Made from Orange Muscat, Colombard, and Valdepenas grapes, and spiced with cinnamon, gentian, galangal, and nutmeg. Tawny, moderately brown color. Deeply herbal, like mulled wine for Christmas. Pleasant, with notes of brewed tea to counter the Christmas spices.
The botanicals in Vya Sweet come from those parts of plants where energy is concentrated: seeds, bark, and roots. These components tend to have bitter elements which in the taste of Vya Sweet are balanced with sweetness. The balance of bitter and sweet, and the warm energy from the botanicals pair fantastically with whiskey, especially with rye.
