Flavorful, Versatile, Crafted
Welcome to 40 Acres Blending Co. The world's first black owned, small batch vermouth company. We are very excited to introduce our first product, Moxie Mule Vermouth Bianco. Stay stuned for more exciting products and private classes coming soon!
After completing an internship in wine production at JM Cellars and sparking an interest in the vermouth culture of Spain, Sean Perryman turned to the hobby of vermouth making. Vermouth blending seamlessly combined his obsession for craft cocktails and wine production. What started as a passion project quickly catapulted into a business venture after receiving positive feedback from friends, family and the bartending community. Founded in 2023 by Sean Perryman, 40 Acres Blending Co. just so happens to be the world's first black owned vermouth company.
We have begun our launch with Moxie Mule Vermouth Bianco. This bianco vermouth is blended with the intention to be used as a versatile or simple vermouth. Enjoy it chilled neat, as a light and bright spritz, or used as an ingredient to balance out a cocktail.
You can purchase our vermouth by the bottle or on tap as an unexpected addition to your restaurant, bar, or brewery's tap selection. We also offer private blending/tasting sessions, as well as events and parties. Contact us to learn more about all our offerings!
What is Vermouth?
Vermouth is a dynamic beverage that consists of aromatized, fortified wine blended with botanicals. Moxie Mule is a sweet, bianco style vermouth incredibly versatile depending on the spirit you mix it with. It’s delicious served straight over ice, as a spritz or as a dynamic addition to a cocktail. Moxie Mule has high tasting notes of vanilla, citrus and jasmine. Perfect for any season depending on how you use it!
It started as a medicinal drink in Germany in the 26th century and has always consisted of one key ingredient: wormwood. However, it wasn't until the 18th century when cafe culture took off in Italy, that vermouth developed into the delicious apertivo we know it as today. There are many different styles of vermouth and they vary based on the region they are from and ingredients used to blend them. Moxie Mule Vermouth is inspired by the sweet bianco vermouths in Southern Spain, often served as an afternoon beverage with a citrus twist and side of olives as a precursor to your next meal.
