Absinthe A. Junod 65% - 0,7l
In order to produce Absinthe A. Junod (name of the famous distiller of the Belle Epoque), the eight plants and herbs are macerated in a neutral alcohol base. After that, the macerate is distilled in traditional century old copper stills. The Emile Pernot distillery is one of the most renowned absinthe distilleries worldwide and was founded in 1890.
Absinthe A. Junod made its way to Los Angeles in February 2019 for the Academy Awards (Oscars) and was in the official 'gift bag' given to all the celebrities attending this movie festival. It then went to another movie festival in May, the famous Festival de Cannes in France.
The A. Junod Absinthe label - designed by the Colombian artist Randy Mora - is very interesting and definitely an eye-catcher: Detailed illustrations of the herbs used to make this absinthe, alongside a mirrored face of a lady that forms a third eye.
This absinthe was awarded the silver medal (in the category of clear absinthes) at the Absinthiades 2019.

Emile Pernot, Frankreich
1899 : the young Emile-Ferdinand Pernot, a native of the Fougerolles region, where he had trained as a distiller, joins the Parrot brothers and together they establish "Emile Pernot et Cie" located in Pontarlier. Emile-Ferdinand's son, Emile-Joseph (don't worry, none of their sons were called Emile-Emile even though they loved this first name), a survivor of the World War I trenches, later registers the famous name "Emile Pernot".
2009 : The distillery moves from the center of Pontarlier to the magnificent old Cousin Jeune building in La Cluse et Mijoux, at the foot of the Château de Joux, the very same building where the young Emile-Joseph Pernot learnt his trade a century earlier. And you know what? It was a pure coincidence - the building had been a post office and a fire station in the intervening years!
Absinthe distillation at Emile Pernot :
The two century-old copper alembics used by Emile Pernot for their absinthe distillations were made by the famous firm of Egrot in the early 1900s. They were especially designed and built for absinthe distillation, and they are the only stills of their kind in operation anywhere in the world. These stills allow the Pernot distillery to produce absinthes of exceptional quality according to methods unchanged for a century.
