Our Padró & Co. vermouths will soon be available in the United States, but before finding their place in specialised stores and cocktails bars, they have made their debut appearance at a US trade show.

These accolades are a happy addition to the medals we received in the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2017 and an affirmation of how well are vermouths are perceived outside Spain.
