Lejon Vermouth is both fortified and aromatized. The base white wine is fortified by adding alcohol with the addition of neutral grape spirit and is aromatized with essences of nutmeg, orange peel, cloves and cinnamon. Our secret recipe is what gives Lejon our unique character. Vermouth was created by an Italian in the late 18th century by an Italian, originally promoted for its health benefits derived from its infused herbs. Lejon is carefully made with several infused herbs. Lejon vermouths are available in Sweet and Extra Dry to make the perfect Manhattan or martini.
