La Faucille absinthe is the first green absinthe from Aymonier.

The light green colour is completely natural and is obtained by macerating more herbs in the newly-distilled absinthe.

This absinthe has an intense wormwood note, along with a very fresh feeling and pleasant length to the finish. Compared to the other absinthe from Aymonier, La Faucille has a more herbal aspect to it.

All the absinthe made by Mayra and Francois Aymonier at their distillery are of a very high quality, due to the herbs being home grown and of the finest grade. The wormwood in particular benefits from the high altitude at which it is grown. 1100 metres above sea level!

We recommend serving La Faucille Absinthe with three to four parts chilled water.

Aymonier, France

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.

Currently my favorite go-to bottle. It’s smooth, but yet has a very prominent wormwood taste. It reminds me of picking a wormwood sprig from the garden, and chewing it, but without the unpleasant edgy flavor. I don’t know how they did it but this absinthe presents a beautiful wormwood flavor without overwhelming bitterness. Other herbs are in the background utilized to round out the taste. Not licorice tasting at all, so if you aren’t crazy about anise and fennel, you should try this.

The scent and taste of spring. Sensual and foreboding as the inevitable autumn which awaits us all.

Love this precisely because of its inbalance and intense wormwood note. My personal favourite, and a trully wonderful absinthe.

Really nice absinthe - powerful Aa profile and superb herbal quality all around. No problems with the louche - a really nice absinthe! Could use a bit more anise for balance but really quite good!!!

Very strong - powerful - wormwood profile - unique! However... could use a bit more balance... anise and fennel somewhat lacking.
