A famous liqueur first made around 1510 by the Bendictine monks at their monastery at Fécamp, in Northern France.
After the monastery was destroyed, during the time of the French Revolution, the recipe passed into lay hands.
The DOM stands for "Deo Optimo Maximo" - meaning "to God, most good, most great" and not as often thought "Dominican Order of Monks".
