The Netherlands

The quest for handcrafted vermouth began in Amsterdam's Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest medicinal gardens in the world. It's thousands of herbs and indigenous plants inspired the signature bittersweet blend.

During the quest for the best ingredients they hand-picked 24 botanicals including pine tops, wild thyme and wormwood. The ingredients were craftily infused in a Spanish white wine from the Airen & Zalema grape, having aged for years on oak barrels. 

The name Willem was inspired by the great explorers who shaped the 17th century into the Dutch Golden Age, embracing the unexpected. It was the unexpected that forced them to be creative and nurture their crafts. It was the unexpected that enriched their lives.

In the creation of fine vermouth certain ingredients should not be overlooked. ‘Wermoed’ is the Dutch word for Wormwood, one of the key ingredients that gives vermouth its characteristic bittersweet taste.
