The Oddbins Take

A curious, fragrant blend of the French ‘vin de liquer’, Pineau de Charentes, white wine and botanicals, there ain’t much that’s similar to La Quintinye Extra Dry.

Alter Ego: David Byrne; totally idiosyncratic that sings pretty, dry melodies over a crunchy, firm beat. Certainly no Talking Head, this is one cocktail party staple that should always Remain in Light.

Justine Sterling on, 16/4/15: "The Extra Dry, on the other hand, is ridiculously herbaceous with nasal-clearing eucalyptus flavors and an almost savory finish. It’s a terrific pre-dinner drink on its own, but it would also be great paired with a new American-style gin packed with botanicals or even a grassy tequila."

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 Extra Dry is, unusually, a blend of Pineau de Charentes, white wine and 27 botanicals and is light-bodied, with strong aromatic notes of oak, sage and lemon peel. Fantastic on its own, over ice, or as a cocktail mixer.
