The particular quality of Vermouth de Chambéry was first identified in 1821 by Joseph Chavasse, whose son-in-law Ferdinand Dolin inherited the recipe and the now eponymous company. Dolin Vermouth was winning medals in Philadelphia, St Louis and London in the late 19th century, and still remains the benchmark for fine French vermouth.
A red vermouth from independent producer Dolin, based in Chambéry, the only region in France to have received an appellation d'origine contrôlée (controlled designation of origin) for its vermouths.
Rich and inviting from first opening Dolin Rouge teams fresh grassy notes with deeper spices. Offering a complex palate of both fresh citrus flavours and the tempering influence of cinnamon and Szechuan pepper. Sweetness is the overriding flavour of this drink but there is a subtle spiciness which adds more to the overall flavour. Whether mixed into a traditional cocktail or enjoyed on ice, Dolin Rouge exudes class and refinery.
