What to Expect

Traditionally in Spain, spicy vermouth, or vermút, has been enjoyed on Sunday mornings for before. And while today most Spaniards skip the mass and head straight for the bars, most socially acceptable choice of drink before noon continues to be vermouth.

 Join Barcelona-based guide and sommelier Luke Watson in exploring vermouth’s colorful past- the history and of course, the culture it has created. Not to mention its connection to some Spain’s most famous artists and creators.

Discover the ingredients that make this fortified wine one of the most versatile drinks in Europe and learn the tricks and tips to create your own aperitif at home! By the end of the experience you’ll have made your own homemade bottle of vermouth and be ready to share with friends (or drink on your own!)

This experience is part of the Sunday Sabor series in partnership with Atlas Obscura. Atlas Obscura’s mission is to inspire wonder and curiosity about the incredible world we all share. They started this series, and their other online experiences, because of our current need, more than ever, to stay connected—not only to our sense of wonder, but to each other.
