Dry vermouth

My hoarded supply of Noilly Prat dry vermouth has dwindled down to just one remaining bottle. This is my white wine for cooking and an essential ingredient for many of the dishes I cook. Since the company changed the formula for the wine shipped to the US, the wine is now too sweet for my purpose and I must find a replacement. What do other hounds use for that essential bit of dry white wine?

    1. I just used the Martini brand vermouth in my cacciatore. Works for me.

      1. l have used Lillet blanc for many years for this exact reason.

        1. I have no trouble finding Noilly Prat dry vermouth in any liquor store I visit in a number of states, so I don't know why your supply is hoarded.

          1. re: sr44

            I think OP said that Noilly had changed the formula/recipe, and the wine is now sweeter that it used to be.

          2. Dolin Dry or Boisserie dry are the two I've found closest to the old NP. Honestly, I think both are a hair better too.

            Quite a stockpile you must've had. At this point, it's been so long since I've had the old NP that I'd almost forgotten about it!
