dolin vermouth de chambéry

dolin-2I was taken with the beautiful label on this bottle of Dolin Vermouth de Chambéry Blanc. If you're a martini fan, you'll probably be taken with it for another reason because this is apparently the best of the best. As the Dolin website claims, it's "probably the best vermouth in the world." Tasting Table New York backs them up on it and I tend to trust them. There are three variations: Rouge, Blanc and Dry -- all based on the same recipe that's been used since 1821 by this French company. It's once again available for purchase in the U.S. You can find them (on sale, no less) at
