Les Cousins Vermouth

MXN $900

Produced with: Carignan and Garnacha

Region: Priorat, Spain

You’ll taste/smell: Starting from an organically produced rosé wine, the cuvée then undergoes 6 months of maceration with fresh wild herbs such as rosemary, thyme, lavender, fennel, almond, cardamom, citrus peel, and wormwood (artemisia absinthium), which is what gives it the characteristic bitter point. This is also aa unusual vermouth because it has no alcohol or sweet concentrates added, so it tastes drier than other traditionally produced vermouths.

Good to have it with: by itself as in aperitif, or to accompany Spanish tapas

Description

Details: Les Cousins Vermouth

Donzell is the name given to wormwood (artemisia absinthium) in Catalan and is the soul of vermouth. It is an essential ingredient in these types of drinks. Using this gives the drink a greater or lesser amount of bitterness depending on the amount used during production. Wormwood also has medicinal properties that stimulate appetite and aid digestion.
Les Cousins Donzell is made from a rosé wine of organically cultivated Cariñena and Garnacha that macerates in a wooden foudre for about six months with a selection of local herbs like rosemary, thyme, fennel, and lavender along with citrus peel and cardamom. This is an aromatic wine, with a refined and elegant flavor that contains absinthe, which adds that special bitterness and makes it reminiscent of vermouth, the leading aperitif.
In its own way, Les Cousins Donzell functions as an “unusual vermouth”, because it has no alcohol or sweet concentrates added, yet it is a nod to the well-known social trend of having an aperitif. It is important to remember that the word we use for this type of drink, vermouth, derives from the German word Wermut, which means wormwood (or donzell in Catalan). An exquisite return to the roots with a touch of modernity and elegance.
