The first Dry Vermouth was created in France in the early 19th century.
Nowadays, there are three types of Vermouth: Red, White and Dry. One distinguishing factor is their sugar content. Red Vermouth, also called Sweet Vermouth, is the sweetest; White Vermouth, a little less so. Dry Vermouth is three to five times less sweet than the first two. So, while the Red and the White are very popular as apéritifs, the Dry really delivers in cocktails and cooking.
Vermouth Routin Dry bears the name of its inventor, Philibert Routin. For more than a century, our liqueur distillers have been inspired by his original recipe, made up of a blend of plants, flowers and spices and French white wine.
