The Vermouth

Twitter FB Share:

Retaking habits which should have never gone is something that people in Barcelona are doing quite a lot lately. Easy activities, adequate to everybody and all pockets in which the most important thing is to occupy our free time joining with some friends while tasting delicious homemade Vermouth paired with the famous “aperitivo”.

But… What’s the Vermouth? It’s history goes back to the Middle age in Germanic lands, where a liquor with wormwood (wermut in german) macerated with water, wine, sugar, concentrated wort and herbs (star anise, fennel…) was made. The graduation of this alcoholic drink goes from 15 to 22 degrees, depending on the elaboration process, and that is that we have different types of vermouth: Quina, the American that contains sagebrush and the Bitter one with gentian. As you can see, a whole world to discover.

When in Spain we talk about “the Vermouth time”, the truth is that in practice, the “tapas” and small dishes such as olives, chips, bread with tomato or the cans with cockles, mussels or clams with which we pair this liquor are often the real protagonists. A practice that, as our grandparents did in yesteryear all Sundays after mass, it’s usually done with friends and family in an informal way on the terrace of a bar or in someone’s home.

Barcelona has plenty of charming establishments full of history where having the Vermouth turns to be almost a ritual. Should you want to know more about this tradition and you feel like discovering and tasting with an expert the best vermouths in the city, you only need to contact the tailor-made travel agency Premium Traveler Barcelona and we will organize a private and personalized route that will undoubtedly satisfy your curious palate.
