The Vieux Pontarlier is an historical absinthe carefully distilled in the Emile Pernot distillery. This absinthe is distilled in very old copper alambics (more than 100 years old) using Pontarlier wormwood (Artemisia absinthium), which is considered the most fragrant in the world, Provencal fennel seeds, green anise seeds and a variety of additional aromatic herbs and spices are meticulously selected for this recipe. Faithful to the tradition, no sugar of any kind was added, its intense and refreshing taste is obtained solely from the combination of plants and our master distiller's skills.

Its peridot green colour turns into opalescent clouds during the absinthe ritual where a slow drip of iced water is added from a carafe or fountain.

Its taste, subtle mix of bright anise, alpine herbs and wormwood with mentholated notes, makes the Vieux Pontarlier absinthe the refreshing and powerful drink par excellence.

Really loving this. I know some people enjoy it with out ice or sugar, but I am using both. Makes me feel like I’m at the Ritz in the 1920s with Hemingway and Fitzgerald!

19 Sep 2018

All great. Enjoyed the extra information. Thank you!

27 Sep 2017

Tout dépend des goûts mais personnellement, je la trouve excellente.
Très agréable en bouche avec des saveurs subtilement dosées.

15 Apr 2017

Delightfully minty, drinkable absinthe. I'll definitely buy it again.

30 Nov 2016

Great product, well packed, quick arrival. Thanks!

21 Nov 2016

Nice and well balanced. Nice light greenish and thick louche. One of the best I have tried among the French traditional type Absinthes.

9 Nov 2016

Smooth, green, flavorful and delicious. Highly recommended!

7 Apr 2016

Simply put, the name of the game here is smooth. This absinthe has just about the smoothest flavor profile I have tasted, and I have gone through quite a bit. I had a bottle of 1901 right before this which I swore was my favorite. Once this hit the block I was just astonished with what I was tasting. This is on another level. Complex and smooth, just perfect. Not an expert here mind you, but a well versed intermediate taster that knows whats what. This one here is something special and deserves respect. Just throw it in your bag and keep it moving.

7 Sep 2014

After having had tried around 15 high quality vertes this is still probably one my favorites. It has a light but yet still silky texture. Now the flavors is where it gets me, get a few sips in and it develops this uniuqe flavor under (but still strong) the anise and wormwood which i'm not totally sure what it is, but it keeps beckoning me for another sip. Never grows old on me this gem. Deserves the gold it won.

6 May 2014

Unlouched the colour is a brilliant peridot green, easily equaling the 'pair 'o' doe' eyes effect people talk about when first pouring a glass of the Jade PF 1901. The louche itself is quick to develop, starting with swirling oil patterns that quickly build to spiralling pale clouds, with a clear demarcation of colour as the louche gradually builds from top to bottom. This is a louche to rival that of the famous Jade range, no coaxing needed, no fancy tricks or timing, just drip water and watch the magic unfold - perfect. Colour after louche is a thick creamy looking pale yellowish green.

Taste wise this would be an excellent Absinthe for a first timer who might not be sure about the typical Anise/Licorice based taste of most other Absinthes. Two of the holy trinity take a back seat to the Wormwood, with the Anise and Fennel only coming through later as an after thought. This is a very Wormwood forward absinthe, and it takes a while for the palate to adjust before the full range of herbal flavours can be appreciated. This is the sort of absinthe it's hard to judge until you've more or less drunk your first full glass. It is extremely smooth and well blended, a little too well blended first impressions will tell you, but be patient and you can tease out subtle variations of flavour. There's the earthy spiciness of Wormwood that comes through first, followed by a minty warmth that coats and numbs the palate slightly - again showing this is a Wormwood forward Absinthe. The Anise and Fennel are there in the background, the last to arrive and barely noticeable until the last few sips of the drink when they start to make their presence a little more known. This isn't so much an absinthe you drink, as one you discover.

Imagine the roaring 20's, a smoky Jazz bar in downtown New Orleans, a few select bottles of bootleg absinthe under the counter for those in the know. If the Jade PF 1901 is the band leader up there in the spot light, then the Vieux Pontarlier is the pin curled blonde sitting in the booths waiting to be discovered.

27 Dec 2013

An absinthe that passes in quality, taste, and simple enjoyment. There are other wonderful French and Swiss absinthes, and I enjoy them very much, but Vieux Pontalier, has a special color, a special aroma, that causes me to reach for it rather than another. Absinthe has been a godsend to me. It relieves digestive pain in someone who has Crohn's disease; it is a drink that tastes wonderfully and makes life just a little better.

1 Jul 2013

Soft and perhaps a little lighter than absinthe la roquette which I think so far the best. But absinthe advice if you are starting to drink absinthe.

3 Jun 2013

Passe bien, se boit facilement; mais ça ne vaut pas la Roquette.

27 Mar 2013

A very good absinthe. Perhaps one notch below the taste of the Jade PF1901, but quite a good absinthe. I would recommend it to round out your collection of fine absinthes.

27 Mar 2013

Fresh and lively. Typical Pernot quality with fine colour, delicate nose, swirling louche and a deep, intense palette.
Enjoy.

23 Jun 2012

One of my favorites, refreshing wormwood bitter with a smooth anise undertones and a peppery finish. Distinct numbness on finish.

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.
