The Flavor of New England for over 100 Years

Since 1906


Our Roots

One of the oldest continuing businesses in Maine, the Dolan Flavoring Company of Portland has produced an array of full-flavored products and extracts for over a hundred years.  The company’s current feature item, Mount Williams Original Vanilla Flavor, contains a unique, homemade formula created in 1906 when Founder Harry A. Dolan sought an economical, better-tasting alternative to vanilla extract.  This product has provided rich, “grandma’s kitchen” quality flavors to New England homes, bakeries, specialty shops, ice cream makers and supermarkets for over a century.  For the purist baker, the Dolan Flavoring Company offers Autumn Lane Pure Bourbon Vanilla Extract, the rich essence of which is sure to enhance your ice cream, custard and pudding dishes.   

Our Flavors

Close your eyes and think back for a moment to the sweet aromas of Grandma's kitchen and the heavenly taste of her baked goods.  Seeing a bottle of Mount Williams Original Vanilla Flavor sitting on Grandma’s counter always brought anticipation of what was about to come.
