NOSE: It is vibrant and full of sweet fragrances where it emphasizes an intense aroma of green apple.
PALATE: Pale straw in colour. On the palate, it is fresh, clean and subtly herbaceous with notes of licorice, citrus and a sharp sweetness.
FINISH: A mildly bitter finish, but with enough herbal depth to remain complex and interesting. The post taste is predominately of apple smoothly mixed with bitter roots and tree bark.
It is a delicious vermouth! You can enjoy and easily recognize all its nuances over ice - even for non-vermouth lovers.
Our Vemouths are made using a selection of botanicals.
In total, we use 32 botanicals, 22 of which are native to our area. After a long period of maceration with aromatic herbs in clay amphorae, we obtain the “essence”, which is LA MADRE (mother), the base for our Vermouth. This essence ages for a few months in barrels to enhance its aromas.
Later on, this essence is blended with carefully selected wines to make our LA MADRE Vermouth.
We are grape growers, village people. It is also true to say that we are wine, we are nature and that LA MADRE Vermouth is a fusion of wine, nature and enthusiasm too. It is made with grapes, botanicals and lots of passion.
We are and we feel young, we love our traditions and gastronomic rituals. We like to chat with our friends and have a laugh.
We love the Vermouth hour leading up to lunch. We are LA MADRE Vermouth and we love going out for tapas and meeting up with friends. We love mixing.
We are adventurous, self-taught and we are from an unknown paradise called TERRA ALTA to the south-west of Tarragona, where the Mediterranean influence can be felt in all its grandeur. We are LA MADRE (mother), she who engendered this Vermouth. WE ARE VERMOUTH-MAKERS!
