A historic vermouth brand, Dolin has been made to the same recipe in the Alpine hills around Chambéry since 1821, and was awarded the only Appellation d'Origine for vermouth in 1932. The Chambéry style flourished in the 19th and early 20th century, but Dolin is now the last remaining producer of Vermouth de Chambéry.
30 to 40 spices and botanicals are used to make the famous Dolin red vermouth: coriander, hyssop, rhubarb and curacao are just some of those in our closely-guarded secret recipe. This French vermouth can be served as an aperitif on ice, a traditional before dinner drink in France but can also be a tasty ingredient in many cocktails, such as the famed Negroni and Manhattan.
This vermouth has a lustrous coppery colour, gentle aromas of fruit compote, of prunes and walnuts with grassy notes, tempered by spicy aromas like Szechwan pepper... then aromas of almond, citrus, pear and cinnamon with gingerbread, tobacco, oregano and hyssop notes. This very rich bouquet is tempered by a subtle bitter base wine.
