Dubonnet

What it is:  Fortified wine

Dubonnet is a wine-based aperitif similar to Buckfast Tonic Wine. It is a blend of fortified wine, herbs, spices and quinine, with fermentation being stopped by the addition of alcohol. Dubonnet was first sold in 1846 by Joseph Dubonnet, in response to a competition run by the French authorities to find a way of persuading French Foreign Legionnaires in North Africa to drink quinine.
