Destilerías Acha is one of the oldest businesses in continuous operation in the Basque Country of Spain. Destilerías Acha grew and gained recognition as one of Spain’s top distilleries until it began to fall into neglect in the 1980s, but when Gabriel Acha took control of the distillery in 2002, he brought it back to solid ground. Gabriel’s revitalization renewed traditional products like the Pacharán Acha and traditional Basque vermouths and drew inspiration from the example of founder Manuel Acha in exploring new territory. Acha’s classically Basque vermouth syncs beautifully with the broader vermouth tradition in Spain, heavily represented in Madrid, Barcelona, and the Basque Country. Acha Rojo’s traditional botanicals include licorice, wormwood, gentian, cherry, and wild herbs.

Vinification: These botanicals are macerated in aguardiente (grape brandy) – produced by Acha in a 130 year-old copper pot still – and blended into a neutral Airén wine base, before being sweetened with caramelized sugar.

Tasting Notes: Sour cherry, plum skin, and dried Mission figs, balanced by soft, herbal bitterness from distinct regional botanicals. Balanced sweetness, bitterness, and acidity.

Enjoy: Great in gin cocktails like a Negroni or Martinez, or with herbal liqueurs, agave spirits, and Sherry. Mix with amontillado Sherry and orange bitters in an Adonis cocktail. Drink on the rocks with a green olive garnish for a truly Spanish experience.

• Refrigerate once opened.
