Description

Absinthe La Perchée is distilled on a farm near the French-Swiss border, approximately 10km distance from Pontarlier. The farm is located in the small town Les Fourges, 1100m above sea level. All botanicals appart from anise seed are cultivated on the farm own land. This gives maximum control over cultivation, which guarantees premium quality. Adittionally, the altitude enhances the aroma structure of the wormwood plants. La Perchée is an Absinthe Superieure with 72% alc. by vol. It's rich bouquet derives from a formula dating back to the haydays of Absinthe back in the 19th century. The Absinthe is clear in color, as no coloring herbs are added after distillation. Therefore La Perchées´ taste is extremly fresh without being too strong on anise. It should be diluted with ice-cold water in a ratio of 1:3 to 1:4. It's up to personal tasting adding a little bit of sugar. Overall this high-quality, small-batch Absinthe is the right choice if you appreciate the love and work that artisanale micro-distillers add to their products.

 

La Perchée Absinthe and the resulting taste of wormwood: 

Real wormwood (artemisia absinthium) is a tall, grooved, branched and silvery-green plant. It can grow to 0.8–1.2 metres (2 ft 7 in–3 ft 11 in) ) in height. The leaves are spirally arranged, greenish-grey above and white below, covered with silky silvery-white trichomes. The plant is rich in essential oils. If you rub some leaves between your fingers you will immediately detect it´s aroma. Real worwmood is quite bitter in taste. That´s why you should not use it as a coloration herb. It would destroy the fine structure of the distillate. For coloration other plants and wormwood species are used. Common are hysop, melissa and small wormwood (artemisia pontica). Nevertheless the coloration herbs always add a bit of flavor to the distilled Absinthe. A very smooth and clear taste is achieved by skipping the coloration process. These Absinthes are called "La Bleues" or "Blanches". We also sell them at our store.

Excellent Gourmet Absinthe
This is another superb absinthe from the La Semilla Distillery. Like the La Faucille and Sans Frontierre it has the best AA profile since the original Sauvage. While all 3 are very similar the Sans Frontierre is a bit more earthy and herbal than the La Faucille and this one is a bit more floral. It reminds me of a top notch La Bleue. Anyone who appreciates a fine quality absinthe will love all 3
