Details

Absinthe Montmartre is the first and probably only traditionally distilled, naturally colored, Austrian Premium Absinthe. A true old-Viennese specialty.

 

Vienna, 23rd December 2004, how the production of Absinthe Montmartre started:

Silently the old copper alambique rests in the corner of the venerable subterranean chamber, covered in layers of dust and patina. Slowly the first drops of crystal clear liquid begin to drip out of the condenser and immediately fill the air with the perfumed scent of fragrant herbs. An old tradition is reborn... Two Viennese gentlemen, Gerald Fischer of the old-Viennese distillery Fischer and Roman F. Gundacker private antiques collector and experienced Absintheur have come together to bring the tradition of quality absinthe distillation back into their hometown. Not an easy task as it soon would turn out! The old handwritten recipe books of the distillery were taken from the safe where they had lain undisturbed and needed to be deciphered. Historical documents from France and Germany where analyzed and compared to the Austrian scriptures. Recipes, distillation protocols, herb books... everything needed to be thoroughly studied to guarantee the utmost quality and historical authenticity of the product. Naturally an important question that came up was "what did vintage Austrian Absinthe taste like anyway?". The creators had two vintage French Absinthes at their disposal, one of which even dated from before the ban of 1915, similar Austrian relics where nowhere to be found. So it was quite a challenge to compile all of this information into a drink that would, on one side, be able to compete with fine French brands, and on the other side, still have a unique, individual taste making it a true old-Austrian specialty. But they were happy to face that challenge...

This Absinthe is definitely a winner! After tasting 12 different Absinthe's, I would add, that to me, it posseses somewhat of an earthy quality which does enhance the experience. At first, one realizes a slightly different charicter, but it soon grabs you and draws you in. For the money this is a true value. Are there better Absinth's? Yes, but at twice the price. This Gem ranks in the top 20% of all the absinthe's I have tried.

My first bottel arrived today. Upon oppening the bottle, I was greeted with a sweet flowing air. As I took my time pouring the absinthe, I took note of the louche. As it formed, the room was filled with an allmost floral buqet. My anticipation for the first sip was well met by a full flavor that sat well. It was not overpowering, yet distinkt. I would stongly recomend this particular brand for beginers, owing to it's soft anise flavor. It meets and exceeds expectations.
