Dolin Dry Vermouth is one of their flagship products produced for well over 150 years. It is made from a base of 100% ugni blanc grapes, a white wine grape often used for cognac. It is blended with 17 herbs from the local mountains. They recommend it, of course, for a classic Martini cocktail.
MaisonDolin was founded in 1815 by then 25 year old Joseph Chavasse in Mont Blanc. Here, he felt that the herbs he needed could be found in his "alpine garden." He first began producing vermouth in 1821. The name Dolin comes from the in-law Ferdinand Dolin who married Marie Rosalie Chavasse and later named the company for himself. Eventually, the distillery was sold to Charles and Joseph Sevez of Chambery, who kept the name and the recipes intact. It moved to its present location in 1975. It remains independently run and operated to this day.
