Primitivo Quiles, Vermouth Rojo, Alicante, Spain
RIPE VALENCIA ORANGE, BITTERSWEET CLOVE, YOUR BAR’S NEW BEST FRIEND
This stunning bottle comes to us from Señor Don Primitivo Quiles, arguably the King of Alicante, whose claim to fame is having the oldest bodega in the region(founded in 1780). Made from 100% Monastrell (aka Mourvèdre), this Vermourth is hard to find and equally hard to forget. Boasting a big bouquet of warming spices, it glides over the palate with waves of bittersweet citrus. Still think vermouth is for cocktails only? Grab a chilled tumbler, pour this over a few cubes, add a twist of lemon, and prepare to have your mind blown.
Serving Suggestion: Get your rocks glass ready: you’re about to make the best Negroni you’ve ever had. Equal parts P. Quiles Vermouth Rojo, Cappaletti, Durham Distillery’s Navy Strength Gin, squeeze of Valencia orange.
