Dolin Vermouth de Chambéry Rouge
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.
Dolin vermouths are made with an above average proportion of wine, in which a secret recipe of locally grown herbs and plants are macerated before being sweetened with real sugar. All of this is in contrast to many big name vermouths, making this stuff pretty awesome.
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.
