Founded in 1895 by lawyer Felix Marintez Lacuesta at just 21 years old, he became President of the National Association of Winegrowers also later named President of the Union of Exporters of Wines of Rioja, Spain. The business started with a small store located at 27 Vega street, the main thoroughfare of the City of Haro, where Felix sold wines that had been bought from the winegrowers of the area, adding his own branding.So important was Felix there is a memorial bust to him in the Vega Gardens in Haro. The third generation of the family remain in charge today.

Lacuesta Vermouth have been making traditional vermouth in Spain since 1937.

Cold maceration takes place using the bodega’s own recipe with the white wine base and additional alcohol. Natural aromatic plants and herbs are used, including:
Sea wormwood, Coriander, Bitter orange, Wild marjoram
Elderflower, Savory, Yarrow, Cinnamon, Peruvian bark
Fennel, Red sandal, Nutmeg, Vanilla

For 15 days the blend is mixed continuously and the result is called CONZIA, then aged for at least 3 years in used American Oak Barrels.

Due to the evaporation over this extended maturation, around 10%, the herbal notes get very concentrated building great flavour.

To create Vermouth this is then blended with:

  • White wine @ natural 13.5 % alcohol by volume.
  • Alcohol from wine distillation @ 96.3 % alcohol by volume.
  • Citric Acid
  • Sugar

In addition to this, the vermouth has 7 months ageing in new French Allier oak medium-toasted casks.

The result is a bitter, aromatic vermouth with an intense amber colour and underlying toasted aromas and the peculiar taste which recalls traditional vermouths.
