Beloved by mixologists, Dubonnet Rouge is a staple at any high-class cocktail bar. It traces its roots all the way back to 1846, when Parisian chemist and wine merchant Joseph Dubonnet developed it in order to please the palates of French soldiers battling malaria.
The drink contained quinine, which was used to treat malaria. Now, cocktail enthusiasts appreciate the complex flavors of Dubonnet Rouge, with a bold mix of orange, nuts, chocolate and coffee. Each batch is made from a proprietary blend of herbs, spices and peels and offers a sweet, sophisticated flavor.
