New from Albourne Estate is 40 vermouth (18% abv), a white, semi-dry vermouth named after the 40 botanicals it is infused with. The East Sussex, UK, winery uses matured base wines blended with a botanical extract, which is created from a selection of 40 herbs, spices and citrus peels and sugar. This is then fortified using spirit prior to bottling. The estate says 40 vermouth can be enjoyed on its own as an aperitif or instead of a dessert wine. Alternatively, it can be mixed with sparkling wine, as part of a cocktail, or with tonic water.

Bottled cocktails: The dos and don'ts

Pre-made cocktails have always carried a stigma, which I find odd. The romance of watching bartenders make drinks from scratch left pre-batched cocktails feeling cheap to many consumers, but lockdowns have forced this attitude to change.
