NoseSlightly meaty and savoury, with biscuit notes in its undiluted form. Fresh lime notes and definite aroma of anise entering with the addition of water.

TasteMinty and menthol notes emerge first, followed by bold anise and mildly bitter, spicy and peppery undertone. Really superb mouth feel.

Serving suggestionsTo fully enjoy the flavours and particularly the full potential of the famous Pontarlier wormwood, it must be served the traditional way by slowly pouring ice cold water over a sugar cube sitting on an absinthe spoon (it can also be served without sugar, at your convenience). We recommend 3 to 4 doses of water for one dose of absinthe if you wish your drink to be powerful in terms of herbs flavours, and 5 to 6 doses of water if you prefer a more refreshing drink.


Our range of spirits includes both modern trend drinks and extravagant specialties.
