The new batch of L'Ancienne!

L'Ancienne is the result of years of research and experimentation with ancient techniques and herbs cultivars. It is distilled by Stefano Rossoni and Martin Zufanek at Zufanek's distillery, in micro-batches (under 100lt), using the finest custom-distilled wine alcohol, Pontarlier wormwood, selected Florence fennel, green anise, moldavian melissa, hyssop and petite absinthe. Every batch is intentionally unique with a different balance between the main aromatic notes.



Author of the book Absinthe Antiques, S.B. MacDonald had this to say about the batch from 2013 - here is his review of Absinthe L'Ancienne:

L'Ancienne is a successful tribute to vintage absinthe, respectfully capturing the spirit of pre-ban. Its color neat is a natural rich amber/gold with hints of light olive. The louche develops evenly, and is thick and rich, with a well-defined layer on top. It ends in a creamy light green, with faint flashes of copper at the edges of the glass. Its aroma starts off powerfully, with strong earthy notes and the pleasant soft mustiness of wood and leather. This absinthe genuinely suggests the feeling of age. As water is added, the aroma softens, opening up with delicate floral and herbal elements, while still retaining its character.

L'Ancienne's flavor evokes a rich, sophisticated vintage absinthe; it is balanced, rounded, and complex. Wormwood and anise play well together, with the fruitiness of quality fennel softly tying it all together. Its finish unfolds gracefully with spice, pepper and citrus... all with gentleness and sophistication. A rich mouth-feel, slightly astringent, and a pleasant linger. I felt the finish was perfect for this absinthe's personality. The makers have created an absinthe that captures/mirrors time's effect on quality ingredients. It is delicious the day it arrives, but a bit of aging, and this absinthe will be stunningly good.

L'Ancienne is a carefully crafted homage to the absinthe of the Belle Époque that evokes a dimly lit Victorian sitting room, and reading a heavy leather-bound book by candlelight.

Zufanek, Czech Republic

The Zufanek Distillery was founded in 2000. At first, the family focused on the production of honey and fruit based liqueurs. In 2008, Martin started to distill absinthe and the St. Antoine was the first one of this distillery. Shortly after the launch of St. Antoine, Martin created La Grenouille, and absinthe Mead Base.

What's special about this distillery is that all fruit used for the production of their spirits are cultivated on their own orchards. Most of the herbs used for the absinthes are also grown by the Zufanek family themselves. This is why it's not surprising that the distillery received an organic certificate. Their mission is: 100% natural products.
