The wine-making origins of the Padró family date back to the year 1886 and to the village of Bràfim (Tarragona), which was, at the time a busy agricultural hub with around 400 inhabitants.

A bitter style of vermouth, think a Spanish style of Punt E Res! Following the ageing process, a second herb formula is added, a blend of plant bark and roots found in the local area and which increase the intensity of the flavours and give the vermouth its bitter essence.
