Vermut Myrrha Rojo by Padró & Co.
Myrrha, Spanish for myrrh, is a natural resin used for centuries as a perfume, incense and medicine but also used in vermouth-making. Myrrha Rojo offers a special contrast of delicate sweetness with a distinctive and slightly tangy taste.
The Padró family’s Vermut Myrrha is an exquisitely balanced Spanish-style vermouth, made following the traditional process from Macabeu and Xarel·lo grapes. It is a cuvee of dry and sweet wines (mistelas) with Padro’s unique infusions of mountain herbs and oriental spices, followed by a careful blending, rested in barrels for at least six months before bottling.
Myrrh was highly prized by the ancients, so the name and label reflect the tradition and special character of vermouths as well as the importance of the natural herb infusions used.
