Vya Vermouths have a whole NEW look! We wanted to put the magic that’s in the bottles, on the bottles with labels that show the botanicals and creativity that go into making every batch of Vya Vermouth. Rest assured – THE FORMULAS HAVE NOT CHANGED. You can still enjoy the same flavors and aromas you love, just with a new look!
Drinking Vya Sweet Vermouth conjures a vision of holiday baking in a cozy home on a cold winter’s day.
Vya Sweet Vermouth is a blend including Tinta Roriz (Starboard Batch 88), Orange Muscat (Essensia) and dry white wine. It is hand infused at Quady Winery with a selection of over seventeen herbs and spices.
The botanicals in Vya Sweet Vermouth come from those parts of plants where energy is concentrated: seeds, bark, and roots. These components tend to have bitter elements, which are then balanced with sweetness. The balance of bitter and sweet, and the warm energy from the botanicals open the palate and pair fantastically with the vanilla notes in whiskey.
Vya Sweet Vermouth makes a brilliant Manhattan full of spice and aromatics. The Manhattan cocktail was traditionally made with rye whiskey, but Manhattans today are very popular with bourbon. Both types of whiskey will work well with Vya Sweet. The classic proportion of sweet vermouth to whiskey in a Manhattan is 1 part vermouth to 3 parts whiskey. Vya Manhattans taste best with at least 1 oz. of sweet vermouth. We recommend 1 part Vya to 2 parts whiskey, or 1:1 if you enjoy the classic 50:50 Manhattan - a Quady family favorite.
Vya Sweet makes a balanced and stunning Negroni. The Negroni cocktail, 1 part vermouth, 1 part Campari, 1 part gin, is a classic cocktail from the early 1900s known for its bitter quality. This bitterness comes primarily from Campari, the bitter Italian spirit, and secondarily from the vermouth. Using Vya as your sweet vermouth in your Negroni will make a more aromatic, more complex, and better balanced Negroni. But don’t take our word for it. Try the Vya Negroni for yourself.
Ideal for Negronis and other cocktails, this zesty vermouth has a honeyed sweetness, dried figs and sarsaparilla, plus a rounded finish with plenty of dried apricot, dried fig, Sherry and baking spice notes.
Dark bronze color. Herbal, spicy aromas and flavors of sassafras, cocoa, herbs and barks, and brown spices and gingerbread with a silky, bright, fruity medium body and a smooth, refreshing, crisp spiced citrus, apple pie filling, and mocha toffee finish. A solid, fruity vermouth with a nice balance of sweetness and bitterness that will be very versatile.”
