What happened with tradicional Spanish Vermouth?

This past weekend I have finished with a couple of friends a bottle of Vermouth Yzaguirre…
Vermouth is the wine-related product I enjoyed the most… and also is part of an almost lost tradition. Products like Yzaguirre Reserva Especial, the excellent Perucci or the very attractive Vermouth from Cooperativa del Masroig are unfortunately a rare product not very much ";demanded"; despite it’s quite good qualities as appetizer.

What a pity :-((

It’s a tradition still in Madrid! 8-)

Every saturday and sunday, not only in the city but in almost every village around it, many people drink vermouth in a tradition called ’ir a tomar el vermú’ (vermú is the Madrid way of pronouncing vermouth ;) Anyhow, most of men drink beer or ’chatos’ (glasses of red wine), but still many women, fortunately, drink vermouth. I don’t drink vermouth ’cos I can drink a full glass of it, nevertheless I always drink a couple of sips of my friends glass.

Cheers,

Jose

I believe that in ";Xalo"; (Jalon in Castillian), close to Valencia, they still make lots of Vermouth; I even think that they have a ";fair"; where you get to taste so many of them as to finish in a fabulous good mood ;). I’ve never gone, but I have a brother in law from there.

Yes, indeed... there’s is almost every old ";Bodega"; (I mean traditional wine shops not cellars) in Valencia an old barrel of “artisanal” Vermouth…

Well, just talk with Aurelio.... I am sure he can find a bottle of Yzaguirre or Perucci....

Ermmm, and let me say that it has nothing to do with Martini, Cinzano and so on...(I mean in terms of quality)...
