Suédois Dolin

An old time remedy

Created in the 16th century by the famous Paracelsus, this bitter digestive liqueur proved to have so many medicinal properties that in 1850, a Swedish doctor began to produce it under the name "Elixir du Suédois" (the Swedish Elixir) and used it to heal all kinds of ailments. Later, Dolin created their own formula for the miracle drink, making the Dolin Suedois elixir a reference in the field. Myrrh, gentian and orange are some of the ingredients of this bitter whose use has now gone beyond being a grandmother's remedy to being a delicious bitter used in popular cocktails around the world.

The science of herbalism gives liqueurs like the Elixir du Suédois properties that are tonic and digestive but that are above all gustatory. The maceration of a dozen botanicals in liquor gives it a powerful, bitter and grassy taste that is appreciated by connoisseurs who savor a small glass of it or even pour some on a sugar cube to help digest after a big meal. While some continue to use it for medicinal purposes, Dolin's Elixir du Suédois has gained in popularity for new more modern uses - incorporated into cocktails in fashionable bars where it is an original bitter with hints of camphor and gentian.
