Pere Francois

Absinthe: Pere Francois
Distillery: Francois Bezencon

Mutineer Magazine is all about absinthe right now, with the cover of the June/July issue being an absinthe extravaganza. We received this absinthe to try and the staff loved it, so a product spotlight it shall receive. This absinthe comes from Fleurier, Switzerland, home of the green fairy, and is produced in a family owned distillery that has been in operation for over 40 years. Since the ban on absinthe was lifted, the family has started producing individually numbered bottles using all the original ingredients including grand wormwood (artemisia absinthium) and European herbs. Pere Francois Absinthe garnered a gold medal at the National Competition of Waters-of-Swiss Noble Event in 2005/2006.

    Haven’t tried this myself, but I’m adding it to my next order. There’s an editorial review for this one over at the Wormwood Society!
