Absinthe Vieux Pontarlier is a Verte from France. The recipe consists of locally grown wormwood, Spanish green anise seed, Provençal fennel and a variety of further aromatic herbs and spices. Of course there is no sugar added - its refreshing taste is obtained entirely from the combination of plants and the distiller’s skill. In the glass, Vieux Pontarlier louches from a bright green color to an opalescent white. The aromas evolve after pouring, starting with bright anise and developing heady alpine herb notes with savory, lightly mentholated hints of wormwood.
