Travel with them and discover the delicious flavors of Catalonia. Just come and enjoy it!
The Vermouth, a special ritual in Barcelona
The vermouth, as we say, is the prelude to festive food. A good excuse to meet friends and family but, in addition, it is a ceremony to whet your appetite.
Eva will tell you here some curiosities, for example, that you have to travel before the Spanish Civil War (1936), to know that the first vermouth of the city was served in “Vermut Torino”, in a wonderful modernist place in town that arrived from Italy. The Catalans went crazy with this flavored wine and began to make their own vermouth.
A few years ago, this fashion returned to stay, so that today in the city you can find many specialized “Vermuterías” offering more than 100 types of this invigorating drink. In fact, we even have a Vermouth Museum in the Tarragona town of Reus that you should not miss, if you want to become an expert in this.
The base of this apéritif is a white wine to which a neutral brandy is added and flavored with the distillation of different botanical ingredients. It can be between 30 and 80 ingredients, which determine the quality, aromas, and flavors. Sweet, sour, dry, bitter, white, black…
You have to taste it!
