Description

Details

Absinthe La Loulette is distilled on a farm near the French-Swiss border, approximately 10km distance from Pontarlier. The farm is located in the small town Les Fourges, 1100m above sea level. All botanicals appart from anise seed are cultivated on the farm own land. This gives maximum control over cultivation, which guarantees premium quality. Adittionally, the altitude enhances the aroma structure of the wormwood plants. La Loulette is an Absinthe with 55% alc. by vol. Therefore it is perfectly served as an aperitif. It's fresh bouquet derives from a formula dating back to the haydays of Absinthe back in the 19th century. The Absinthe is clear in color, as no coloring herbs are added after distillation. It should be diluted with ice-cold water in a ratio of 1:3 to 1:4. Overall this high-quality, small-batch Absinthe is the right choice if you are looking for a lighter "Summer" Absinthe.

 

Wormwood, Absinthe and the resulting taste: 

Real wormwood (artemisia absinthium) is a tall, grooved, branched and silvery-green plant. It can grow to 0.8–1.2 metres (2 ft 7 in–3 ft 11 in) ) in height. The leaves are spirally arranged, greenish-grey above and white below, covered with silky silvery-white trichomes. The plant is rich in essential oils. If you rub some leaves between your fingers you will immediately detect it´s aroma. Real worwmood is quite bitter in taste. That´s why you should not use it as a coloration herb. It would destroy the fine structure of the distillate. For coloration other plants and wormwood species are used. Common are hysop, melissa and small wormwood (artemisia pontica). Nevertheless the coloration herbs always add a bit of flavor to the distilled Absinthe. A very smooth and clear taste is achieved by skipping the coloration process. These Absinthes are called "La Bleues" or "Blanches". We also sell them at our store.

Great absinthe
This is the little brother of La Faucille, La Perchee, and Sans Frontierre. I say this because it is 45% alcohol whereas the others are at 72%. Being that it has less alcohol I expected it to be somewhat lacking in flavor. Happily, I was quite wrong. It may be just a touch milder than the other 3 but it has the same superior herbal flavor and wormwood profile. I'll be getting more.
