I n the mid-19th century the fortified wine resulting from a craft blend of wines, mistelles, herbs, plants and roots was made for the first time in Spain. In essence, the first vermouth.
The company's founding father, Augustus Perucchi, was responsible for pioneering this blend in 1876, according to the oldest records kept at the Chamber of Commerce of Barcelona.
The perfect combination of carefully selected delicate white wines and a list of more than 40 fruits, roots and natural herbs. Slightly sweet bouquet and a very mild flavour, fruity and a subtle bitterness...vinoole.com
It is the star of the vermouths that are currently available; a fortified wine well matured in casks, made of a blend of quality wines with a mix of botanicals comprising more than 50 ingredients...vinoole.com

I ’ m not going to repeat how good it is; I can just vouch for its pure taste that lingers on the following day. A good and healthy drink with a fabulous flavour. A superb vermouth...uvinum.es
In the mid-19th century, Augustus Perucchi made a vermouth resulting from a craft blend of wines, mistelles, herbs, plants and roots for the first time in Spain.
Almost a century and a half later, hardly anything has changed between the four walls of the Perucchi winery.
The quality of Perucchi vermouth remains unchanged thanks to the traditional processes of maceration, crushing, blending, pressing and filtering, followed by ageing in centuries-old casks.
Just the slightest variation in its more than 50 ingredients would totally unbalance the harmony of a beverage of such characteristics that has been maintained over the years for more than a century.
The exquisite choice of herbs, plants and roots harvested when they are just ripe ensures that their unmistakable aromas and flavours can still be perceived.
The same ageing tanks and vats used since the foundation of Perucchi sit in stark contrast with the very latest bottling and labelling technologies.
The bottle’s stopper is made from cork trees from the Alt Empordà region and the wooden top of beech from the county of Osona.
