Spanish journalist and foodie Carme Gasull, who contributes to TV programmes such as Barcelona’s culture, art & gastronomy programme Àrtic de Betevé, ambassador for the project “Catalonia: European Gastronomy Region 2016” and author of several books on gastronomy, highlighted our vermouths in the online food magazine 7 Caníbales.
