Made close to the French alps by Maison Dolin, this is a fortified aperitif wine (mistelle) infused with yellow gentian, cinchona (quinine), orange and other botanicals to a recipe created in 1865 by Brother Raphael Bonal, a former Chartreux monk.

It can be used in place of a sweet vermouth and is traditionally served as a palate 'opener'.
