7 MARES Vermouth

The concept for 7 MARES Vermouth comes from two Portuguese traditions. On the one hand, our fortified wines, which epitomise the light and the terroir of the motherland. On the other, the history of Portugal’s navigational discoveries, the open horizons, the desire to depart and the will to return home. Grapes, wines, aromatic herbs, spices, salt and sea breeze. 100% natural products, powerfully combined in a bottle with a cork. This is the adventure of 7 MARES Vermouth. Read more.

What's special about it

Its aromas are obtained only from natural products in a delicate balance between sweetness, acidity, texture and subtle bitterness. It will offer you moments of lingering pleasure in the mouth – reminiscent of sea, sun and light. Perfect on its own, chilled or with ice, it is also an excellent addition for sophisticated cocktails.

Enjoy it

At a time when the art of bartending is establishing itself, with growing interest in local and natural products, 7 MARES the Portuguese Vermouth asserts itself as a natural hand-crafted drink, and is a perfect addition to the cocktails made by the new generation of bartenders.

Bottle

The wine comes in 750ml bottles with the new Helix packaging system, which combines a classical Bordeaux glass bottle with an ergonomically-designed cork, enabling the opening of the bottle by hand, with no need for a corkscrew. This system is a project by two global market leaders in wine packaging, the Portuguese cork producer Corticeira Amorim and the American glass producer O-I.
