P.S Because you are making this vermouth yourself, you can add different botanicals to experiment with different flavours – and making something totally unique!

Add a little bit of spirit, and then infuse with botanicals for three days, before straining them out. And there you have it!



-300ml oxidized white or rose wine

-1 orange peel

-1 tsp Cardamom Seeds

-1/2 tsp fennel seeds

-1 tsp coriander seeds

-1 bay leaf

-1 wormwood leaf (totally optional)

-50ml Brandy (or any other white or brown spirit you have in the back of the cupboard)


-Add the citrus husks, sugar and citric acid to a non-reactive container

-Stir, cover and leave overnight

-Add boiling water

-Stir and leave to cool completely

-Strain, and bottle. Will last for up to 1 week in the fridge
