Zero Cellar door's range of premium products includes the spirit brand Palermo.
The Palermo range has a 30-year history from Bardinet La Martiniquaise which is France’s second largest spirit manufacturer of Bordeaux.
The Palermo Rosso is described as a “revitalising non-alcoholic cocktail or aperitif with surprising aromatic herbs flavours."
The master blender says that: “Palermo Rosso gives a taste with all the warmth of Italy. Rosso can be enjoyed straight over ice with the zest of either lemon or orange. Or experiment with the countless varieties of the culture of modern cocktails combining fruit, herbs and sparkling mixers.”
The range is very close to an original vermouth in terms of taste, with the Rosso having bitter sweet notes of aromatic plants, while the Bianco has surprising notes of its natural botanicals with a spicy undertone."
