What makes Vya Sweet Vermouth perfect for this Pecan Pie Manhattan cocktail recipe and other craft cocktails? This artisan vermouth is crafted by seasoned winemakers and is designed to be appreciated in the same way other fine wines are: for aromatics, balance, flavor and aftertaste. Vya Sweet Vermouth is made in an Italian style with a proprietary blend of Orange Muscat and Tinta Roriz, then infused with baking spices like orange peel, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg, and barrel aged to add complexity. It’s a symphony of spice and wine that can be enjoyed on its own over ice, as well as mixed in with whiskey, rye or bourbon for a smooth and spicy Manhattan.
