The making and selling of vermouth in Catalonia, has been documented since the second half of the nineteenth century. At that time, the export of wine and local brandies from the area around Tarragona was really taking off and parallel to this positive industrial and commercial climate, vermouth was able to take root there as a new wine product.
Our Padró & Co. Rojo Clásico is a tribute to the vermouth which was sold originally from wine cellars or enjoyed religiously every Sunday at noon. We want to evoke those herby and slightly medicinal aromas which can transport you back, even now, to the atmosphere inside those local bars and cafés.
Nose: Aromas of sweet spices, cinnamon and clove, in particular, as well as tones of candied fruits.
Mouth: A creamy and fresh palate followed by memories of slightly bitter Mediterranean herbs.
Vermouth made from a unique infusion of aromatic herbs and aged in the barrel before bottling at our winery.
