, but Vya Sweet Vermouth marries exceptionally well with the vanilla notes in whiskey.
