Best Vermouth Tasting Gourmet Box

In Spain, the vermouth aperitif is sacred! The Spanish say "¡ es la hora del Vermouth!" which would be the equivalent for us of "it's time for a bear". In the past, having a small glass of vermouth was a way to whet the appetite with a light snack. But lately, this vermouth moment has become a very popular tradition and the best excuse to have an aperitif in good company. That's why we wanted to create this vermouth aperitif set, the ideal gift for aperitif lovers who want to make new discoveries and enjoy the pleasure of tasting genuine, artisanal vermouth. Discover our Vermouth hors d'oeuvres gift box. As vermouth lovers know, vermouth is a wine, usually white, flavoured with various herbs and spices, and fortified slightly by adding quality wine alcohol.

Vermouth is a wonderful aperitif drink with endless combinations. It is ideal to whet the appetite: this is how it was originally consumed, just before lunch or dinner. Vermouth, which comes from the German "Wermut" meaning wormwood, generally contains wormwood (which has been macerated in wine) and/or cinchona, which, along with its bitterness, helps to improve the functioning of the liver and gall bladder, by increasing the secretion of bile juices.

In short, a small glass of Vermouth will activate our digestive system for later ingestion. In this Vermouth aperitif basket, we offer you the chance to taste a great artisanal vermouth that won the silver medal at the Premis Vinari, which rewards the best Catalan wines and vermouths, accompanied, of course, by the essential Spanish aperitifs for a great moment of tasting with friends. The time for vermouth has come!


XALAR, Spanish white grenache premium artisanal Vermouth (70 cl, 16º)

vermouth-xalarWineries: Vinos Algars y Coca i Fitó.

In this gourmet Vermouth gift box, we offer you the possibility of tasting a great vermouth made in the purest Mediterranean tradition. This vermouth is the result of four years of research by the oenologists Toni Coca and Silvia Pujol. It is an artisanal white vermouth with a typically Mediterranean character, made from wine and mistelle (a mixture of grape must and wine alcohol) of white Grenache macerated with a combination of more than 30 different herbs and spices that give it complexity, freshness, delicacy and a slightly bitter, persistent and pleasant character. Typical Mediterranean aromatic plants (rosemary, thyme and fennel), balsamic plants (green anise, savory, laurel...) to which is added the maceration of citrus peels (lemon, orange), roots (gentian, angelica, liquorice...), spices (cinnamon, cloves, turmeric...), and flowers (chamomile, elderberry, wormwood...)

A very pleasant vermouth to taste for sure ! The word Xalar means "to enjoy, to have fun" in the region of Reus: this is clearly the meaning of the tasting of this premium Vermouth.

Tasting Notes, Xalar Vermouth

The nose is full of nuances where spices, dried flowers, balsamic notes and citrus peel predominate. The whole gives freshness and complexity to this Vermouth. A diversity of changing aromas, each time we approach the nose in the glass transmits different memories such as cinnamon, clove, anise, citrus, savory, licorice, nutmeg, basil, sage, dill, ginger, rosemary, thyme, chamomile... On the palate, the entry of this vermouth is very fresh, full and intense with a long organoleptic journey until reaching a delicate bitterness that brings persistence and character. Food pairings - Ideal as an aperitif, you can drink this vermouth on its own, well chilled, without adding ice which would dilute it or citrus peels which are already present in the recipe for this vermouth. You can also use this vermouth as a complement in cocktails or to accompany a meal.

How to enjoy your Xalar vermouth

Xalar vermouth has a smooth entry with a sweet, elegant touch and a slightly bitter aftertaste, characteristic of a good vermouth. This bitterness, although sudden at first, leaves a fresh and pleasant sensation after a few seconds. The ideal way to drink Xalar is on its own and very cold, without ice, as it would lose some of its creamy texture. It is not necessary to add citrus fruit (orange or lemon peel) as both are already infused in the recipe in the right proportion. Recommended serving temperature: 8º C.
