Odd Society Spirits Deliver
Both the Sweet and the Bitter
Odd Society Spirits Set to Release Bittersweet Vermouth
A bittersweet fortified wine, Odd Society's vermouth is developed from a classic Italian recipe, made with local Viognier grapes and sweetened with caramelized sugar. It is aromatized with a mix of twenty-five different local and international herbs and botanicals including citrus, rhubarb root, and bittering agents like wormwood, cinchona bark and centaury. The taste is rich, deep and intense. Like a life well-lived, it delivers both the sweet and the bitter to add a subtle complexity to mixed drinks.
Wanting to set this vermouth apart, distiller Gordon Glanz chose one flavour component that would truly express the terroir of the Pacific Northwest — harvested Arbutus bark from Mayne Island gives this vermouth distinctive west coast character. "We want to create spirits that represent where we live," says Odd Society Spirits co-owner and distiller, Gordon Glanz. "Everything we craft from the Bittersweet Vermouth to the Wallflower Gin is intended to evoke a sense of time and place."
