Tragically neglected, forgotten and abused for decades, vermouth is once again in the spotlight as people rediscover this wonderful, essential cocktail ingredient. This rediscovery has sparked another new trend: homemade and craft vermouth. Making vermouth can be remarkably challenging or laughably simple depending on your approach. Co-author of the only significant book on vermouth,The Mixellany Guide to Vermouth, Jared Brown has made dozens of batches of different vermouths.
