STYLE: Vermouth

Back to Styles List

Modern vermouth is a fairly broad category but is generally dry and bitter with a mild herbal/wormwood aroma. The base wine used in vermouth production is usually a very neutral and non-descript product purchased on the bulk market.

Origin:
Vermouth probably originated in Bavaria where wormwood flavored wine was common and called Wermuth. The 16th century saw a more wide spread production and marketing of flavored wines such as vermouth.

Wyeast Strains:
   4021 - Dry White / Sparkling (formerly Pasteur Champagne™)
   4028 - Red (formerly Chateau Red™)
   4783 - Sweet White (formerly Rudesheimer™)
