The finished vermouth contains 75-80% wine, which is much more than most industrial aromatised "wines".

Fruit Puree and Premixes

This is the supreme result for the preparation of frozen cocktails and long drinks that would otherwise end up being off flavoured and watered. MIXER® is now the trademark symbol of the entire fruit puree mixes market in Europe because it was the first brand in the world that has launched this product category. MIXER® is also famous for its speed bottle with patented coloured pourer dispenser that allows perfect dosage of the product (1 oz. for each squeeze) and its excellent preservation due to the sealed freshness closure and the seal under the pourer.
MIXER® puree mixes are fruit preparations for professional use containing the equivalent of 100% fruit purees cropped and concentrated right at the moment of perfect ripeness. They can be either used to boost and balance the fresh fruit when mixed or they can be used to replace fruit when not available. Because of their thickness and high quality MIXER® purees are considered to be the best alternative to fresh fruit for the preparation of cocktails, smoothies or slushes or even for hot drinks or dessert.
