Stock is a brandy distillery based in Trieste, Italy, that elaborates vermouths. The story begins in Trieste. In 1884, Lionello Stock, eighteen years old and from Dalmatia, opened a small steam distillery with his partner, Carlo Camis, in the district of Barcola.
His aim was simple: to distil the wines of neighboring areas. At that time, they were highly sought after by the French for the production of cognac when late blight destroyed the harvest of the Charente. Imported Stock Extra Dry Vermouth is of the highest quality. It’s naturally dry, and crystal clear as water. Other vermouths are made from dry wines of high sugar content that must be “bleached” to lighten their naturally yellow color. However, Imported Stock Extra Dry Vermouth is naturally clear, and naturally low in sugar.

Vermouth is the French word for artemisia from the German ‘wermüt’, ‘common, or absinthe wormwood’ in English. In Spanish it can be both vermú and vermut: all words which evoke vermouth of the classic type.
Hippocrates is said to have invented ‘Hippocras’ by macerating artemisia flowers in wine or back to ‘wermüt’, the aromatic wine of 16th century Germany.
Vermouth is a flavored fortified wine made from other base wines and suitable spices, especially Artemisia, sweetened with sugar, caramel and grape must.
