Enjoy Vermouth in Barcelona


Vermouth (vermut in Spanish) is a liquor; a kind of aromatized or flavored wine (with some roots, herbs, flowers and spices). It was first produced in Italy in the mid-late 18th century to cure some light diseases, but ended up beeing the most common aperitivo, becoming famous in Barcelona and Spain.

Vermut is more than a simple drink, it is a beautiful tradition: “Ir a tomar vermut” means getting together with your friends and loved ones, having a great time all together while enjoying a late-afternoon aperitivo and some typical side dishes like anchovies, some olives or patatas bravas. Some places also have a wide range of tapas with a modern touch.

Since it is a very popular tradition in Spain, here we are going to list some of the best places to go for a vermouth in Barcelona, so that you can make your own choice.
