Moreover, owing to customers’ high expectations regarding taste and demand for sophisticated flavors, the market observes a reviving interest in vermouth. Its versatile aromatic flavor profile makes it ideal for the expanding cocktail culture.

Regionally, sherry and madeira have seen a significant resurgence in the USA and the UK in the last few years, partially driven by restaurants’ efforts to match them with all courses of the meal.
