Created in the 16th century by the famous Paracelsus, this bitter and digestive liquor showed so many virtues that in 1850, a Swedish doctor officialized it under the name of “Elixir du Suédois” and used it to treat all kinds of ailments.
Later, Dolin created its own miracle drink formula, making the true elixir of the Suedois Dolin a benchmark in the matter. Myrrh, gentian, and orange are part of this bitter whose use has long gone beyond grandmother’s remedy to invite its delicious bitterness in the most trendy cocktails around the world.
Dolin is among the few remaining independent producers of Vermouth and the last producing Vermouth de Chambéry, still made according to the principles which earned Chambéry France's only Appellation d’Origine Controllée. Their bitters are the result of an infusion of herbs, aromatic plants and fruit in neutral alcohol and wine. Made to the same base of recipes since 1821, Dolin Vermouth de Chambéry has long been the benchmark for fine Vermouth. Inventors of the Blanc (White Vermouth), Dolin is equally famous for its very light, pale Dry. In the late 19th century, Dolin won medals in Paris, London, St. Louis and Philadelphia and in 1932 earned Chambéry France's only Appellation d' Origine for Vermouth. Dolin Vermouth de Chambéry is made of fine wines and botanicals found in the Alpine meadows above Chambéry (France). Together they impart a fresh and elegant nose, with a subtle and complex palate. Ideal as an aperitif or in cocktails.
