Gonzalez Byass La Copa Vermouth
Vermouth Copa is based on an original recipe and design dating back to 1906 retrieved from the winery’s historic archives.
Intense spiced aroma, notes of clove and cinnamon stand out, with an elegant bitterness on the finish. On the palate it is smooth and elegant. There can be no doubt as to its origin in Jerez.
La Copa brand was one of the first to be registered by Gonzalez Byass dating back to 1884. The production follows the original recipe from 1906 and the packaging is a replica of the original label. La Copa is produced from fine Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez soleras which are more than 8 years old. A meticulous selection of botanicals is carried out, with the aim of achieving the perfect bitter-sweet, aromatic balance. The principal botanicals used are wormwood, savory, clove, orange peel, nutmeg and cinnamon. The proportion of botanicals used is a closely guarded secret, kept under lock and key in the winery.
The perfect aperitif to revive the classic ‘Vermouth moment’. Enjoy well chilled, on its own or with soda and crushed ice. Vermouth is a key ingredient in many of the best cocktail recipes.
Known more formally as Jerez de la Frontera, Jerez is a city in Andalucía in southwest Spain and the center of the Jerez region and sherry production. Sherry is a mere English corruption of the term Jerez, while in French, Jerez is written, Xérès. Manzanilla is the freshest style of sherry, naturally derived from the seaside town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda.
Historically a dry, herb-infused, and sometimes pleasantly bitter fine wine, today vermouth is indispensable to any modern mixologist. Typically vermouths are Italian if red and sweet and French if golden and drier in character.
