Together Michael Kaplan, who trained as a historian and Hamish Martin who has had a life-long involvement in the wine and spirits trade with a deep passion for herbs, which he grows naturally at the Secret Herb Garden near Edinburgh. With its vast range of environments; uplands, forest, pasture, seashore, and riverbank, Britain enjoys a wonderful variety of wild and naturalised herbs.

A great number of these have health-preserving properties, so it is little wonder that this country has a deep tradition of herbalism, going back thousands of years. When the Romans brought winemaking to Britannia, they provided the perfect medium for capturing all this herbal richness: the infusion that the Old English named wermód – and that we call Vermouth.

Great British Vermouth’s Wermod is produced by hand, in small batches, on a farm overlooking the Forth Bridge.
