May is Martini Month - Shaken not Stirred!

Dry British Vermouth in a Nocturne 350ml bottle
It’s great British Martini time this May as Demijohn launch the only Dry British Vermouth produced in Scotland. As the key ingredient for the classic Dry Martini cocktail, Demijohn are delighted to introduce this one to their shelves on the British May bank holiday weekend.
Made near Edinburgh by two passionate Scotsmen, Demijohn’s Dry British Vermouth is made using 24 British herbs, including wormwood and its crisp fresh taste makes it the ideal spring drink. It is delicious drunk over ice with soda water and a twist of lemon or can be drunk in classic James Bond style or in a Demijohn Sloe Gin Martini cocktail, where you mix 1 msr Sloe Gin, 2 msrs Demijohnnie Gin to 1/2 msr Dry British Vermouth. Chill your Martini glass while you shake the ingredients together with ice. Strain into the chilled glass and garnish with a twist of lemon. As a handmade drink it has a very superior taste to large scale commercial Vermouths.
Dry Vermouth first came to the British shores when the Romans made it and called it Wermod, which is now known as Vermouth. Demijohn’s Dry Vermouth is made from 24 handgrown herbs infused in a British wine which then becomes Dry Vermouth.
Artisan Vermouth is fast becoming a ‘hot’ new drink in hip bars as drinkers like to sip on something rather unusual from Roman and Elizabethean times. As a complex drink it has so many ways to be served and is a great addition to cocktails. Let us know your suggestions! The benefit of buying from Demijohn is you can choose your size of bottle which will give the perfect amount for Martini cocktails.
Demijohn’s Dry British Vermouth is available from the Demijohn shops and online at: priced at £6.80/100ml.
Make sure you have the hip Bond style this spring with May’s Martini Month.
