5 places to enjoy a glass of vermut in Madrid

1) Bodega de la Ardosa

One of the original 36 bodegas that were founded since 1892, la Ardosa in Colón, where the vermouth is on tap, is one of the few that are still in operation and the most famous one with its red facade. The tradition of the (wine)red colour of the taverns goes back to the middle of the 19th century, when they were painted this colour so that most of the (illiterate) population would be able to identify the taverns.
