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.
Gasull interviewed Eva Vicens and Josep Sucarrats, both members of the panel at last May’s Vinari Awards when our Padró i Familia vermouths received four medals: a Golden Vinari, for our Blanco Reserva (Padró & Co.) and three silver Vinaris, for our Reserva Especial (Padró & Co.), our Dorado Amargo Suave (Padró & Co.) and our Myrrha Rojo.
Eva Vicens mentions how rare it is for a vermouth to win the same award two years running (Blanco Reserva Golden Vinari 2016/2017) and she attributes this exceptional achievement to the great care with which we make our vermouths. Josep Sucarrats, on the other hand, remembers giving a very good score to our Myrrha Reserva, in the first year of the competition, and is hugely complimentary about the evolution of the brand with the incorporation of the Padró & Co. vermouths into the family.
We are delighted that our vermouths are being so well received by experts and connaisseurs in the field.
