Made in the heart of the vineyards of Charente, La Quintinye Vermouth Royal is an opulent French vermouth.
It is a unique composition of Pineau des Charentes – a blend of fresh grape juice and Cognac – that brings a full-bodied intensity to each of its three expressions: Rouge, Blanc and Extra Dry.
The range shares a common aromatic palette made up of 12 plants and spices, including artemisia (essential in Vermouth), vine flower (Maison Villevert’s signature), angelica and iris root – all typical of the Charente region.
La Quintinye Vermouth Royal’s elegant bottle is adorned with a full-length portrait of Jean-Baptiste de La Quintinye, botanist to King Louis XIV. This visionary man, born in Charente in 1624, was commissioned by the Sun King to create the famous kitchen gardens at the palace of Versailles.

How We Like To Enjoy
We have particularly enjoyed sipping Royal Rouge and Royal Blanc on ice, something of a revelation in taste. A Negroni made with Royal Rouge and a Dry Martini with Royal Extra Dry bring an exceptionally refined taste to these classic cocktails elevating them (quite rightly so) into their prestigious titles of Negroni Royal and Dry Martini Royal.
