Byrrh is a rich and full-bodied fortified wine, with no added sugar - all the sweetness comes from the Muscat base they use. An absolutely delicious aperitif when served on the rocks!

Dark brown in colour with aromatic, powerful aromas of red wine, spice, berries and orange peel. Quite close in flavour to Dubonnet Rouge and neither a full-on "bitter" or a sweet vermouth - it is perfectly poised somewhere in between.

Key Flavours

"Byrrh is a great match for bourbon or Rye topped up with ginger beer, it’s bittersweet, spice and orange notes work really well in a Negroni using an aged or old tom gin."

About this product

Byrrh is aged in large barrels just as it was in the mid 19th century (it's produced in Thuir, French Catalonia). There is no added sugar - all the sweetness comes from the Muscat base wine and mistelle used in production.

Founded in 1866 by brothers Simon and Pallade Violet when the duo opened a shop in Thuir. Simon created his unique recipe, which was renamed Byrrh in 1876. The brand is now owned by Pernod Ricard.

Located in the Languedoc-Roussillon region, Caves Byrrh contains the largest oak vat in the world, with a capacity of over 1 million litres!
