A Collector’s Item
A new British made vermouth is being launched by the award-winning team behind The Ethicurean Restaurant in Wrington, Bristol.
Frustrated by the absence of a vermouth that they were happy to serve in the restaurant, the team set about making their own. No strangers to challenge, the team (winners of the alcohol category in the Young British Foodie Awards) embarked on a five year adventure until they settled on the complex blend of botanicals, wine and caramel to create a house vermouth. Such was demand at the restaurant, the obvious next step was to batch produce and bottle the vermouth to enable it to be enjoyed at home and distributed to like-minded, bars and restaurants.
They hit on the name The Collector, in reference to those “relentless in their endeavour for the particular”. It is a collection of twenty botanicals including herbs grown in the restaurant’s acclaimed walled garden, as well as wild ingredients from beyond its boundaries, blended with white wine and caramel made in the restaurant kitchen and is one of just three British made Vermouths available.
This addition to the bar presents the opportunity to bring new character to traditional cocktails or to simply serve vermouth as a sipping drink, on ice with a fragrant bay leaf.
The Collector will be released early November 2014 and available through independent retailers, bars and restaurants in a 70cl bottle.
