EP 56 - Vermouth and Beyond!
Erik Ginther, Senior Portfolio Manager, Fratelli Branca San Francisco joins the lushes this week to talk about all things Vermouth. We talk about the category of Vermouth from how it's made to where it came from and what makes it special. It's history, popularity in Europe and the rising interest in the United States. We also dispel a few misconceptions from our childhood about that dusty bottle in grandma's cabinet.
As the company name suggests, we spend a good lot of time talking about the love-it-or-hate industry cult favorite Fernet Branca. We also get seriously off track with a questionable Bob Ross discussion. Tune in to learn a few things and laugh along with us as we explore Vermouth. This is definitely not your grandmother's vermouth show!
