Dolin Vermouth de Chambéry Dry
Dolin has long been considered the benchmark for fine Vermouth and is one of the last remaining independent producers. Recognised as the creator of Vermouth de Chambéry, Dolin has cooked up the same recipes in the Alpine hills of Chambéry since 1821. They continue to make their authentic products according to the principles and recipes that made Vermouth de Chambéry so famous; production in Chambéry itself, the maceration of real plants rather than pre-prepared infusions, and the unique addition of sugar as opposed to other sweetening products. These are remarkable Vermouths with freshness, purity and complexity. The Dolin Dry Vermouth is made from a unique blend of 15 botanicals and spices that macerate in a specific white wine - Ugni Blanc- like the other Dolin vermouths. An essential cocktail ingredient, this iconic vermouth was immortalised by James Bond and his Dry Martini, a very simple and absolutely elegant cocktail. Dolin Dry Vermouth is still acclaimed by bartenders and mixologists from around the world for its subtlety and elegance. Slightly sweet, with a golden tint, the Dolin Dry has a generous and rich nose with hints of citrus bark underscored by the freshness of menthol and balsamic notes. Almond and stone fragrances dominate the slightly bitter citrus base and bring balance to this lively and fine dry Vermouth de Chambéry.
