Umamimart is hosting another fun Umamiventure, this one is a ~VISIT TO SUTTON CELLARS~ in the Dogpatch this Sunday January 30th. It’s all about vermouth, delicious, complex vermouth (hell, Sutton’s is so good that The Alembic has it on tap). I love the event writeup (check it out here), but here’s the gist: a meet and greet with fellow guests over a Sutton and soda; a brief tour of the winery and Vermouth Lab; a comparative tasting of six vermouths with a discussion on the history of the spirit, its various styles, and in relation to other botanical alcoholic beverages; deconstructing the Sutton vermouth, and a tasting of three separate botanicals macerated in base wine alongside the finished product; discussion and Q&A about the specifics of Sutton vermouth production and bottling; and a martini hour, with two different locally produced gins mixed with Sutton vermouth for a side-by-side comparison. Seriously, that is one hell of an awesome event. 2pm. $25 advance, $30 at the door.
