Inspired by a hand-written recipe for Creme de Cacao in the Distillery's recipe book dating back to the 1920's, La Maison Fontaine Chocolat has been masterfully refined using a combination of Pontarlier-grown Grande Absinthe and the finest chocolate infusion.

Sweet richness, combined with apparent notes of absinthe and chocolate create a unique soft liqueur. Fontaine Chocolat is the perfect after dinner drink to enjoy neat or poured over ice.

Fontaine Chocolat is also a wonderfully versatile liqueur that can be mixed into an array of sublime cocktails.

“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.

This is repeat order, the chocolate taste combined with the liqueur is exquisite. I'm hooked and I will drink lots more of this nectar in the coming years

Nice but it doesn't have any recognisable flavour. Good when mixed with other things though!

Being a lover of sweet things, this liqueur is perfect for me. I'm just about to re-order and I'm sure I will be ordering more than one bottle. Whilst it is sweet, the unmistakeable taste of absinthe is very evident also. I like to finish a fine meal with this drink.
