Italian style bitters
Neither French nor Italian!
In 1821, Dolin was situated in the kingdom of Piedmont-Sardinia. Ferdinand Dolin, always looking for the latest trends, was inspired by the fashion for Italian bitters to develop his own recipe.
These bitter drinks, originally prized for their medicinal properties, have become all the rage as an aperitif.
This is how Dolin Bitter was born, made from botanicals and spices such as bitter orange, gentian and cinchona steeped in wine for many weeks.
It is this type of liqueur that is used to make Spritz and that gives it that special bitter taste.
