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

Gusbourne x Asterley Bros

South London based distillers Asterley Bros have teamed up with Kent-based Gusbourne to produce a range of vermouths.

The distiller’s Dispense Amaro is based on a 17th century recipe from the London Dispensatory, combining Gusbourne Estate Pinot Noir, spirit made from molasses, and an organic neutral grain spirit.

It is flavoured with 24 botanical including English hops, orange, grapefruit, lime, vanilla, apricots, raisins, dates, basil, rosemary, kaffir lime, ginger, lemongrass, coriander, cardamom, gentian, devil’s claw, rhubarb, chickweed, hyssop, milk thistle, liquorice, myrrh and angelica.

The Estate Vermouth, also made with Gusbourne’s Pinot Noir, is produced in the Italian ‘rosso’ style, and infused with 31 botanicals including orange, cacao, rosemary and wormwood.

Asterley also makes a dry vermouth, combining English white wine and grape spirit, infused with 28 botanicals including rose, cardamom, rosemary, savory, wormwood, cinchona and yarrow.
