Boissiere (BWA-see-air) Vermouth is an essential ingredient in countless classic cocktail recipes, recognized for its floral and herbal aromas and refined palate. Boissiere’s prized original blend, infused with select botanicals such as elderflower, chamomile and coriander, was developed in France in 1857. In 1971, seeking a new home, Boissiere relocated to the other side of Mont Blanc to Turin, Italy. This vermouth can claim two of the capitols of vermouth as it home.
Crystalline in color with a very light and floral nose. An initial wave of sweetness on the palate gives way to a light citrusy and floral flavor with hints of rose petal and orange flower water. Finishes with a mildly effervescent mouth feel (though it is not carbonated) with just a hint of roasted nuts.
As an aperitif, neat, over ice with a twist of lemon or as a long drink mixed with soda water, tonic or lemonade.
