Absinthe Francois Guy is the gold medal winner of the Absinthiades 2013! The Absinthiades is the annual Absinthe fair which takes place in Pontarlier, France. Francois Guy Absinthe is named after the master distiller of the distillery, which is now in its 4th generation. The Absinthe itself convinces with a fresh and delicious bouquet. Traditionally no additives are added, and the orchestra Francois Guy composes plays like in the Belle Epoque a symphony of flavor and stimulation. Smell an opened bottle, and you can practically experience the intense flavor of genuine French wormwood and green anise grown in the fertile grounds of Pontarlier. The alcohol level is with 45% lower in comparison to other Absinthes. Therefore you can enjoy Francois Guy Absinthe without sugar and less water than you normally use. Info: The smaller 0.5 liter bottle Francois Guy Absinthe, which is also available in our shop, and the 1 liter bottle contain the same Absinthe, just the label and bottle is different.

 

The history of the Guy Absinthe distillery from Pontarlier:

We write the year 1890 when Armand Guy, aged 20, began to pursue his Absinthe career. His first strategic move was to locate his distillery at Rue des Lavaux. At this place an underground water source was located, which he used for the distillation of his fine spirits. The first customers were als well planned: Close by, the French Army had a military camp. With its constant waves of soldiers ans its constant demand for alcoholic spirits the camp was a major factor for his business sucess. It also helped to introduce the Armand Guy Absinthe to the rest of France and the Colonies. Overall, Armand Guy really benefited from the golden years of Absinthe. Pontarlier became a major Absinthe hub, so big, that at the end of the 19th century no fewer than 23 distilleries were located in this small town. Pontarlier only had a population of 10,000 - 3,000 were employed in the distillation of Absinthe. This of course changed with Absinthe prohibition taking place in 1915. But now, 100 years later, the 4th generation, François Guy (1964), successfully revives the Absinthe tradition which his great grandfather created.

My goodness this is delicious. It needs little if any sugar, its not that bitter, its not that strong, its not that boozy. Good lord it won the 2013 gold medal.. for subtlety? The main problem is the full litre bottle goes down way too quick. I may very well have to add this Guy with every order. I don\'t give out 5s willy nilly.

A nice enough absinthe.
Not very green, as far as verts go, but it has a nice smell and a lovely taste (it almost has something of a vanilla aftertaste lingering around the edges).
It lacks the depth and feeling of some of the more complex absinthes, though, and is no comparison to the Roquette 1797, for example.
Also, for the size/price value, I think the Kübler 53 packs a better punch. Two glasses and I'm seeing stars, vis a vis this which i can drink like water all night...
Overall a nice drink for a hot night, but nothing to write home about as far as absinthes go.

Hi all,
Here's another review from the island man under the Coconut tree.

This Absinthe is classic.It's alcohol displacement is perfect at 45% and the louche magically turns to it's celebrated but slightly darkened white.

The aroma is fresh and is flowery and somewhat feminine.The herbs are of high quality and effective in it's manufacture.Beautiful.Certainly one must recognise this distillation as one of the top 5 high quality Absinthes from France.I say so.

For me,this Absinthe NEEDS NO SUGAR. 1 or 2 ounces of Absinthe into 3 parts cold filtered water.Ice cubes if so desired.

In summary I give this 5/5 !

This was a excellent absinthe. Aroma was a bit weak from what i would like it to be, Louche was excellent white and milky, and the taste was delightfull no complaints here. good for first time exsperience. I would bye this one again (if ther were ever out of my beloved "Absinthe Montmartre"). It is compariable to "Absinthe Verte de Fougerolles".
