Great British Vermouth Ltd

Great British Vermouth uses locally grown botanicals, wine and spirit to create a uniquely refreshing spirit. It’s like springtime in a glass.

Our Story

We work in a remarkable place, the idyllic Dalmeny Estate in Scotland: the flanks of an extinct volcano, with a vast variety of environments - hillside, forest, meadow, hedgerow, seashore, bog, bare rocky outcroppings. It's like having a whole country in a couple of square miles. Vermouth is all about showing off the native flavours of a place, and we have the environment here to grow - and we do - hundreds of delicious herbs, roots, and flowers.

We started in 2017 with the determination to capture all this botanical richness in a drink... but not another gin! Combining English wine and spirit with our own Scottish herbs, we create vermouth, one of the most ancient forms of drink (indeed, the word "vermouth" comes from the Anglo-Saxon word "wermod", meaning "human courage"). It’s like springtime in a glass: a chilled aperitif with food, a refreshing spritzer with tonic water, and the base for cracking classic cocktails, especially with all those amazing British gins.

We sell to people who are excited about the British countryside as a source of wonderful flavours and premium products - who look closely at what’s growing right in front of their feet and want to make something spectacular out of it. Chefs and bartenders use our vermouth as a vital ingredient in their creations, whether as a new take on the classics or the key to something entirely new.

Our vermouth is perfect as an aperitif, as a spritzer, and as a base for amazing cocktails. Keep checking back here - there's more excitement to come from us - we are testing some extraordinary new potions.
