Abisinthe Amer is a distilled Absinthe from the historical region of Fougerolles in France, it has a significant wormwood bouquet, no sugar is added and it belongs in the category of bitter spirits, which stands for a triple amount of wormwood. If you are looking for a similar Absinthe, try Absinthe Libertine Amer. We prefer it to Abisinthe Amer!
The Lemercier Absinthe Distillery:
In the photo gallery you can see some old photos of the Lemercier Absinthe distillery. Lemercier already prodcued Absinthe in the 19th century and many of the former buildings still look exactly the same 100 years later. The city of Fougerolles, where the distillery is located, was the second French Absinthe distillery hub next to Pontarlier. The Devoille distillery is for example as well located in Fougerolles.
|Country of Origin:||France|
|Tasting Notes:||Fresh Absinthe with significant notes of wormwood|
A thick louche that starts as a wonderful gold/honey color and transforms into a crystal/shimmering honey color to finish as a thick gold/cream color. Anise flavor is obvious but not overpowering. The higher alcohol content does not hit you on the palate. the other flavors are very well balanced into the total mix.
This will be a part of my permanent collection of Absinthe. I highly recommend this to every Absinthure!
A must try!
I ordered Absinthe Amer & my wife surprised me with Absinthe Bairnsfather Bitter, both arrived very quickly.
Thanks Alandia for one of the best online services this side of the green fairy!
I've written two reviews for this great Absinthe so i'll not go on. However if you’re new to Absinthe then Absinthe Amer is a great way to start, a French masterpiece.
Vive la France.
