Smooth, full-bodied palate with fresh sensations of orange, followed by a superbly bitter taste that is round and intense with notes of honeyed caramel.This product contains alcohol.

When they think of vermouth in Spain, they usually associate it with the aperitif, particularly pre-lunch drinks on weekends. However, the possibilities for vermouth are endless and with five different expressions to choose from, our Padró & Co. vermouths offer a journey of discovery. From aperitif to cocktail, vermouths can even be drunk with the different courses of a good meal, as a drink afterwork or even as a night-cap.Padró & Co. vermouths allow you to choose a vermouth for each mood or moment. If you prefer a touch of sweetness, try Rojo Clásico, which is creamy and fresh in the mouth with its Mediterranean herbs, or the zesty and refreshing Blanco Reserva. With Rojo Amargo, their double-infusion vermouth, you will enjoy a pleasant blend of sensations, from fresh and zesty orange to the delightful bitterness of cinchona.In order to fully appreciate the delicate balance of the ingredients in each vermouth, we recommend serving Padro & Co vermouths cold and without ice or any garnishes, such as fruit or olives in the glass. Padro & Co vermouths are the result of a long process that goes all the way from the vineyard right onto to the palate, so we recommend that you try them neat. If drunk with ice, the delicate herb flavours will be diluted, so we recommend adding a slice of orange or lemon or some olives. A soda syphon is traditionally used to make a longer, less intense vermouth drink, but bear in mind that part of the body of the wine and herb essences will be lost.And another tip: once the bottle is open, be sure to store it in the fridge. This will slow down the oxidation process allowing the vermouth to maintain its quality for several months.If you prefer to make a cocktail, heres a suggestion…BLACK LIGHTNING Cocktail with Vermouth Padró & Co.
