Doragrossa Spirits & Liqueurs
Doragrossa liqueurs, vermouths and spirits. A journey through time, to rediscover flavours once thought lost forever.
A delicious taste of our history, in search of its roots, when Turin’s know-how in mixing herbs and spices and in “running stills” was famed throughout
Europe. This heritage of knowledge and tradition has been preserved and passed down over the years to the present day.
This is where Doragrossa's values, production ethos and recipes have their roots.
From the best part of the rhizomes of rhubarb, a plant with unique aromatic qualities whose properties have been known and appreciated since time immemorial. In this recipe, the elegant and delicately bitter notes of the rhubarb combine with the sweet hints of spices, creating a smooth, enticing flavour and a rich bouquet of fragrances, bringing back long-forgotten memories of old drugstores or the boiled sweets our grandmothers used to keep in glass jars in the cupboard. Carefully crafted, completely natural, free of preservatives and colouring agents.
Citrus Myrtifolia, commonly known as Chinotto, is a wonderful little citrus fruit that grows primarily in small agricultural areas lying close to the Tyrrhenian Sea. Its intrinsic qualities are well known and, if skilfully worked, this fruit can offer an extraordinary combination of distinctive aromas and perfectly balanced sweet and bitter flavours that are delightful on the palate. Our liqueur is crafted with the greatest care and is completely natural.
A delicate reminder of spring blooms, of going through meadows in search of herbs and flowers, for cooking or for the simple pleasure of the senses, it is moderately alcoholic, sweet and of immediate organoleptic reading. Its traits take us back to the origins of the great Italian liqueur tradition and to a great classic of international mixing: the Aviation cocktail.
Doragrossa Curaçao Mediterraneo
Along the lush coasts of the Mediterranean Sea, different varieties of citrus fruits, including oranges, bergamot and the magnificent cedar, best express their aromatic profiles. Our unique Mediterranean Curacao is born from the combination of the best citrus fruits with typical herbs and spices, with a pleasantly sweet, citrusy and floral taste, nicely integrated with the alcoholic structure of an excellent quality wine brandy.
Doragrossa Amaro di Torino
In the mid-19th century, with the advent of the modern pharmacopoeia, the classic "medicinal” Amaro gradually abandoned its original curative function becoming an alcoholic beverage for drinking enjoyment, at the time jokingly referred to as the "medicine of healthy men".
This delicate alpine-style Amaro is invigorating and digestive. It expresses the powerful character of rhubarb and gentian, the balsamic notes of juniper enriched by numerous other herbs such as tansy, liquorice and vanilla.
Doragrossa Rosolio di Torino
Listed among the city's liqueur specialities as early as 1712, Rosolio became Turin’s pride and joy and as such was mentioned in various publications, both Italian and foreign. A prestigious and exclusive liqueur, it established itself as the classic “welcome drink” and was commonly served by Turin’s middle classes and nobility when socialising and entertaining.
The Doragrossa Rosolio presents exotic notes of cinnamon and cloves along with the freshness of anise and lemon peel.
Doragrossa Elixir Rabarbaro e Menta
The word “elixir” was originally used solely for the compounds prepared by pharmacists and alchemists for purely medical purposes. With the advent of chemical pharmacy, the elixirs lost their original function and moved from the pharmacy shelves to those of the liquor stores. Suitably reinterpreted and sweetened, they quickly caught on as a delicacy for the palate.
This delicately bitter liqueur, like the jarred candies of the old grocery stores, comes from the blend of the delightfully bitter taste of rhubarb with the pure freshness of mint.
Doragrossa Menta di Pancalieri
Mint is an aromatic herb that has always been much appreciated in Piedmont, perhaps due to its geographical and cultural proximity to neighbouring France. Production is concentrated in the small town of Pancalieri. Due to its quality, it is included in the "Paniere dei prodotti tipici della provincia di Torino" and has long been appreciated around the world.
This is a fresh and refreshing liqueur based on the purest Pancalieri mint, recognised for its unique organoleptic qualities.
Doragrossa Vermouth Rosso
The “Rosso” version took off after the Bianco, quickly becoming a fundamental ingredient of many great classics of mixology. In our recipe, notes of absinthe and citrus fruits emerge on the nose. Hints of ginger, cinnamon, angelica and orange, combined with a pronounced bitter complex of chamomile, gentian, rhubarb and cinchona, stand out on the palate. Sweet notes of vanilla complete this classic recipe, inspired by Piedmont’s oldest traditions.

Absinthe, orange, ginger, cinnamon,
gentian, rhubarb, cinchona and vanilla
Doragrossa Vermouth Bianco

Following the recent revival of original recipes and craftsmanship, it finds itself in the spotlight once more. Vermouth Bianco, or Classico, is the quintessential ready-to-drink Italian aperitif and this recipe is replete with the fragrant scents of citrus and roses. On the palate, it offers us the sweetness of vanilla, the spicy notes of cinnamon and a delicately bitter finish of absinthe and gentian.
