This vintage Pernod Fils Absinthe bottle is from the Tarragona distillery in Spain. After the big burning of the Pernod Fils distillery in Pontarlier in 1901, a second plant was built in Tarragona, Spain. Absinthe was never forbidden in Spain, therefore Pernod was able to keep up the production until the late 1960’s.
The Absinthe bottle is empty but in a good condition. The original front and back labels are intact and also the original alloy sealing at the bottleneck is still present. It can be dated around 1920 as the bottle bottom still has the larger conical shape. An absolute collector’s item.
