Comoz Vermouth de Chambéry Blanc
Comoz // France
The House of Comoz is credited with being the first to create a "pale style" vermouth known today as Blanc or White Vermouth in 1881. Although the House ceased production in 1981, today the brand is now made by Maison Dolin, a former rival. Comoz Vermouth de Chambéry Blanc is the vermouth used in the creation of the El Presidente cocktail. Bottled at 16% ABV.
VermouthVermouth is a type of aromatized wine. It is fortified and flavored with botanicals typically featuring Artemisia absinthium (wormwood) as the primary bittering agent. In the EU, it must be made from 75% wine and its ABV is 14.5-22%. Vermouth styles range from extra dry to sweet.
"The aroma is isn't overly powerful, but piney and earthy aromas are found on the nose. There is a bit of fruit there as well. As you move on to tasting it, the vermouth is only slightly sweet. There is some tartness, but it isn't super acidic. Again you'll find the alpine notes and bitter flavors giving the vermouth some flavor. More of a low to moderate bitterness for a vermouth. The classic move here is to make an El Presidente. "
