Vieux Pontarlier

ORIGIN: France


PRODUCT: Vieux Pontarlier Absinthe Française Supérieure

Vieux Pontarlier is craft-distilled in Pontarlier, France, the historic "Capital of Absinthe." Select botanicals and Pontarlier-grown wormwood, which is considered the finest in the world, are distilled in a chardonnay grape base spirit from Burgundy. Vieux Pontarlier was developed over a period of five years at one of the two last remaining absinthe distilleries still functioning in Pontarlier, using the distillery's original, pre-ban logbook notes and antique alembic stills designed specifically for making absinthe. 65% ABV

 TASTING NOTES: Pale peridot green. Slowing dripping ice-cold water produces a lightly green-tinged and billowy opalescent cloudiness. The aroma is fresh, yet slightly briny and spicy with lightly mentholated and cacao notes. The flavors are multi-layered, the grape spirit provides a complex base for subtle herbal undertones, the anise and fennel seed are sweet yet, well balanced, highlighting the minty/menthol taste of true Pontarlier wormwood.
