Las Vermudas - An Island Vermouth Paradise

 

Sometimes you know already before visiting a place that it’s going to be good. With Las Vermudas in Gracia I had that hunch, and it was even better in reality than expected. Some places just have that effortless vibe that makes you fall head over heels in love with them.

Las Vermudas knows storytelling: this is the island escape where vermouth is king. And it’s no joke, there are over 100 different kinds of vermouths here, and a large range of amaros. They have surprisingly many options on their food menu too, we tried their bravas and salmon with mascarpone and honey. Delicious.

What particularly caught my eye were the vermouth based cocktails. Wow. The vermouth-based daiquiri with kaffir lime was mind blowing, as was the tiki-inspired tropical punch. If you would like to learn how to make your own vermouth or vermouth-based cocktails they organize weekly workshops that are very popular, so sign up well in advance!

I also strongly urge you to try their house vermouth, they make several different ones. I tried one of them and it was fantastic, and I have a bottle of it at home now too (you can buy it there). They also have a few brand canned goods you can buy and take home with you.
