Vermouth is a fortified wine made with botanicals. VYA is a new type of aperitif vermouth, producing an exceedingly pleasant aromatic experience. Fresh and vibrant, VYA wakes up the taste buds. Either the extra dry or sweet styles can be enjoyed straight as a delicious aperitif.

VYA, Extra Dry, is made...
