Michael Kaplan trained as a historian and has spent the last thirty years as a writer and film-maker. An abiding interest in the way food and drink shape human culture inspired him to revive the native British tradition of vermouth, both as a reflection of the richness of raw materials on this island and as a complement to the many great British gins. His mission is to make us all more aware of the riches growing beneath our feet – and what better way to showcase Britain’s botanical splendour than by putting it in a bottle?
Great British Vermouth is produced by hand, in small batches, on a farm overlooking the Forth Bridge.
It is the product of a shared enthusiasm for growing remarkable herbs and making delicious drinks.
