Distillerie Pernot Absinthe Cousin Jeune (Artemisia Absinthium + green anise) 65% 700ml
Distillerie Les Fils d'Emile Pernot
Les fils d'Emile Pernot is a traditional French distillery founded in 1889 by Emile-Ferdinand Pernot in Pontarlier, in the Haut Doubs. The Absinthe Cousin Jeune 65 ° Les Fils by Emile Pernot is a fairly strong white absinthe with a slight hint of bitterness. Floral, powerful and surprisingly aromatic, it will appeal to the uninitiated as well as to the most informed amateurs. Titrating at 65 °, it is in line with our best absinthes such as the Authentique or the Vieux Pontarlier. The last white absinthe born from the imagination of our Master Distiller. Long on the palate with a slight bitterness at the end of the mouth, it will not leave you indifferent. Gold medal at the Concours Général Agricole 2014! Its label uses a well-known advertising poster from the Cousin Jeune house. It represents a young red-haired woman with voluptuous shapes carrying a glass and a bottle of Cousin Jeune absinthe on a tray. This poster and its slogan: "Ask for my cousin" written in large letters invites you to taste this absinthe with a refreshing taste lengthened with water, in the traditional way.
1899 was the beginning of Emile Pernot Distillery located in the heart of the best area for producing absinthe, the plant and consequently the distillate, an area that continues across the Swiss border into the Swiss Jura. Absinthe distillation at Emile Pernot :The two century-old copper alembics used by Emile Pernot for their absinthe distillations were made by the famous firm of Egrot in the early 1900s. They were especially designed and built for absinthe distillation, and they are the only stills of their kind in operation anywhere in the world. These stills allow the Pernot distillery to produce absinthes of exceptional quality according to methods unchanged for a century.2010 saw the birth of the world widely acclaimed Berthe de Joux and La Maison Fontaine, and then 2011 & 2012 saw the rising success of Absinthe Authentique. But Emile Pernot is not only about absinthe, this would be too simplistic, especially if you've ever tasted their firtree liqueur called Sapin, a complex product not produced anywhere else and which is loved at first sip! As well as Gentiane and Absinthe liqueurs.
