Vya Sweet is a blend of Tinta Roriz and Orange Muscat, and is hand infused at Quady Winery with a selection of over seventeen herbs and spices.
The botanicals in Vya Sweet come from those parts of plants where energy is concentrated: seeds, bark, and roots. These components tend to have bitter elements which in the taste of Vya Sweet are balanced with sweetness. The balance of bitter and sweet, and the warm energy from the botanicals pair fantastically with whiskey, especially with rye.
Vya Sweet makes a brilliant Manhattan. The Manhattan cocktail was traditionally made with rye whiskey but Manhattans made today are very popular with bourbon. Both types of whiskey will work with Vya Sweet. The classic proportion of sweet vermouth to whiskey in a Manhattan is 1 part vermouth to 3 parts whiskey.
