Product information "Absinthe Vieux Pontarlier"

The Anisette Vieux Pontarlier was originally developed in 1925 as a replacement for the 1915 banned absinthe created by Emile Pernot. Anisette is a popular drink similar to a pastis, but it is distilled from herbs and is therefore closer to a classic absinthe than to pastis. Unfortunately, anisette remained a niche product that could not withstand the competitive pressure of cheaper pastis. Even in France, its country of origin, it is difficult to find it more than 100 km away from the distillery in Pontarlier. 

The Emile Pernot distilleries have developed numerous absinthes since 2001 and are one of the well-known manufacturers on the absinthe market. The English company "Liquers de France", which has always liked to use the name "Vieux Pontarlier" for an absinthe, has a significant share in the success of these products, as it puts the name of the city in the center, which in the Belle Epoque as capital of absinthe. 

The time was ripe when the American market for absinthe opened up a while ago. So today "Vieux Pontarlier Absinthe Francaise Superior" is produced for export, while the anisette of the same name is still produced for the French market.

Vieux Pontarlier is produced in small batches with historic stills that are specially designed for the absinthe production were made. This historic absinthe is distilled with local wormwood, anise and a range of other aromatic herbs. According to the old recipes, any kind of additional sweetening is completely avoided. The fresh taste is created solely by the combination of herbs and the craftsmanship of the distiller. Since natural herbs are used, slight sedimentation at the bottom of the bottle is possible.
