Boissiere Sweet Vermouth is made from a recipe developed in 1857, including marjoram, chamomile, coriander, and cloves.

Appealing baked apple, honey and cinnamon flavors meld seamlessly with nutty caramel flavors gained from extended sur lees aging. The creamy and seamless structure combined with balanced acidity carries these flavors through the lingering finish.
