The best vermouth in Madrid

By | 17 September, 2017 | 0 comments

Txakolí in the Basque Country, Albariño in Galicia, Fino in Andalusia… Doesn’t Madrid have a representative drink? Of course it does! There is nothing more traditional in Madrid than enjoying a nice glass of vermouth, accompanied by a tapa of course! If you want to discover the best vermouth bars in Madrid, take note.

Bodega Casas
This traditional winery opened in 1923 and it has been pouring some of the best vermouths in Madrid since then. It is owned by the grandson of the original owner and the decoration hasn’t changed in the last 100 years, giving it even more charm. Vermouth in a small glass with soda is what you will find at Avenida Ciudad de Barcelona, 23. Highly recommended!

Bodegas Ricla
This bar is another cult spot for vermouth lovers. It is located on Calle Cuchilleros, 6, in the heart of La Latina district and very close to Plaza Mayor. Beyond enjoying the wonderful vermouth that they serve, you have to check out it’s decoration, with a beautiful tin bar and brass pumps. In this unique setting, a vermouth accompanied by delicious callos will lighten up even the darkest of days. Enjoy!

Without leaving the centre of Madrid we head towards Calle Calatrava, 3, not far from the Puerta de Toledo metro station, which is where we find Muñiz, a highly popular winery amongst all those who visit El Rastro market on Sundays. After some shopping, there is nothing better than a good glass of draught vermouth. Intense, delicious and highly authentic. If you accompany it with a tapa of anchovies in vinegar or chitterlings, even better.

We now go to the Tribunal district to enjoy the fantastic Iris draught vermouth at Camacho. On Calle San Andrés, three brothers from Zamora serve small glasses of vermouth with ice, soda and a slice of orange non-stop. And what goes with it? Pickled tapas such as bonito in brine, gherkins or some Almagro aubergine. Remember, though, if you come to Camacho, the place is almost always full.

Bodegas Alfaro
In the heart of the Lavapiés district, more specifically on Calle Ave María, is Bodegas Alfaro, a traditional bar which serves some of the best vermouth in the city, in a tall glass with a slice of orange or lemon. If you’re hungry, accompany it with a tapa of cod, cured meat from León or some pickled quail which is to die for.

Now that you know where to find the best vermouth in Madrid, which one will you go to first?
