What is Discarded Vermouth?

Cascara is a fruit, inside that fruit are coffee beans. Throughout coffee production these beans are harvested to create that delicious hot beverage known as coffee that gives us a reason to get out of bed every morning.

However, The fruit part is not needed. As a result, its discarded. Discarded Spirits co have taken this discarded coffee production bi-product and used it to create a delicious sweet vermouth!
