Vieux Pontarlier Absinthe Française Supérieure is carefully crafted in small batches using alambic stills that were specifically designed to make absinthe. This historic spirit is distilled using locally grown wormwood (Artemisia absinthium), which is considered the finest in the world, along with green anise seed, Provençal fennel seed and a variety of additional aromatic herbs and spices. Faithful to the original formulations, there is no sweetening added of any kind - its refreshing taste is obtained entirely from the combination of plants and the distiller's skills.

Fine, medium peridot green color. Gradually forming louche, milky with opalescent reflections. Aroma initially of bright anise, developing heady, alpine herbs, with savory, mentholated wormwood notes. Intitial taste is intense and spicily piquant, with round, herbal flavors cradling the wormwood and a long, refreshing, cooling finish of anise and fennel seed.

Customer Reviews


  An introduction to absinthe  I was told that if I were to drink absinthe, I should drink the best in order to know what the best should be. Vieux Pontarlier is a delight to drink. As time has passed, I drink it and a Swiss Blanche and I am very pleased.    -
