It is the replica of an ancient absinthe, beautifully combining the fruity flavours of fennel to those of a powerful Grand Wormwood. A success.

IT was awarded the “Cuillère d'Or” at the 2006 Absinthiades in Pontarlier, France, as well as the silver medal at the “International Wine & Spirits Competition” the same year.

La Blanchette was produced by Combiers between 1899 and 1915. Today it is Ted Breaux who produces it in an antique still true to the original recipe.

A clear French absinthe worthy of the greatest Swiss ones.

Serving Suggestion

- At first, savour Blanchette with half a piece of sugar. Then add more or less according to your taste. - For one measure of absinthe (3cl), add 2 to 5 measure of fresh water.

Did you know?

- In 1920, the Combier distillery purchased stills from Maison Pernod Fils. Ted Breaux nowadays produces absinthes such as Nouvelle-Orléans, Edouard, Verte Suisse and… Blanchette. - This distillery in Saumur specialised in the production of Guignolet (a liqueur made from sour cherries). However, Blanchette was their flagship product and the most sold! No doubt a sign of the craze for absinthe in those days. - Blanchette participated at the 2007 Absinthiades where it was awarded third place.

History

The Combier distillery was founded in 19834. Today it is the oldest distillery in the Loire region still in production. Apart from absinthe, it produces, according to ancestral methods, refined alcohols: liqueurs qnd alcohols, but also syrups from the region's fruit. The main products are Triple Sec, one of the distillery's original creations, the Royal Combier as well as a wide variety of fruit liqueurs for cocktails.

Delightful and very refreshing. For me it has a delicious floral finish.

J'ai une préférence pour les absinthe chaudes en bouche. Celle-ci ne m'a pas marqué.

J ean-Baptiste buys more alembics and establishes the Combier distillery on the rue Beaurepaire, where it still is located today. This is the starting point of a booming business, Combier now sells its liqueurs all over the world.

 

1861 :

Jean-Baptiste Combier's son James, only 19 years old, learns the art of distillation before traveling to England, Algeria, Italy, Greece and Egypt, from where he brings new essences and herbs for Combier Liqueurs.

Combier owns its own fields of 2 wormwood cultivars, harvested by hand and traditionally dried in an attic. There are 10 alembics from the 19th century in the distilling room, including 8 from Egrot (the famous maker of Pernod Fils alembics at the time).
