Description

Absinthe L'Ancienne was the result of a cooperation between the Czech distiller Martin Zufanek and the Italian Absintheur Stefano Rossoni. The batch was limited to 100 liters which equals 140 bottles. L'Ancienne was a high quality Absinthe which could have existed 100 years ago. It used wine alcohol as a base which was stored for one year in oak barrels. This was one explanation for the final intense aroma of this Absinthe. Nevertheless the wine alcohol was just the base. Most of the complex flavors derived from the distilled herbal composition: Wormwood from Pontarlier, Florence fennel, Moldavian melissa, Egyptian green anise, hyssop and artemisa pontica from Zufaneks private herbal garden.

 

The traditional way of serving Absinthe:

In the following video you can see how you prepare Absinthe the traditional French way. You need an Absinthe glass, an Absinthe spoon, sugar cubes and ice cold water for this ritual. This is how it works: You place the Absinthe spoon on the rim of the glass, put a sugar cube on top and slowly add water. The Absinthe in the glass blends with water and magically louches from green to an opalescent white color. Santé, your sugared Absinthe is prepared!

In a word, superb!. Master artisan absinthe producers Martin Zufanek and Stefano Rossoni have done it yet again with this years\' batch of the highly acclaimed L\'Ancienne. Their goal was to produce a modern absinthe that has the look, aroma, and flavor of a pre-ban absinthe. From the golden color to the cognac, leather, and old book aroma, and the wonderfully indescribable flavor, they have succeeded. If you have ever wanted to try a pre-ban absinthe but couldn\'t afford the $150 or so per drink price, then this is for you. Or if you just appreciate a damn fine drink.
