Description

Absinthe Pierrot was a popular brand in the great era of Absinthe. A white clown, Pierrot means "clown" in French, was the eyecatching symbol for this brand. This Absinthe was initially planned as a niche product, mainly aiming at the Parisian market by surfing on the world of entertainment, circus and the arts. But its surprising success favoured its extension to the national market. Absinthe Pierrot was introduced to the market in 1906 by the Abel Bresson distillery located in Fougerolles, France. Now, more than 100 years later the Devoille distillery, also located in Fougerolles, has relaunched this historical Absinthe using the original recipe of that time.

For free: This month you receive two Absinthe coasters for free. They are functionally designed and convince with premium quality. Overall, a beautiful accessory for friends of premium Heure Vertes!

 

Tasting notes of Absinthe Pierrot:

The dominant aniseed is shaken up by the combination of fennel and grand wormwood. All this is boosted by melissa, calamus and coriander, while angelica roots add the finishing touch. Absinthe Pierrot has a totally natural coloring thanks to a predominance of petite wormwood, enhanced by hyssop, melissa and nettle on the finish.

 

How to drink Absinthe the traditional way:

Absinthe Pierrot is a smooth and balanced Absinthe with lovely notes of wormwood. We recommend a ratio of 1 part Absinthe to 2 parts ice-cold water. One sugar cube can be added to support the aromatic notes, but it is not really necessary. In the following video you can see the recommended, traditional method of drinking Absinthe.

Great New Absinthe
Alandias' new absinthe is wonderful. Produced by the distinguished Devoille distillery, it's a bit of a change from their usual products. Most Devoille absinthes are very rich and kind of 'heavy', which I really like. This one, however, is very light and refreshing. By 'light' I don't mean it lacks flavor by any means. It has a predominant wormwood taste but it's not overpowering or bitter at all. It goes down very easily and once you've had a glass you'll want more

Just fantastic
Loved the coasters, green is so my color too!
The Strong68 is lovely. The flavor is intense but in a good way. For a person who's only ever had Lucid before... Well, this was just brilliant.

A great verte
This is one of the flagship absinthes of Alandia. It has a nice louche and a rich, complex and smooth flavor. You can't go wrong with this one (Maison ALANDIA).
