A silver birch wine fermented from the sap of the trees that surround is fortified and infused with a blend of herbs and spices, including wormwood. Blackdown Silver Birch claims to be England’s first white vermouth.
The silver birch sap is harvested from the tress between March and April when the sap is rising during the early spring. In 2015, Blackdown tapped over 300 trees, with an average tree providing 5 gallons a day collecting over 1,500 gallons.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 21/01/2016

Appearance:

Clear, very faint straw yellow, virtually crystal clear.

Aroma:

Herbal, with whiffs of oxidised wine/vinegar, wormwood, silver birch and chamomile.

Taste:

Herbal, piney and grassy with wormwood and subtle white pepper spice.

Aftertaste:

Grassy finish with pine and wormwood.

Overall:

It’s a vermouth but not as you know it. This English vermouth is made with silver birch syrup and is certainly unusual with herbal, wormwood, grassy and chamomile notes.
