I’ve been very fortunate with my career to start with some great training from the likes of TGI Fridays and Mahiki. I had everything I needed to grow, I wasn’t lucky enough to have a mentor for years that could teach me anything, but being inquisitive, I’ve always found a way of learning what I wanted/needed. I quickly realised that if I wanted to know about something I’d have to find the information out myself, and this is something I’ve carried with me all my career. If I wanted to learn how to make foams, I’d buy a Foam Canister, and learn. I didn’t wait around for a bar/manager to teach me.
This mind set has lead me to wanted to learn about Vermouth- There has been no one to teach me about it and it’s something i’ve been interested in for a while. Hence I started The Vermouth Ambassador, this is to catalog my journey as I dive into the world of vermouth, it’s history, production, styles and my favourite cocktail.
This being said I have most for all fortified wine, Sherry, Port as some others, so don’t be surprised if you see some of those pop up over time!

The Vermouth Index
We’re building what we hope will become the world’s most comprehensive vermouth directory with tasting notes and as much detail as humanly possible. If you know of a vermouth you’d love to see featured (or produce one and want us to include it) just get in touch with Sam on Facebook (The Vermouth Ambassador).
