Description

This Francois Guy Absinthe was from the year 2003. It was still bottled in the old bottle. This bottle design was used till approx. 2008. The labels were in perfect condition. At the front you can see an additional golden sticker, informing about having won the golden Absinthe spoon at the Absinthiades (Absinthe fair in Pontarlier, France) in 2001. The Absinthe itself convinced with a fresh and delicious bouquet. As it matured for more than 10 years, you could expect some extra smoothness. Traditionally no additives were added, and the orchestra Francois Guy composed played like in the Belle Epoque, a symphony of flavor and stimulation. Once you smelled at an opened bottle, you could practically feel the intense flavor of genuine French wormwood and green anise grown in the fertile grounds of Pontarlier. The alcohol level was with 45% lower in comparison to other Absinthes. Therefore you could enjoy this Francois Guy Absinthe without sugar and less cold water than you normally use.

 

History of the Francois Guy Absinthe distillery:

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.
