Dolin Génépi 1821 Liqueur 700ml
Country of origin: France Alcohol content: 40% ABV
A traditional liqueur made from Artemisia mutellina, this emblematic alpine plant grows above 1800m of elevation, nestled between rocks and snow fields. Made with an original 200 year old recipe, the rigorous selection and ancestral know-how of Dolin ensures the maceration then distillation of the plant produces a rich and aromatic liqueur. A génépi strand sits in the bottle slowly infusing into the green-gold liqueur.
Floral, fresh grassy notes over a delicately sweet base—the definition of alpine freshness.
Enjoy over ice, with tonic, or neat after fondue après-ski. Try in a Génépy Suisse or Piña Verde.
Dolin’s history began in 1821 with Joseph Chavasse, a liqueur producer who created a new pale style of vermouth inspired by the aperitifs of Turin. Chavasse infused a base wine of Jacquère with herbs and spices sourced both locally in Savoy and abroad. In 1830 he settled in Chambéry where his daughter, Marie Rosalie, was born. When Marie Rosalie married in 1843, Joseph passed his recipe to her husband, Louis Ferdinand Dolin, who began producing vermouth under the Dolin label.
After Louis Ferdinand passed away in 1869, Marie Rosalie took over the business and presented Dolin Vermouth at the Philadelphia Centennial Exhibition in 1876 where it won gold, the first of many awards. In 1919 Charles and Joseph Sevez bought the company as there were no Dolin heirs to inherit the family business.
The early 20th century also saw Vermouth de Chambéry granted appellation d'origine contrôlée (AOC) status, making it the only French vermouth with an official geographical indication. Dolin is still family owned today and upholds the legacy of Vermouth de Chambéry.
