Absinthe La Rebelle déchênée (Vin-Jaune Barrel aged) - Organic 50% - 100ml
La Rebelle Déchenée is a beautiful expression of the terroir of the Jura Massif. The three elements contributing to this sense of terroir are:
- Marc du Jura, a local spirit from Chardonnay and Savignin grapes, provides the base, with its fruity grappa-like notes. From local winery Le Domaine de Cavarodes.
- The Aymonier Distillery’s own herbs, including their highly aromatic wormwood, grown in the Jurassic soil.
- The whole thing is finished in a barrel formerly used to age the unique local wine Vin Jaune, which is aged over years in contact with indigenous yeast giving it a nutty, savoury flavour like a fine dry fino sherry.
The powerful aromas of these three elements complement each other well, with the fruitiness of the Marc du Jura base balancing out the aromatic wormwood, anise and coriander, and all rounded off by the vanilla, oak and touch of savouriness of the Vin Jaune barrel.
A unique and worthwhile creation.

The Aymonier distillery is perched at an altitude of 1100 in the small village of Les Fourgs, 10 kilometers from Pontarlier, once the world's most important town for absinthe distilling. The surrounding area was full of small farms like this one, producing high quality wormwood and herbs destined for use in absinthe.
The couple Mayra and Francois Aymonier make their four different organic absinthes using a very small still. This is a true micro-distillery.
The Aymoniers use traditional recipes combined with local absinthe-making knowledge to make the highest possible quality absinthe. This is also thanks to the grand wormwood, hyssop, lemon balm and artemisia pontica that they grow themselves, all without the use of pesticides or chemical fertiliser. Only the anise is grown elsewhere. Quite simply, the climate is too harsh in the region for this plant. Wormwood, however, thrives.
