Absinthe Verte de Fougerolles is the green brother of the Absinthe Blanche de Fougerolles. Fougerolles was the second French Absinthe metropolis after Pontarlier, during the times of the Belle Epoque. This Absinthe uses a wine-alcohol base, and combines grand and petite wormwood, green anise, hyssop, génepi and fennel. These herbs are individually distilled into full 80% alcoholates, blended, and then reduced to 72%. The green color of this Absinthe comes from a separately distilled green elixir "esprit vert", a natural maceration of additional plants, including veronica which is distilled in grape spirits and mixed in during the final coloring stage of production. The result is a potent green Absinthe with a beautiful louche and outstanding bouquet.

|Tasting Notes:||Delicious Absinthe with fruity pear notes|
I've enjoyed this particular absinthe for the last few years, and have some great memories attached to it. Some more after ordering this one.
Also kudos on the very fast service, received the bottle after 2 days, well in time for the event I had planned.
Highly recommend this absinthe and service.
