Vermut Lustau is hoping to really stir things up in the craft vermouth scene with their latest product. Starting in March 2016, their first Premium Red Sherry Vermouth will be available, made from carefully selected Sherry wines and botanicals. The packaging, designed by Unopuntocuatro, reflects the alluring personality and intriguing taste inside of every bottle
“Vermut Lustau originates in the wisdom and expertise of two olden family traditions. The House of Lustau – artisanal winemakers for over a century – experts in creating enological gems, and the Caballero family – master blenders of crafted liquors since 1830 – who dominate the subtle art of aroma extraction and combination.”
“The secret of the Vermut Lustau formula lies on the harmonious and complex union of sherry wines and botanicals. Mahogany in color with reddish glints. Sweet aromas of ripe fruit are laced with citric and herbal notes over a smoky wood background. In the palate it is silky, flavorful, and balanced. Bitter finish delicately accompanied by a distinctive nutty aftertaste.”
Vermut Lustau begs to be pulled out for a night of revelry and entertaining. The classic appearance seems to express some of the notes inside, from smoky to fruity. Deep hues, like a ruby red and rich black give Vermut Lustau an air of mystery.
“Today, Lustau is considered the global standard-bearer in top quality sherries. The many awards received by Lustau endorse its leading role in the wine and sherry scene worldwide. The philosophy of the winery has not changed since its inception in 1896: to offer the widest and the best quality Sherry range. Passion, dedication and expertise are reflected in Lustau sherries; unique wines full of personality and character.”
