Did you know that Denmark is the happiest country in the world, according to the UN World Happiness Report? This is just one of the many interesting traits of this country of 5.6 million people. The Padró & Co. team flew across Europe to make their first appearance in Denmark at the Vin & Vin Wine Festival in Middelfart. It was a wonderful experience, and an opportunity we just couldn’t miss!
Middelfart is a small city located on Fionia island (the second largest island in Denmark). Visitors to the festival were able to taste 3 of our premium vermouths: Rojo Clásico, Blanco Reserva and Dorado Amargo Suave, discover the fine differences and special character of each vermouth, as well as participating in an exchange of ideas on the best way to drink vermouth.
Another remarkable fact about Denmark is that every year the country receives almost 5 million visitors – almost as many as the entire Danish population. So it’s hardly surprising that the Danish people appreciate traditions from other countries, such as Spanish tapas for example: the perfect complement to our Padró & Co. which are delicious as an aperitif on their own (be sure to put the Blanco Reserva in the fridge ahead of time), or on the rocks with an olive perhaps and also, last but not least, in your favourite cocktail.
You can find cocktail suggestions here on our webpage but we are open to suggestions from around the world. Don’t forget to accompany the vermouths with a selection of tapas… or even a little cheese.
