Continuing our exploration of BC alcohol: Odd Society Bittersweet Vermouth

leave a comment »

Many fail to develop a taste for the bitter, thus restricting the palette of their lives. Bitter is quite a good flavor that fits a particular niche, and bitter foods are not hard to find—dandelion greens, for example, or bitter melon, excellent in stir-fry. Radicchio, chicory, arugula, endive—all bitter, and the better for it.

Odd Society Bittersweet Vermouth is bitter (as well as sweet: two different sets of taste buds), and it makes a very interesting pre-meal cocktail. Odd Society describes it thusly:

Bittersweet Vermouth

An Old Italian Recipe Rediscovered And Reimagined

Odd Society Bittersweet Vermouth is the perfect union of our commitment to ingenuity in the face of our reverence for tradition. It’s a contradictory blend that yields both the bitter and the sweet, just like a life well lived.

Based on an old Italian sweet vermouth recipe found in an antique notebook, this reimagination combines 25 botanicals and fine BC wine fortified with our malted barley spirit.

Our Bittersweet Vermouth is unique, yet timeless. Its rich and intense flavours will add a subtle complexity to your favourite cocktails or stand alone as a strong apéritif. Cin Cin!

I’m having it in a Manhattan on the rocks with Lot 40 rye and Angostura bitters. No fruit.
