La Maison Fontaine Verte is masterfully refined using an array of natural herbs including the world-renowned Pontarlier-grown Grande Absinthe. In combination with the natural herbal coloration this creates a classic floral Verte with rich herbal and peppery notes.

Connoisseurs believe that the perfect serve is to drip 3 measures of chilled water from an absinthe fountain over 1 measure of Fontaine Verte. This creates a stimulating, refreshing drink with a vintage green louche. Some prefer a more intense flavour and sip it neat or pour it over ice.

Fontaine Verte is also a wonderfully versatile spirit that can be mixed into an array of sublime cocktails.

Emile Pernot, France

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.

The world of Absinthe is a new world for me, but I am a so called super taster. Unfortunately I am not so fond of bitter. And I prefer made as natural as possible. I used 1/3 part La Maison Fontaine Verte, and 2/3 parts water and two sugar cubes. This one makes me want to taste more. I hope the absinthe I will drink i the future is as good as this one. Love it!

This was my introduction to the world of Absinthe. Glad I did some research before buying so I managed to steer clear of the faux products and get the real stuff instead. Living in Norway I have to stay below 60% alc/vol (_60% is defined as narcotics by law here) so I'm glad there's some quality products available. And this is one of them.

I had heard good stuff about La Maison Fontaine Blanche so I went for the Verte version for purely aesthetic reasons since I wanted a taste of the real and infamous green fairy.

I'm reviewing this now after I have tasted a few others as well and I can safely say that this holds up to other quality Absinthes, La Maison Fontaine Blanche included.

My first glass was with about 2/3 ice water and one sugar cube. I quickly went away from adding sugar and have not looked back.

An aromatic taste explosion. As it should be.
