Doubs Mystique absinthe is as modern as it is complex. It suggests very charming herbaceous notes.
This 100% natural absinthe is produced mainly with plants that come from Pontarlier. These have been chosen with the greatest care in order to guarantee a rich absinthe with a large and complex aromatic palette.
Although it is not issued from a historical recipe, as are other absinthes from the distillery Emile pernot, Doubs Mystique
is nevertheless a high quality absinthe. The grand wormwood plant is pronounced as well as the green anise.
An absinthe of a new generation, to discover as soon as possible!
- Doubs Mystique
took over from « Doubs Premium » absinthe. However, it only kept the bottle and part of the name of its predecessor. Indeed, the latter was produced in South Africa and therefore, did not have the chance to be made with the famous wormwood plants of Pontarlier. That is why its quality can not be compared with the one of the current Doubs Mystique
- The previous version had to stop being produced due to the complaint of Francois Guy who said, with good reason, that an absinthe produced in South Africa had no right to use the appellation « Doubs Premium - Les montagnes du Jura ».
“Les fils d’Emile Pernot” distillery was founded in 1890 in Pontarlier, France, by Emile Pernot. In 1910, the distillery produced approximately 450 hectolitres; that is not surprising, because in those days, the consumption of absinthe was making good progress.
When “Fee Verte” was banned in 1915, the distillery turned its production to other products such as those made from aniseed, fruit brandies or alcohol made from gentian.
In 2001 the small distillery started to reproduce absinthe with “Un Emile” from an old family recipe.
In 2005, the distillery was sold to François Thevenin, who has since developed the firm to add a touch of modernity.
A year later, at the end of 2006, François Thevenin bought the Klainguer distillery, also situated in Pontarlier, and formed the Pernot – Klainguer distillery.

For such a complex, herbaceous absinthe, Doubs is quite delicate in flavor, smooth, with the kind of lasting taste and quality typical of Emile Pernot.
Emile Pernot have done a great kindness by purchasing the rights to Doubs and re-inventing it as a fine and outstanding example of modern absinthe.
(Should you be curious about the original South African brew - DON'T BE! - Just imagine how radioactive toilet cleaner would taste and you'll be mighty close.)

This is a great choice. Was our first choice and is also our greatest choice after sampling other bottles. You will not feel ripped off and it has a great taste with even better effect.
Our only issue was with our last order one of our bottles was chipped .when I emailed them to tell them. All they gave was 10% off next order. That kinda sucks that they could not ratify any other way. We spent our time looking for a piece of glass in each glasses we poured.
BUT STILL. This is a great absinthe!!!
