Sometimes you simply want a cocktail stripped to the bare bones; flavor without frills, exuding the essence and complexity of the spirit itself. Nothing more, nothing less. Concocted by Vya Vermouth creator Andy Quady, this tequila cocktail mixes equal parts reposado tequila, and Vya Sweet and Whisper Dry Vermouths.
Vya Sweet Vermouth amplifies the flavors in your favorite reposado tequila, adding a honeyed sweetness that’s gently lightened by the addition of Vya Whisper Dry. The result is a harmonious expression of spirit that you can sip with a smile, knowing it’s smiling right back at you. Vya con Dios, friends.

Infused with an artistic blend of herbs and spices, Vya Vermouths are just as delightful sipping on the rocks as aperitifs as they are mixed into cocktails. Vya Whisper Dry Vermouth is a delicate rendition of Vya Extra Dry with the inclusion of fir needles for a soft, forest-like character that soothes the edges of subtle spirits. With all of its warm baking spices and honeyed citrus, Vya Sweet Vermouth conjures the cozy nostalgia of holiday treats eaten by the warmth of a fire on a cold winter’s day.
