Vya Extra Dry Vermouth and a well balanced dry gin are soulmates. Vya Extra Dry Vermouth brings out the soft juniper in gin; gin balances the herbs in Vya Extra Dry Vermouth. This is the way a martini was meant to taste: soft rather than harsh, refreshing rather than alcoholic. Bond may have had women and intrigue figured out, but it didn’t leave him much time to branch out at the bar. You’ll be glad you did.
