ABV: 17.8%
A blend of organically and conventionally farmed aromatic white varietals, including Gewürztraminer, Muscat, Riesling and Pinot Gris.

The wines are fortified with brandy alambically distilled in-house. The vermouth is then barrel aged in mixed French oak with an infusion of Wormwood, Sarsaparilla, Sassafras, Wild Cherry Bark, Red Cinchona Bark, Dandelion Root, Hibiscus Flower, Orris Root, Cardamom Pods, Blessed Thistle, Chamomile, Orange Peel, Verbena, Spearmint Leaf, Cinnamon Bark, Arch Angel Root, Lemon Peel, Vanilla Beans, Cacao Nibs, Coffee Beans, Walnuts, Black Mission Figs, Medjool Dates and Dried Cherries.

Ransom's expression harkens back to the flourishing cocktail culture of the Belle Époque, when joie de vivre filled the air and Vermouth made the evolutionary leap from charlatan snake oil and disguised refuse to a distinguished mainstay of the era’s most popular drinks - the Martinez, the Negroni, and across the pond, the Manhattan.

The vermouth is finally sweetened to a bittersweet balance with a proprietary blend of Muscat grape juice, maple syrup and Turbinado sugar and minimally filtered before bottling. While it's an original recipe with elements of whimsy, it remains fundamentally a classical formulation, rooted in flavours of wormwood and the quinate barks. 17.8% Alc./Vol.
