Lustau Vermut Dry joins the range of unrivaled vermouths that the brand initiated in 2015, when it introduced its Lustau Vermut Rojo, the first modern day vermouth made with Sherry wine. Soon after accompanied by Vermut Blanco and Vermut Rosé. As of this October, the range is completed with the launch of the new Lustau Vermut Dry. The base wines of each of these vermouths are a major differentiator in terms of quality when compared to other vermouths in the market.
