Dubonnet Rouge Vermouth

Dubonnet Rouge

Dubonnet Bottling Note

Dubonnet is a French wine-based aperitif. It is made with red wine, herbs, and spices.

The word "Dubonnet" comes from the French word for "dark brown", which is a reference to the dark colour of the original recipe. Dubonnet was created in 1846 by Joseph Dubonnet, a French chemist. Joseph Dubonnet's original recipe used quinine, which was added for its medicinal properties. The quinine gave Dubonnet its distinctive bitter flavour, which many people enjoy today.

Dubonnet was said to be the late Queen Mother's favourite tipple.

For an extra touch of class, why not follow Del Boy Trotter's example and order "Garçon, dos Dubonnet pore favore. Danke schon."?

Dubonnet & lemonade with ice and lemon, my all-time favourite ...
I've enjoyed Dubonnet's refreshing taste since the 1970s, and was so disappointed when it became 'unfashionable' so pubs and restaurants stopped stocking it, and eventually supermarkets too. (Whenever I have enquired about it on a night out, most bartenders have never even heard of it, which is such a shame.) A few years ago, however, I was delighted to find that Master of Malt stock Dubonnet and have, therefore, been purchasing it with this Company ever since. Orders arrive very quickly and always within incredibly protective packaging.

Delicious, fruity, tannic, refreshing, berries.
After touring through a wide variety of vermouths, I found Dubonnet by chance and gave it a try. My first impression (mixed) altered so that I now have a bottle permanently available in the house, the only such drink to get that status. Dubonnet is delicious on its own, chilled and has a lovely balance of berry fruit sweetness followed by a tannic and bitter effect. It´s very well balanced which is why it has been so popular and also why it has been overlooked by those who want to try something more "interesting". I´ve tried those and liked them but keep coming back to Dubonnet because it hits the spot, I don´t get tired of it and it makes lovely cocktails such as the Arnaud´s Special and as an alternative to red vermouth in a Rob Roy. Dubonnet is way nicer than a lot of boring red wine and never a gamble

Drink it and live.
I have been drinking this since 1955 as did the late queen mother and her two daughters. The palate and longevity of the two Elizabeth's does justice to this which I drink with an equal portion of good gin and two cubes of ice (which I make in ice cube bags with the juice of two lemons to 300ml water). Margaret was an addict to nicotociana so despite the medicinal benefits of Dubonnet that lovely and musically talented lady succumbed too early.

Gin & Dubonnet with a twist
Yes, it's a hard to find since pernod-ricard has decided it doesn't worth a dime to keep it on the market - especially in France - Shame on that holding and thanks to MoM to keep a bottle totally new for me but tasty anyhow.

Have been drinking Dubonnet (with gin or bitter lemon) since I was 15 and still think it's the best, most refreshing aperitif nearly 50 years later. I can't understand why it is so hard to find especially in France.
