Cousin Jeune is the latest development by Dominique Rousselet, master distiller and co-owner of the distillery Les Fils d' Emile Pernot, located at La Cluse et Mijoux, within the “canton” of Pontarlier in the French Jura - the region of the origins of Absinthe. Floral, yet surprisingly strong, this clear Absinthe appeals to both connoisseurs and those new to Absinthe. The long finish is followed by a subtle bitterness on the palate, one that obviously polarizes opinions. With its 65% alcohol content, it parallels the most successful products from Pernot - l' Authentique and Vieux Pontarlier. Cousin Jeune was one of the historic Pontarlier distilleries during the 19th century - and was located in the present-day Pernot distillery building. Cousin Jeune was also the company who financially supported Armand Guy, to get his Absinthe distillery running back in 1890. So once again, it turns out that everything is connected. The attractive label Pernot uses is an antique Cousin Jeune advertising poster on which you can see a young, red-haired lady with a large glass and a bottle of Absinthe Cousin Jeune. The slogan states " Ask for My Cousin."
