Allies Wines Extra Dry Vermouth 5 a 7 - Mornington - Chardonnay 17% 700ML
Australian Vermouth from Victoria.
Cinq a Sept is a French vernacular for the aperitif time of day. For the uninitiated, Vermouth is a wine based fortified aperitif typically having elements of herb, spice, citrus and bitterness. Most often the wine plays second fiddle to the recipe but with Cinq a Sept it shares equal billing.
Dry, bitter and fragrant. The Cinq a Sept Extra Dry is specifically designed for those that love a very dry Martini but can be used for a range of cocktails. The components are Lemon and Grapefruit peel, Cardamom, Fennel seed, black Pepper, Rosemary, Thyme, Lemon Thyme, Tarragon, Oregano and Angelica. The palate has imperceptible sweetness and is quite (some would say very) bitter. It's a mixer. We love our version of a Dry and Dry using the Extra Dry and some Bundaberg Ginger beer but use it in anything for an aromatic lift and a bitter twist.
