Proof66 Notes

Vieux Pontarlier absinthe (pronounced "pon-TAR-lee-AY")is made in France and named for the pontarlier, which their website notes is a city in eastern France near the Swiss border. The distillery is one of the few that survived the notorious absinthe ban and is still operating today. They use a traditional formula in the crafting with locally grown wormwood.

An excellent absinthe, one of my favorites. I wish I could find it in a local store but no such luck now.... It is a lovely, fragrant, and wonderfully subtle absinthe. I try to always have a bottle in my house.

My favourite absinthe. Beautiful colour, robust louche, and an unbelievable floral bouquet. I've yet to find it in any U.S. stores but it's worth ordering online.
