Manuel Acha 'Atxa' Vino Vermouth Blanco, Basque, Spain
Manuel Acha 'Atxa' Vino Vermouth Rojo, Basque, Spain
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.
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.
