Belsazar Vermouth Red - 75cl - 18% ABV
With a shared a passion for the best in food and drink, Maximilian Wagner, Philipp Schladerer and Sebastian Brack joined forces to create BELSAZAR Vermouth. This young German brand stands up to and can easily be compared with the best vermouths in the world, and we for one feel it delivers impeccably when pairing with Gin.
The key to Belsazar Vermouth is that they use fruit brandies produced by the family-owned Schladerer distillery in the Black Forest, and don't just rely on infusing wine with botanicals and a grape based spirit.
The subtle sweetness of Belsazar comes from adding Black Forest grape must. To stop the must from fermenting, it is refined with brandy that has been left to mature in oak casks. All ingredients are mixed together during the filtration stage. The wine, the fruit brandies and grape must become one.
The results are fresh, bright and packed with flavour. Their range is a must try for all booze hounds.
Belsazar Vermouth Red –
The ruby-red BELSAZAR Vermouth Red (18% ABV) has the ability to captivate the senses. There's an abundance of complex aromas. Vanilla, candied orange, bitter chocolate and spices such as nutmeg, cinnamon and clove combine to leave a sweet impression, offset by a bitter hint of wormwood.
Not too bitter, but with enough depth to make a cracking Negroni, this vermouth suits both classically styled gins as well as Navy Strength offerings that carry a lot of enduring spice on the finish.
