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!

Stephanie; your customer service and personal attention have been top drawer.
the one time (two Years ago) when an order got hung up, you followed up (I enjoyed our phone conversation) and all was well. That personal attention and the fact you sell an excellent product is the reason I will continue to order from your company. (the Gummy Bears don't Hurt either) Blazah

Very refreshing, simple and elegant absinthe that really brings a relaxed state of mind. Not too laborious or overly complex like some of the "high end" absinthes - this one is simple and at the same time real enjoyable one. A great after work or summer evening drink that leaves you wanting for more. Will buy again for sure!

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

Lower alcohol, lower priced and more than reasonable tasting absinthe. The weakest point is the louche. The effect is excellent. An essential staple for ending a bigger evening on the absinthe so that you don't "burn" all of the much more pricey high quality stuff in your collection!

As a relative newcomer who has tasted only a few good absinthes and been trapped by a couple of imitations, pardon me if I keep my language simple! As a beginner I always cautiously dripped water through a sugar cube, not being very keen on strong bitterness. This absinthe had an intriguing aroma and taste, the anise clear but not overwhelming, and the sugar offset the bitterness. I detected what I would describe as an interesting earthy taste as well. I tried it without sugar to distract, and was glad I did. I found a blend of tastes, none ovewhelming. I also took it with a little less water (a half finger below the upper mark on a Pontarlier glass) and enjoyed that. If I'd more experience with other absinthes my star rating might have gone another way, but my three stars is cautious, and I considered four.
