Otto’s Athens Vermouth

I'm something of a philhellene (look it up), so I adore Greek history. The myths, the architecture, the heroes, Otto’s Athens Vermouth, the gods... Don't look at me like that! There's a rich heritage to this drink. Please, allow me to enlighten you.

It begins in 1834 when King Otto decided that Athens should be reborn as the Greek capital, due to his sentimental love of it's storied history. In celebration of the new era, Ioannis Vouher was tasked with creating the first Greek vermouth by King Otto, honoring ancient tradition.

As good now as we're sure it was then, this delightful crimson infusion contains wormwood, rose petals, olive leaves, oregano, thyme, citrus fruits and vanilla. I challenge you not to dream of the golden shores of Greece after a few minutes alone with this beauty.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Notes of rose petal and oregano, with some hints of citrus fruits.

Palate Pleasant sweetness is balanced with fresh lemon and a touch of vanilla.

Finish A slightly bitter lingering that's teaming with orange freshness. Delightful.

Reviews for Otto’s Athens Vermouth
Beachside Vermouth
It's hard to add much to the Chaps' tasting notes above, which are right on, but I'll try:

Softly sweet and rosy, with only the slightest wormwood bitterness; has an unusual and pleasant vegetal flavour coming from the savoury herbs (I assume) that is unique among vermouths in my experience, and which is the star of the show in my opinion. It would make an excellent summertime aperitif with a spritz of soda or tonic (just as the producers recommend). It's harder for me to imagine a use for it in your classic vermouth cocktails -- it's too sweet for a dry cocktail, and most of what's interesting would be lost in a sweet one -- but I guess that's what the professionals are for.
