When a coffee producer extracts the bean from the coffee berry, they discard what’s left, the fruit. The fruit is called cascara, it’s deep-red in colour, rich and fruity in flavour. The base of this vermouth is a fortified wine, previously used to impart flavour into casks in preparation for the final stages of malt whisky maturation. After use, this wine spirit is often sold on or even disposed of.
Blending the fortified wine base together with the cascara extract for sweetness, and then wormwood extract for bitterness which come together to complete the Discarded sweet cascara vermouth.
