Atsby Vermouth is the creation of Adam Ford, a wine and spirits enthusiast who had the vision of bringing the romance of vermouth back to the United States. Although inspired by traditional European vermouth, Ford worked closely with a certified sommelier to create a new, artisanal American vermouth heavily influenced by his 21st century knowledge of wine, spirits, herbs and food.
The base wine for Atsby "Armadillo Cake" Reserve New York Vermouth is steel-tank fermented chardonnay from the North Fork of Long Island. Over 32 of the finest esoteric roots, spices, herbs, flowers, seeds, and pods are cold steeped in the wine for 21 days. Batches are hand stirred every day until the flavors are perfectly infused, and then it's carefully filtered and added with locally spun Indian Muscovado caramel along with craft apple brandy from the Finger Lakes region of New York. The newly fortified, aromatized wine is then left to meld and mature in steel barrels for over two years before bottling. The resulting vermouth is luscious with silky mouth-feel, offering interlaced notes of cinnamon, cardamom, orange peel and vanilla on the nose and palate. Enjoy it chilled neat or on the rocks with a twist of orange, or use as a base in your favorite classic or modern cocktail.
