Aromatics of elderflower, dried tangerine, vanilla and provincial herbs leap from the glass. Reticent pear, lemongrass and honey grace the broad palate. Imbue finishes on a slightly sweet and pleasingly bitter note that lingers an incredible length of time.
Imbue Bittersweet Vermouth is our flagship aperitif. This early evening quaff was designed to be poured on some rocks and sipped. The bittersweet is a wide array of well-balanced parts with the pleasing sweetness and stark bitterness that every good vermouth has at its core.
As the ambassador of our vermouth company, we sought to make the bittersweet both complex and interesting, but without pretention. This is a product designed for all to enjoy either neat, or in a fancy-pants cocktail.

|The idea behind imbue started over a birthday dinner in the Willamette Valley. Eternal dreamers that we all are, we believed that making and blending the perfect vermouth, was well within our grasp.
After months of research and dozens of failed batches using over 60 botanicals, we arrived at a beautifully modern and strikingly delicious recipe fulfilling our desire to make something uniquely different.
At imbue we excitedly look to the future while relying on the collective experiences that have brought us here today: together we have 36 years in the restaurant industry, 15 years of bartending experience, 10 years in the wine industry, and 3 years in Portlandís Breweries. This company is a small piece of each of us. We are Derek Einberger, Neil Kopplin, and Jennifer Kilfoil.
