Striking feminine aromas of chamomile and orange-peel waft from the glass, with more orange, pine, and cinnamon on the palate. A broad silky texture and pleasing sweetness lend weight to the mouth feel, before ultimately giving way to the assertive Amaro-inspired, bitter finish.
Petal & Thorn is a hand crafted contradiction with elements of both beauty and beast. The feminine aromas as well as the delectably pleasing sweetness are corseted by a robust and beastly bitter finish.
In everything we do we strive to find balance; even when the beast is gnarly and the beauty is seductive as hell, weíll find a way to give you both.

|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.
