Under Current * – Continuing their series of educational events, April 9th will see vermouth fall under the downtown bar’s scrutiny. The 4-5.30 p.m. class will focus on the regional aspects and tasting notes of vermouth varietals paired with charcuterie and cheese, along with two vermouth based cocktails. Cost to attend is $55.
“Aromatized wines lost popularity in America during the latter half of last century. Though they’re still widely popular in other parts of the world, particularly Europe.” says Amy Eldridge, UC’s general manager. “Somewhere along the lines a misconception occurred concerning how much to utilize in a cocktail, how to keep them fresh (they do have a shelf-life) as well as enjoying these spirits on their own as a lovely option for a softer drink, as the Alcohol by Volume (ABV) is much lower than most spirits, yet higher than a glass of wine.”
Side note: Italian Vermouth will also be prominently featured at the upcoming Stanza, the Italian minded eatery coming together in the space left vacant by the closure of Faustina last year.

Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you! I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC. I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have written in myopic detail about the Salt Lake City dining scene for the better part of seventeen years.
I’ve worked extensively with multiple local publications from Visit Salt Lake to Salt Lake Magazine, not least helped to consult on national TV. Pause those credits, yep, that’s me! I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune. I’m largely fueled by a critical obsession with rice, alliteration and the use of big words I don’t understand. What they’re saying about me: “Not inaccurate”, “I thought he was older”, “I don’t share his feelings”.
