"In 1846 Paris wine agent Joseph Dubonnet decided to enter the business with a product of his own. With medicinal bitters just coming into vogue, he chose to base his drink on quinine, and to disguise its bitter taste, he mixed it with sweet wine from Greece. The result quickly gained wide acceptance; by the end of the century the company was producing three million bottles a year and exporting to many foreign countries" (Gold p.34)

"The Dubonnet poster featured one of Madame Dubonnet' cats (which was included in the firm's logo). The girl in the green striped dress is a professional model, a charming soubrette from the Theâtre des Ambassadeurs named Lise Fleuron. The Poster became so famous that Miss Fleuron was able to capitalize on it by billing herself thereafter as The Girl with the Dubonnet Cat"(Wine Spectator, 4)
