Product information "Absinthe Libertine Original"
This liqueur is packaged in a 70cL clear glass bottle. The labeling exhibits a graphic of a Belle Epoque cafe scene, and has an antique motif. The top label exhibits the familiar "spiritueux aux plantes d'absinthe". The main label lists the ingredients as a maceration and distillation of plants, alcohol, and sugar.
 
I've visited the distillery where this product is made, and can confirm that it is made via an assemblage of macerates and distillates. Due to its particular method of manufacture, the assembler cannot really use A. absinthium without the end product being horribly bitter, and therefore A. pontica is substituted. As a result, the end product contains no A. absinthium, and is therefore not a true absinthe. Libertine would be more appropriately described as perhaps a 'liqueur d'armoise'.
 
Upon removing the cap, once senses a mild flavor of anise followed by a subtle sweetness and not much heat. The liquor itself is naturally colored and the initial green hue quickly fades to an amber tint because of its clear glass bottle. Tasting it neat reveals only subtle heat along with a distinct flavor of anise up front, followed by a mildly sugary texture. When diluted with water, the liquid louches moderately with fairly heavy gradient lines. The taste of the drink is rather light, sweet, and aromatic, with anise being the predominant flavor followed by mild brandy notes, and no bitterness.
 
In conclusion, the appearance, texture and flavor of this liqueur is a bit reminiscent of Versinthe, but is lighter in texture, more refined in flavor, and not nearly as sweet. It makes for a pleasant drink.

Devoille
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).
