Iris Dorado Vermouth
Sweet & Spicy Red Spanish Vermouth
In the mid-nineteenth century, August de Muller and Ruinart de Brimont, member of a distinguished family of Alsatian winemakers, founded the De Muller winery. Soon known for the quality of its artisan wines, the winery belonged to the De Muller family until 1995, when it was sold to the Martorell family. In 1999, the De Muller winery acquired the Cochs S.A. distillery and began producing "Vermut de Reus", which is a typical Spanish Vermouth with a tradition dating back more than one hundred years.
Today, the facilities of the De Muller winery are located in the 'Mas de Valls' estate, in Reus, southern Catalonia. Moreover, the winery also owns the 'Mas de les Pusses' estate in El Molar, a town belonging to the world-famous Priorat DOQ. As a result, the De Muller winery produces products in the Tarragona, Priorat, and Terra Alta DOs.
The Dorado is one of the most widely consumed vermouths in Reus, its place of origin.
A wine with touches of root extracts, aromatic plants and medicinal herbs, all of them typically Mediterranean.
The Dorado has a beautiful reddish-brown color with coppery highlights.
This vermouth is very fragrant, with a persistent and sweet aroma. Intense spicy smell where we can distinguish vanilla and cinnamon aromas atop a herbal background where touches of sage, chlorophyll and rosemary can be appreciated together with slight liquorice notes.
On the palate, the Dorado is intense, warm, sweet and clean. Rich spicy sensations of cinnamon and vanilla that confirm what the nose has already detected in perfect conjunction with notes of wild herbs (camomile, pennyroyal, bay lead and coriander).
