Introducing Ourselves

As the UK’s leading importers and distributors of premium distilled absinthe, and the world’s largest volume shipper of premium absinthe, we at Liqueurs de France are committed to providing total satisfaction to our customers. Each brand of absinthe that we sell has been chosen and tasted by the directors’ themselves, our proud boast is that

We won’t offer you any product that we wouldn’t drink ourselves (or offer to our friends), something to consider when comparing us with other sites!

We have been fortunate enough to have sampled vintage absinthes and we know that the best examples of these are fantastically complex and subtle. We decided from the outset that we were only interested in producing absinthe made by distilling traditional plants, in the exact same fashion as the best of the old absinthe producers. To achieve this we visited artisanal distillers in France and Switzerland, some of whom continue to use original 19th century absinthe copper alambics, and we commissioned them to recreate absinthe in the most authentic fashion either from family recipes or, in some cases, to our unique specifications based on old distiller’s manuals. Each distillery produces their own individual style of absinthe which reflects both the regional nature of absinthe and the distiller’s choice of plants; some are light and floral, others more complex and intense.
