Saison - Bergamot Americano

Bergamot Americano

Melbourne, VIC

For the spring release this year the highlight is the use of bergamot citrus. Native to southern Italy and best described as somewhere between a meyer lemon and a bitter orange, it is most recognisable in Earl Grey tea. This is not quite a vermouth, more of an americano, with grapefruit blossom, olive leaf and gentian coming into the mix to build complexity. A perfect sipping drink, or to mix to make a white Americano. Saison is small batch vermouth that highlights the beauty of the Australian seasons, crafted by Melbourne chef, Dave Verheul.
