Dubonnet Auction

Fortified & Vermouth Auction

Description

This lot contains two bottles of Dubonnet Wine Aperitif, a fortified wine flavoured with herbs, spices, and quinine. We estimate these were bottled in the 1970s.

Dubonnet was first sold by Joseph Dubonnet in response to a competition run by the French government who were looking for a way to encourage their Foreign Legion to drink quinine, a bitter substance used to combat malaria. Dubonnet was also known as the Queen Mother's favourite drink.

The Whisky.Auction team has inspected this lot and found it to be suitable for sale. However, please note the absence of a condition statement does not imply that this lot is in perfect condition or free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of ageing. Older bottles often contain small amounts of sediment. We cannot guarantee that the contents of this bottle will be free from the effects of age, cork taint, oxidation or other faults.
This bottle does not appear to be leaking. While we take every care to pack bottles securely we cannot guarantee that old corks and closures will not leak in transit.
