The Franche-Comté roots. The ultra premium gentian eau de vie is distilled with yellow gentian roots from the Franche-Comté region pulled out only in autumn. 15 kilos of roots are necessary to produce 1 litre of alcohol, and knowing that the roots only grow from an altitude of 800 meters in our Jura mountains and are harvestable only after 7 to 10 years of plant maturation, it explains the rarity of this eau-de-vie strictly regulated by the French law. The mix of water and roots is fermented during 6 weeks in order to provide the necessary alcohol for the gentian eau-de-vie double distillation. No additional alcohol is added so that the typical gentian bitter and suave taste is fully carried till the bottling. The wooden nose, the roots aromas and the extremely lingering mouth-feel of the gentian eau-de-vie never let anyone indifferent, you either love or hate it.

Ein wirklich edler Tropfen. Wir kommen gerne wieder darauf zurück.

29 Dec 2018

Je retrouve la gentiane que je trouvais en Suisse chez des paysans des hauts du canton de Neuchâtel. L'excellence n'a pas de frontières.

la meilleure des eaux de vie

21 Feb 2017

Produit exceptionnel mais aussi très particulier : il faut aimer et on peut ne pas aimer !

4 Jan 2017

c'était un cadeau
moi je n'en bois pas mais parait il c'est la meilleure

25 Oct 2013

Pour une gentiane achetée, c'est une gentiane qui se rapproche bien de celle que je fais distiller dans les Vosges après avoir ramassé et mis en fermentation ma propre récolte : très bien !

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.
