Padró & Co. Rojo Clásico: Mediterranean charmPadró & Co.
There is something very captivating about our Padró & Co. Rojo Clásico, a delightfulness that turns the custom of drinking vermouth into a veritable celebration. It’s a perfect vermouth for pairing, making a superb match for a multitude of tasty treats, from vegetarian tapas to cheese, cured meats or seafood preserves, for example. Exquisite flavours with their herbal memories and the unmistakable character of this vermouth skyrocket a simple aperitif into the realms of gourmet experience.
Macabeo and Xarel·lo grapes are harvested from the Padró family vineyards and used to make the base wine for our Rojo Clásico. After the first winter, we add our very special herbs and the resulting red vermouth then rests in barrels used previously to store sherry. The vermouth absorbs all the memories held in the wood from its previous life acquiring different nuances during the resting process, which takes between nine and twelve months.
Our Padró & Co. Rojo Clásico is a tribute to the vermouth of yesteryear, that distinctive red vermouth whose herbal, almost medicinal aromas, infused neighbourhood and village bars in Spain.
We wanted to keep the spirit of this most traditional of all vermouths alive, but in a more elegant form, taking care of even the smallest details during the vermouth-making process at our winery.
We recommend drinking our Rojo Clásico just on its own and slightly chilled, however, its versatile nature also makes it the ideal vermouth for mixing delicious cocktails; from the more classical combinations, such as the world-famous Manhattan or Blood & Sand, to more daring propositions such as our Royal Devil.
