The Oddbins Take

Straddling the confluence of floral and herby and dry and sweet, La Quintinye is like a romantic bridge that’s perfect for strolling across at dusk. Alter Ego: Ray Davies; It’s definitely Kinky (not like THAT… mind in the gutter, you lot) and it is just perfect for watching a Waterloo Sunset. Even when it’s a touch sweet, it still retains an attractive dryness and earthy, poetic quality.

Justine Sterling on FoodAndWine.com, 16/4/15: "The Blanc is floral, lightly sweet and a touch bitter—perfect for Vesper-style Martinis, which require a fruitier, full-bodied vermouth."
The ‘La Quintinye’ range of Vermouths comes from Euro Wine Gate – the makers of our G’Vine gins and Excellia tequila. Leading the way in the vermouth revival, which owes a lot to the demand for classic cocktail ingredients, La Quintinye Blanc is, unusually, a blend of Pineau de Charentes, white wine and 18 botanicals has gentle notes of grapes, white flowers and more earthy, herby notes. Just a touch off-dry, it makes for a very pleasant aperitif.
