The history of Edouard Pernod Absinthe:
Henri-Louis Pernod, the founder of the famous Pernod distillery, married Major Dubied‘s daughter Emilie. Together with Major Dubied and his son Marcellin Henri-Louis Pernod set up an Absinthe distillery in Couvet, Switzerland. In the beginning it was quite small and measured only eight-by-four meters. But due to the rising success of the drink (and high import taxes in France) Henri-Louis Pernod set up a larger distillery in Pontarlier, France, in 1805. Henri-Louis Pernod had two sons. The younger son Louis ran the Pernod Fils distillery in Pontarlier, France. The eldest son, Edouard, took care of the distillery in Couvet and in 1827 transferred the company to his own name "Edouard Pernod". Edouard had a son also called Edouard who started his own company in 1897 in Pontarlier, France. The bottle we sell, is from this time period. By the time of the 1915 ban, Edouard merged with Pernod Fils and become the 3rd largest distiller in France.
