Product information "Absinthe Abel Bresson"
Abel Bresson is unjustly a forgotten name today. It was he who founded the first distillery in Fougerolles in 1839. The company quickly became the market leader for aperitifs and digestifs in France, so that he founded other distilleries in Dijon, Ivry-Port, Beaucaire, Saverne and even in Algir and Oran. He also bought Edouard Pernod's two distilleries in Pontarlier and Couvet!

Absinthe Abel Bresson
This is the oldest absinthe produced in Fougerolles and the flagship of the Abel Bresson distillery. A high-quality absinthe that represents the success and fame of the distillery in the 19th century.

taste notes
A great absinthe where aniseed and fennel nicely balance out the bitter wormwood. Coriander, Calmus, lemon balm, angelica round off the taste profile with a spicy touch. Natural coloring based on small wormwood, hysop, lemon balm and nettle.

Xavier Devoille was a wine merchant in Charton who delivered to the Rhone Valley with his team of horses. His son Paul took over the small business in 1905 and settled in an old foundry in Moines-Hauts. around the same time he bought the "Luzet" brand from Constante and Achille Luzet. The product catalog was expanded from pure fruit schnapps to include absinthe. The first product was called Riquette and was produced around 1912. One of Paul Devoille's two daughters married Raymond Gouttefroy. When Paul Devoille died in 1954, Raymond Gouttefroy took over the business. In 1956 he developed the Girardin brand and introduced new products. The business passed to his daughter and her husband Jaques Veillet in 1973, who sold the company to Rene de Miscault in 1985. Today, Devoille is one of the largest absinthe producers in France. Son Hugues de Miscault is in charge of production and father Rene de Miscault runs the Musee des eaux des vie in Lapoutroie near Colmar. The product range is constantly being expanded to include new products (Absinthe Libertine, La Charlotte, Verte and Blanche de Fougerolles).
