Eleven English and Welsh wineries that make their own spirits and vermouth


Also in 2018, boutique Sussex vineyard and winery Albourne Estate launched a vermouth. 

Called ‘40’ in honour of the 40 different botanicals in the blend, the 18% ABV semi-dry vermouth was created by owner Alison Nightingale, who was keen to put an English twist on an Italian classic.

The vermouth is made from matured Albourne Estate base wines, which are blended with the botanical extract and sugar.

The result, according to Nightingale, is a “complex and elegant” drink that can be enjoyed on its own as an apéritif, with tonic, with sparkling wine or in a cocktail.

Alongside its still and sparkling wines, last year Albourne also unveiled what it claims is England’s first frizzante wine made from Bacchus grapes from the 2018 vintage.
