La Charlotte has a powerful bitterness and a fruity nose. An easy and agreeable way to discover absinthe.

La Charlotte, like its cousin Libertine 72, is an authentic product.
Its colour is a 100% natural, obtained by infusion of different flowers and leaves (to extract the chlorophyll)
La Charlotte has the particularity of having been obtained from a distilled blend. (each plant macerates and is then distilled individually before blending)

A good introduction to absinthe!

Paul Devoille, France

1859:

The distillery was founded by Xavier Devoille. His son, Paul Devoille, was very dedicated to developing the distillery, and worked hard on its growth. This is why up until this day, the distillery is named after him. Paul Devoille was a very important person in Fougerolles, he held the position of the major for many years.

1986:

Due to the bad financial position the distillery was in, Jaques Veillet, the new owner of the distillery, decided to sell it to an experienced business man, who already invested into a couple of other distilleries inside and outside on France. René Miscault bought the distillery, and made some rapid administrational changes. He also expanded their product range, and opened the distillery for visitors to the public. These measures may seem drastic, however, they saved the distillery in the end. Today, Hugues Miscault, the son of René Miscault, runs the distillery.


Paul Devoille's Absinthe:


Their probably most popular absinthes, apart from the Libertines, and the Enigma Verte and Enigma Blanche. Absinthe Soixante-Cinq is a pretty interesting absinthe as well, with a quite spicy smell combined with a fruityness from the wine-alcohol base. Certainly, there are a lot of other spirits produced at Paul Devoille, such as eau-de-vies and liqueurs. From plum to strawberry, you can find nearly all of the common flavours.

This is now my favorite absinthe. It has the full characteristics of other more famous Vertes de Fougerolles, and with 55% vol. it’s a good daily “not so strong” absinthe. Wonderful louche and freshness, full of green balanced aromas. At a good price!

In a sea of over-priced and over-hyped Absinthes(most of which non-deserving) this one is a best buy and a stand-out . It's truly real Absinthe with the appropriate herb balance and a wine alcohol base(too many so-called absinthes use grain or beet alcohol-these are NOT real absinthes and they usually taste quite harsh and caustic as a result ...)
A wonderful finish of fennel and wormwood that goes on and on and ......
Get this while you can . It's a proper Absintheur's best kept secret for value and taste !

I instantly fell for La Charlotte, and absinthe with taste but however discrete.
Ideal to discover gently, perfect for a group tasting in my opinion, in a warm summer breaze with provencal scents.
