Dry Vermouth

mdmonteith Oct 20, 2012 10:56 AM

I am almost out of my very favorite dry vermouth, King Eider made by Duckhorn Winery in Northern California. Duckhorn changed ownership and has no plans to prduce a vermouth. Does anyone have a suggestion for a similiar tasting dry vermouth of the same quality?

    I haven't had the pleasure of tasting that vermouth, but if you're looking for other New World vermouths you can try Sutton Brown Label and Vya. I think both are pretty great, my preference being the Sutton. Both have more going on than your typical vermouth. My standby is Dolin, though.

        I will third the Dolin suggestion but also add that Boisserie (if you can find it) is usually much cheaper and very solid in comparison to Dolin.
