Port wine is a dessert wine/ fortified wine made with grapes exclusively from the Duoro Valley of Portugal. Served as a dessert wine, it is typically sweet red wine.
Made from white grapes using the grape variety of Palomino, this Dessert wine / Fortified wine can only be made in the Sherry Triangle, and area between three towns of Spain. On fermentation, Sherry is fortified using grape brandy and is produced from dry to light versions.
TONIC WINE / VERMOUTH

The James Bond cocktail Vodka Martini (shaken not stirred) uses the Martini Rosso vermouth in its making.
