La Quintinye Vermouth Royal – Leading the Renaissance of Vermouth
Born in the House of Villevert’s vineyards, at the heart of the Charente region, La Quintinye Vermouth Royal blends the assets and century-old know-how of it’s Royal terroir’s to the expertise of Jean-Sébastien Robicquet, renowned Master-Blender and distiller.
La Quintinye Vermouth Royal is a tribute to Jean-Baptiste de La Quintinye, creator of the Versailles’ kitchen gardens and Botanist for the Sun King, Louis XIV. Inspired by the innovative garden of Versailles and reflecting the opulence and splendour of the parties at the Palace, La Quintinye Vermouth Royal is elegantly crafted using Pineau des Charentes.
The composition of La Quintinye Vermouth Royal is rooted in the distinctive combination of Pineau des Charentes and a selection of fine wines with the botanicals. Pineau des Charentes is the blend of fresh grape juice and Cognac left to age in oak barrels for at least a year till it develops its roundness, fullness and intensity through its aromas, which perfectly balance with the bitterness of the botanicals. La Quintinye Vermouth Royal is the only vermouth starring Pineau des Charentes.
La Quintinye Vermouth Rouge, Blanc and Extra-dry share a base of 12 carefully selected botanicals including Artemisia – an essential ingredient for all Vermouths with Angelica, Cardamom, Cinchona, Citrus Aurentium, Orrisroots. It is the inclusion of the rare vine flower and a unique selection of additional aromatic botanicals for each variant, which results in their unique expression and true personality.
Inexorably linked to Jean-Baptiste de la Quintinye, each bottle of La Quintinye Vermouth Royal bears the portrait of this visionary character with his magnificent gardens in the background. Also adorning each bottle is an intricate Fleur de Lys design, the symbol of French Royalty, and the bottle’s label is illustrated with botanical drawings in a 16th century style.
