A first for Knightor. A blend of 24 herbs and spices, many picked in and around Knightor, were used for our first White Vermouth. Some of the Classic herbs were used such as Wormwood Sage and Oregano, plus some more unusual and herein lies the key to the delicate elegance and complexity. The herbs were first infused in a fruity Eau de Vie, distilled from our own grape skins. After a short steeping period, the herb infusion was blended with one of our reserve sparkling base wines and allowed to mature and integrate for a short period before bottling.
The freshness of our white vermouth is accentuated by the use of one of their quality sparkling base wines, bringing much of the elegance and crispness you would expect. Citrus, mint and fresh sage aromas leap from the glass. An alluring, multi-layered nose that marries herbs with the delicate fruit aromas typical of their sparkling wines. The palate is equally appealing, sweet with a pleasant, gentle bitterness.
Knightor white vermouth is perfect for drinking chilled on its own or alternatively use in one of the classic cocktails (Negronis, Martinis and Manhattans) or free your creativity and try something different.
