François Guy is more aniseed than average and is produced in the pure traditional way, according to an ancient house recipe. This absinthe will enchant both novices and confirmed absinthe drinkers. According to a recipe more than a century old, its colour is obtained entirely naturally from plants. François Guy is produced from old methods of distillation guaranteeing the character of the traditional taste of absinthe. It is therefore no surprise that it won a prize three times in a row at the Absinthiades in Pontarlier. A particular absinthe which merits being discovered!

Serving Suggestion

- At first, savour François Guy 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.

A solid absinthe that is rather polished. A sure bet.

29 Jan 2020

Very strong with a tasty flavor! Slightly powerful and delicate!

2 May 2019

C'est ma toute première absinthe et je la trouve vraiment très très bonne. Elle est subtile, délicate, idéale pour appréhender cet alcool. Il y a peu d'amertume mais beaucoup de saveur. Je la recommande chaudement pour tous ceux qui cherchent une absinthe pour commencer ou pour tous ceux qui cherchent simplement un bon produit :-)

29 Mar 2019

Absolutely delicious! A very nice verte, very refreshing, and not overpowering. A great discovery!

9 Nov 2018

Hallo, heute geht es dem „ABSINTHE FRANÇOIS GUY“ an den Kragen. Etwas angemacht vom „überdurchschnittlichen“ Anisgeschmack hat auch dieser sonst etwas unscheinbare Tropfen einen Platz neben den 40 anderen Sorten gefunden.

Der wiederzuverwendende Korkverschluss (Metallschraubverschluss stimmt nicht!!!) lässt direkt einen frischen, aromatischen Schwall guter Laune aus der Flasche steigen. Er riecht pur etwas süß und dennoch kräftig nach Alkohol. Die Flasche ist wesentlich dunkler als auf dem Bild, der Absinthe „nur“ sehr zart grün. Sehr hübsch. Pur genossen (das geht mit 45%) ist er doch sehr bissig und streng und offeriert hier eine starke Wermutnote. Das Etikett ist direkt etwas langweilig. Soll wohl nicht so ein „Proll“ sein.

Der Louche beginnt zügig und ist angenehm langsam und ölig. Es bleibt Zeit für ein gutes Foto. Auch am Glasrand setzt sich viel Öl ab. Es bleibt bei 1:1 Mischung eine fast undurchsichtige, zart grüne Wolke über. Ich setze hier erstmal nur 1:1 an. Man kann ihn so locker trinken. Anis ist wirklich reichlich vorhanden, das merkt man vor allem beim und kurz nach dem Abschlucken. Er ist darüber hinaus „einfach“. Nicht schlecht, aber auch nicht übermäßig spannend. Er ist mittelmäßig bitter, das harmoniert ganz gut mit dem Anis.

Ich lege 1:2 nach, laut Empfehlung die untere Grenze. Bis 1:5 wird hier angegeben…Das halt ich nicht für sinnvoll. 1:2 kommt er aber schon etwas besser zur Geltung, ist dabei aber sehr sehr sehr mild. Es scheint jetzt der Fenchel wesentlich besser durch, Der Wermut wird etwas verdrängt und der Anis kommt noch besser zur Geltung. Er wird so auch noch etwas frischer.

Insgesamt solide, für Anfänger sicher ein Tipp um sich nicht gleich zu erschrecken.

Ich geh jetzt mal auf die 1:5. Da kann man grundsätzlich komplett durchgucken. Sieht nicht so gut aus. Geschmacklich jetzt wieder etwas bitterer, aber echt wenig, da sehr wässrig. In der Mischung kann man das auch beruhigt La „Volvic Anis“ verkaufen. Der Absinthecharakter ist kaum da, es gleicht einem frischen Sommerdrink. Aber grundsätzlich ok.

Insgesamt schwanke ich zwischen 3 und 4 Sternen. Er ist grundsolide und gut. Ich glaube der hohe Anisgehalt macht die 3,75 Sterne, was dann hier 4 Sternen entspricht  Für Anfänger und Anispuristen eine Empfehlung. Macht weiter so Jungs!

Nice. Smooth. Delivery was very quick. We shall do business again.

17 Apr 2018

Very, very good. It's my "standard" absinthe with the right price.

21 Mar 2018

C'est une absinthe douce et anisée qui se laisse boire facilement. Ajouter du sucre fait disparaître l'amertume de l'absinthe et rend la boisson plus anisée encore, je recommande de ne pas ajouter de sucre. Sinon, c'est une bonne absinthe tant pour l'apéritif que pour le digestif (ou toute autre occasion). Excellente également pour les novices en matière d'absinthe car elle n'a pas de goûts très complexe. Je lui mets cinq étoiles car elle atteint très bien le but qu'on lui a assigné...

30 Jan 2018

Eine sehr gute Empfehlung für mich als Einsteiger. Guter Geschmack und nicht zu stark. Anis ist etwas zu vordergründig

16 May 2014

Simplement excellente. Arôme absinthe parfait qui rappelle immédiatement l'odeur de la feuille de la grande absinthe. Anisée, elle tient en bouche avec une note sucrée. Parfaite, mon absinthe!

24 Jun 2013

TRES BONNE ABSINTHE comme tous les produits de chez François GUY.

16 May 2013

Strong anise taste; great bottle. With sugar and water it tastes like Ouzo. It is already fairly sweet. I have used 1:1 ratio of absinthe to water, as that is when it clouds all the way up. Call me a Philistine, but I tried using the sugar water in which apricots are preserved in place of water over sugar, at a ratio of about a tsp. to 2 oz water, and it is very smooth. Let me know I'm not a philistine. This is the first absinthe I have ever had, as it was the least expensive of four bottles I got to try, and I'm saving the others until I am back in civilization again.

I can't rate the absinthe in stars yet because I have nothing to compare it to and I have not finished the bottle. If I submit this and am asked to rate it, it will get three stars just for that reason. It may well be a five-star absinthe. I know I love the bottle.

The fourth bottle is Green Velvet, which I anticipate to be excellent.

I chose this Francois Guy Absinthe because of the honest or down to earth mix of herbs and for the maker.

Yep, program would not let me hold off rating until I could do it well.

12 Jun 2009

Une absinthe très douce et très anisée. Belle coloration et petit trouble opale. C'est un véritable tour de magie fait par Guy au vue des 45° d'alcool. A essayer, très agréable.

22 Oct 2008

Bonne absinthe anisée(de ma région de franche-comté!), mais qui reste quand même assez simple et sans grande surprise, pas très originale. Mais elle reste un bon compromis et un bon rapport qualité prix, excellente pour le débutant. Elle lui donnera envie d'aller voir d'autres absinthes plus complexes ! .bien absinthement!.
