When the earliest vermouth recipes migrated to Catalonia from Italy in the mid 1800s, they collided with a unique terroir, agriculture, and way of life. Yzaguirre Vermouth emerged from this union in 1884 as the most distinguished of its kind. Its artisanal roots and long-kept secret recipe redefine the meaning of exceptional aperitif.
