Turin Vermouth

by :: [BittersExtract]

Historically referred to as stomachic or aromatic wines, Turin type vermouth is typically a sweet or sweetened wine with a high alcohol level. The alcohol content should be 42° underproof. Grape based wines are traditional, but fruit wine is also allowed if it is declared. The sugar should be dissolved in wine as the wine itself must not be diluted.

Cinnamon

.@ryanfeeley it's soft compared to the original. Low ABV (25%) and light on bitterness. Not really a bitter for the pro, but still drinkable
