Abisinthe 72 is a bitter absinthe with a simple taste. It will suit amateurs of absinthes light on the palate. Ideal to refresh yourself.

The ancient recipe of this sugarless absinthe is obtained especially by distillation of a mixture of green anise and wormwood. However, many other plants, finely selected, are also part of its composition: star anise, fennel, gentian or even mugwort.

Abisinthe 72's natural colour is obtained by infusion of plants.

Lemercier, France

1811,

The Lemercier family used to run a farm and distill Kirsch and Plum Brandy for mostly their own use, but for other people from around Fougerolles as well. After noticing the rising demand for their spirits, the family decided to found their own distillery in 1811. Nicolas started distilling absinthe around the same time, however, he had to stop during 1915 due to the worldwide ban of absinthe.

1991,

After finishing his business studies, Alain Aureggio, Desle'S grand-grandson, decided to take up the family business.

Lemercier's absinthes and liquors :


Their probably most popular absinthe is the Absinthe Abisinthe – available in a 72°, 72° Amer and a 45° version. These are classed as the ideal absinthe for people discovering this drink. Some more absinthes in the Lemercier product range are the Absinthe Coeur d'Absinthe double and triple distillation – two significant blanches! Furthermore, Lemercier distills several eau-de-vies and the Green Demon Absinthe.

Unfortunately abisinthe 72 is not so good as other products from Lemercier distillery I have tried.

This absinthe is very light in flavor – much alcohol but not much anise and herb taste. The louche is one of the weakest I have ever seen. You will need a really ice-cold water and very slow dripping to see any louche. Also too pale color for 72%.

Amer version is much better.

By Fine quality, low tast

To my taste, the "anis" is a bit weak, and that is why I am only giving it tree stars, but the quality seems to be good and if you are to Absinth with lower anis tast I would recommend this Absinth.

Not quite as tasty as its cousin Amer but still a beautiful absinthe. Good for folks who like their absinthe a bit less licorice-y.
