Vya Extra Dry Vermouth by Quady Winery
California, United States
Relax, sip, shut your eyes, and be transported to a mountain meadow on a river of dry white wine, Orange Muscat, angelica, orris, linden, lavender and more…
Made in California’s San Joaquin Valley from a blend of dry white wine that includes Orange Muscat, Vya Extra Dry is carefully hand infused at Quady Winery with a selection of over fifteen dried herbs. In Vya Extra Dry the flowers and leaves of the plants are used for the infusion, whereas in the Vya Sweet, the roots and seeds of different plants are used. The flowers and leaves of different plants make Vya Extra Dry powerfully herbaceous, crisp, and refreshing. A few of the herbs used include lavender, linden, sage, orris, alfalfa, and angelica.
Fresh and aromatic, Vya Extra Dry wakes up the taste buds, and makes a wet martini or an aperitif on the rocks that livens up the end of the day.
Wine Enthusiast: 90 Points
Made with a California wine base, this pale straw-colored vermouth has a ripe tropical fruit nose that hints at banana. The tropical fruit is echoed on the palate, fading into subtle, earthy sage.
For a delicious Vya Martini:
Combine 2 parts Conniption gin with 1 part Vya Extra Dry and a dash of orange bitters (optional) in a stirring glass with ice. Stir, strain into a chilled cocktail glass, and garnish with a lemon twist.
