This Absinthe was awarded the gold medal in the category Verte at the Absinthiades 2012! Coming from the Emile Pernot distillery, the Authentique is an authentic absinthe, that was developed by Dominique Rousselet, Emile Pernot's stillmaster. Absinthe Authentique is a young, fresh and with more powerful than usual wormwood notes. Colour: A clear, lively green. Nose: Hints of Pontarlier wormwood merge nicely with anise and fennel. Louche: The Authentique develops a lovely bright, white-green louche, which is neither too thick, not too thin. Taste: The anise and fennel combined with the wormwood lead to a wonderfully rounded mouthfeel and balanced taste. Finish: Refreshing!


Gold medal in the category "Verte" at the Absinthiades 2012

Serving Suggestion

- At first, enjoy a glass of Absinthe Authentique with half a piece of sugar. For the next, add more or less according to taste.

- For one measure of absinthe (3cl), add 2 to 5 measures of fresh water.

Bon au goût, une belle entrée en la matière! Un bel équilibre entre les arômes et l'anis.

21 Jan 2019

Jolly good absinthe. Lovely balanced taste, not too heavy anise flavour. Strong wormwood. Elegant brownish green colour.
Satisfactory but not exceptional.

10 Nov 2018

Agréable de par son amertume et ses saveurs différentes!

12 Dec 2017

ein selbstbewusster absinth. murmelt aufgeweckt die kehle hinab, knallt hämmernd ins zwerchfell, nebelt wolkig ins hirn und säuselt in alle sensorische rezeptoren „ hey du, das leben ist schön „. die grüne fee ist einfach toll.

27 Sep 2017

Ma préférée jusqu'ici !
Tout est dit dans les avis unanimes et je confirme. Un régal...!

22 Feb 2017

Hallo und guten Tag!! Ich bin mit der Lieferung absolut zufrieden, auch die Bemühungen um die Geschichte des Absinthe gefällt mir. Werde bei Bedarf wieder bei Ihnen bestellen. Liebe grüße Norbert Stein

11 Nov 2016

Excellente absinthe! pour moi c'est une des meilleures (peut être même la meilleure). Entre l'absinthe, l'anis vert et le fenouil, quel bouquet et quelle fraicheur. A recommander.

4 Nov 2014

Quite nice indeed. Think of Un Emile but with much better body (wormwood and anise equally present, without being aggressive), improved louche and lasting numb finish.

As a personal curious note, I've experienced a stronger "drunk" feeling with this than with 68° absinthes; don't know what causes it, but it settles down soon enough and then the drink goes down smoothly with a relaxing effect.

4 Sep 2014

A nice traditional absinthe that I think has about all that it takes...

6 Apr 2014

Excellent Absinthe. This will spoil you after trying it. Very nicely organized profile with an excellent boquet!
Well done.

Très bonne longueur en bouche une absinthe de qualité

3 Oct 2013

A surprisingly mild, refined style of Pontarlier absinthe, but it's still fragrant and interesting, and also retains some sharp hyssopy flavour to stir up the mildness. I never really supposed mildening Pontarlier style could end up this well.

21 Aug 2013

My mouth enjoyed a great surprise after trying this French treat. I liked the balance and the bite was something tempered by a pat of sugar.

28 Mar 2013

A good one, but not exceptional. Bitterness is not too strong (I like bitterness, strong wormwood taste), but still full of flavours, a bit sweet aftertaste.

12 Dec 2012

So this is the first absinthe i am enjoying & might I say it is exquisite. the nose is well balanced with anise & has a strong but not overpowering wormwood taste. very refreshing finish that lingers a flavor of unsweetened liquorish on the tongue. I start to feel the effect very quickly with the first glass so do be aware. I give this Absinthe a thumbs up.

7 Nov 2012

Agréablement surpris par la fraîcheur dégagée par L'Authentique.
La première bouchée vous laisse une sensation de douceur, remplacée petit à petit par des saveurs pour le moins surprenantes et complexes. Anis / Fenouil, mais pas seulement. Le mix est délicat et parfaitement équilibré.

23 Sep 2012

Delicately flavoured and beautifully balanced, Authentique is a must have for any collection. A rather feminine absinthe but one to be enjoyed by everyone.
Well scented with a pleasing louche and lasting taste, it is perfectly mixed at 3:1. Personally, I feel no sugar is required.
Well priced for the undeniable quality Authentique is.

21 Sep 2012

Allie force et belle amertume. Un vrai plaisir. Saveur herbacée très agreable.

16 Aug 2012

ok.thanks for your answer.
i really,really like this authentique absinthe...and i'm completely satisfied for the quality of your service.
thank you for the care and the professional way, absinthes.com
and...anyway,you are the sellers not the producers,so my opinion was for general information.
this is it..greetings from italy.

11 Aug 2012

hi,i've received a bottle of Authentique today.i really enjoy this one but..on the bottle image,the logo said:"extrait d'absinthe"....on my bottle,in the same place,"absinthe distillee"....why??it's different?
maybe there are 2 type of this absinthe....i don't think so.....


Answer from Absinthes.com:

Hello there Greeny. The French law changed meaning that they are now allowed to write distilled absinthe on the bottle, rather than extract of absinthe. So they changed the label! The contents are still the same wonderful Authentique!

22 May 2012

Superbe! Je recommande pour les amateurs de goût, votre bouche sera conquise dès la première gorgée. Un bouquet anis et de fenouil qui explose, j'adore!

30 Apr 2012

I really enjoy this and will always have it on hand. Well worth the price. You'll be reluctant to share this one.

4 Apr 2012

Une excellente absinthe, très, mais alors très puissante, épicée comme on l'aime ; urticante sur les papilles, anisée juste ce qu'il faut et une longueur en bouche remarquable : plus d'une heure après, toujours le goût en bouche ! Anis vert, Absinthe et Fenouil envahissent votre esprit de leurs saveurs envoûtantes...
Bref, encore un tour de force qu'est cette absinthe Emile Pernot, un excellent produit qui ravira les connaisseurs.
Je conseille une dose d'absinthe pour 5 volumes d'eau tellement elle peut paraître brutale pour une 65°. Ne pas hésiter à mettre un sucre entier sur la cuillère.
(en comparaison, une PF1901 ou une L'Esprit d'Edouard de chez Combier paraissent moins puissantes malgré leur 68° et 72°)

26 Feb 2012

I really enjoy this absinthe and can say I'll be ordering more of it when the bottle runs dry.

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.
