La Quintinye Vermouth Royal
Celebrating the renaissance of Vermouth.
Inspired by the innovative garden of Versailles and reflecting the opulence and splendour of the parties at the Palace, La Quintinye Vermouth Royal is elegantly crafted using Pineau des Charentes from the region of Charente, France. Complimented with a hand-selected collection of fragrant botanicals, the La Quintinye Vermouth Royal collection is of exceptional taste and luxurious nature.
La Quintinye Vermouth Royal is a tribute to Jean-Baptiste de La Quintinye, creator of the Versailles’ kitchen gardens and Botanist for the Sun King, Louis XIV. Renowned master-blender and distiller, Jean-Sébastien Robicquet, shares his innovative spirit and dedication to excellence and blended it with the century-old expertise of the Charente terroir.
The resurgence of classic cocktails championed by leading bartenders, in which vermouth plays an integral role, twinned with the desire for more natural and better crafted products has given rise to a renewed interest and demand for the liquid. The perfect link between the world of wines and spirits, vermouth is experiencing a renaissance led by industry experts around the world. The new era of well-crafted vermouths, led by La Quintinye Vermouth Royal, will invigorate the category in gastronomic trend-leading countries and around the world.
The composition of La Quintinye Vermouth Royal is rooted in the distinctive combination of Pineau des Charentes with a selection of fine wines. Pineau des Charentes is the fruit blend of grape juice harvested in the Charente region and Cognac. Over time it develops to provide roundness, fullness and intensity through its aromas, which are perfectly balanced with the bitterness of the botanicals.
La Quintinye Vermouth Rouge, Blanc and Extra-dry share a base of carefully selected botanicals including Artemisia – an essential ingredient for all Vermouths, Angelica, Cardamom, Cinchona, Citrus Aurentium, Orris roots. It is the inclusion of the rare vine flower, and a unique selection of additional aromatic botanicals for each variant which results in their unique expression and true personality.
