Emile Pernot

The history of this distillery can be traced back to the "primordial soup" of absinthe! In the middle to the end of the 19th century, many absinthe distilleries were established in Pontarlier. It was quite common for one distillery to be taken over by another, or for partners to change. In any case, the distillery Dubied & Duval, the Parrot Frères distillery and from this finally the Pernot distillery. The exact details are of course much more interwoven and hardly understandable for non-insiders.
Anyway, it's nice to see that after the company handover by Gerard and Odile Pernot (with whom we were very happy to work together), the company is now located in historically significant premises - namely in the old one Cousin Jeune distillery, which at the end of the 19th century helped Armand Guy, who had just been apprenticed to August Junod, to become self-employed.

If you browse through Pernot's company history, you will find out that this distillery belongs to the "primordial soup" of absinthe. Although the company that we know today under the name Pernot was founded at the end of the 19th century, it is based on much older companies that can be traced back to the commercial beginnings of absinthe. In 1889, Emile Ferdinand Pernot took a stake in a distillery that the Parrot brothers had bought from Henri-Francois Duval a few years earlier. This Duval previously worked with the son of the legendary Major Dubied, who, together with Henri-Louis Pernod, founded the first commercial absinthe distillery in Couvet at the end of the 18th century. With the absinthe ban in 1915, Pernot's success story came to an end. Attempts were made to make ends meet with regional specialties, but sapin, genepi, gentiane and anise were not able to match the success of absinthe. Nonetheless, the distillery survived and benefited from the absinthe renaissance of the early 2000s. Under the guidance of Liqueres de France, the small distillery regained a good, international reputation. When the owners Emile and Odile Pernot sold the distillery in 2005, little did they know that the ancestral premises would soon be razed to the ground and the distillery would move to La Cluse et Mijoux. There the new owner found a building which itself has a notable absinthe history and is a dignified place for such a distillery.
