Discarded Story

When a coffee producer extracts the bean from the coffee berry, they discard what’s left, the fruit. The fruit is called cascara, it’s deep-red in colour, rich and fruity in flavour. The base of our vermouth is a fortified wine, previously used to impart flavour into casks in preparation for the final stages of malt whisky maturation. After use, this wine spirit is often sold on or even disposed of.

How it's made

The fortified wine base is blended together with the cascara extract for sweetness, and then wormwood extract for bitterness which come together to complete our cascara vermouth

Tasting Notes

Bright cherry notes, with rich cacao nibs, roasted coffee and merlot, rounded off with candied figs and cinnamon.
