Based on a secret 1813 recipe, Noilly Prat Original Dry is beautifully crafted in the South of France using the finest white wines. Some of these wines are selectively aged outdoors in oak casks exposed to the natural elements. An aromatic blend of herbs and spices (including Roman Chamomile and Gentian from France, Nutmeg from Indonesia and Bitter Orange from Tunisia) gently infuses the wines to create a unique bouquet and taste. Delicious served chilled on its own with a twist of lemon, it is the perfect vermouth for classic and contemporary mixology.
|Wine maker notes
|Once some of our special grapes have left the vineyards of the region surrounding Marseillan, the complex and elaborate process of producing Noilly Prat Original Dry involves 4 principal stages overseen by the Maître de Chai. These include the indoor ageing of sweet wines in the Chai des Mistelles and the outdoor ageing of the regional grape varietals, picpoul and clairette, in what is known as L’Enclos. Once these wines are blended they are transferred to the indoor oak vats held in La Salle de Secrets where the process of maceration begins.
