Barbadillo, NV Ataman Vermut, Sanlucar de Barrameda
$216.60 / 6-bottle case (500mL)
Inspired by the 'Ataman' vermouths and tonic wines that have been ageing for decades in the cellars of Bodegas Barbadillo.
The 'Ataman' brand was registered by Barbadillo in 1943. At times they have asked themselves what prompted Manuel Barbadillo to use the name of a Cossack general for this vermouth, but sadly there is no answer.
What we know is that this cavalier of old has returned once more, full of life and character. Of character...and of absinth, Quassia tree bark, Seville orange, rosemary and elderberry. Incredibly smooth, complex, with a distinctive bitter finish, this is top quality vermouth.
About the producer
Barbadillo is the South and it is the Sea. It is Cadiz and it is the westerly winds. It is Sanlúcar and it is tradition. It is a centenary winery, yet it is the future. Barbadillo’s history dates back to 1821; the year in which we first began producing Manzanilla wine and since then we have done nothing but evolve as we continue to produce remarkable wines that are sure to leave their mark on all who consume them.
With our own vineyards that stretch over 500 hectares, 16 ageing wineries in Sanlúcar de Barrameda, and a red and white winemaking plant, Barbadillo is one of the largest wineries in the Marco de Jerez vineyard area. The Masters of Manzanilla.
