Description

Moulin Vert is a green Absinthe with wine alcohol at its base. Distillation takes place in Fougerolles, France, at the historical Devoille distillery. The distillery was founded in 1859 and until today it is family run with a great focus on tradition and quality. Moulin Vert is a 100% natural product, meaning that no artificial additives are used, neither for the distillation nor for the coloring process. The alcohol level is set at classic 68% to set free and preserve the natural green color of the used coloring herbs like hyssop and artemisia pontica. The result is a unique, vintage looking green appearance. Moulin Vert´s taste is intense and substantially herbal, with notes of dark chocolate and cognac. The latter is a result of the wine alcohol base used for distillation. We recommend to serve Absinthe Moulin Vert with two parts cold water and two sugar cubes. This allows the complex flavors to come forth in full effect so you can experience the fascination of this very special drink.

 

Why is the name of this Absinthe Moulin Vert?

In the period known as the Belle Époque, many intellectuals and artists confessed their love for the Green Fairy. In what was considered one of the most notorious Absinthe bars in Paris, the "Moulin Rouge", famous Absintheurs like Toulouse Lautrec, Baudelaire and Van Gogh met for the "Heure Verte", the Green Hour. In reference to this history-charged establishment, Absinthe Moulin Vert was created.

Bitter and lacks complexity in the flavor
This has a very strong anise smell when you open the bottle. I love anise, but this smell is so strong it almost smells more like licorice than anise. It has a nice thick creamy texture when louched, but I found it bitter tasting. I don't use sugar cubes; I prefer just the Absinthe and water so perhaps this would be better if you sweeten it with a sugar cube.

First impression
The first impression is the sudden louche of this absinthe, its taste is full and persistent, as to me, though there’s no mention in its description, I feel a licorice aroma, I like it! Very good!

Great tasting, traditional flavor
We really love this absinthe. The Moulin Vert has a classic French look and taste and the bouquet truly satisfies the palette. Must try for folks seeking a traditional, Belle Epoque-era styled French absinthe.

this was ok stuff. Not the best one I have ever had. Taste was just ok, could have been better. Mostly this stuff just made me tired and wanting more. I\'d drink it again but dont think id order it twice.
