Mellow and with a light aniseed flavour, Libertine 55 is a refined absinthe. Very original.

It won a prize in the 2002 and 2005 Absinthiades in Pontarlier, France.
Libertine 55, produced according to a recipe from last century (1894), is an authentic absinthe, sugarless.
It is entirely made with plants and seeds. Its colour is 100% natural.

Contrary to Libertine 72, Libertine 55 contains liquorice which can be clearly recognized in the taste.

Libertine 55 has the particularity of having been produced from a distilled blend (each plant macerates and is then distilled individually before blending).

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.

Initially a Libertine 72 opposer, I grew to like it and 55 was a very pleasant surprise. Mellower, yet not watery; for an even lower price, you'll get the same full body and louche of 72 (if not more) but without such a strong alcoholic hit. I just bought two more bottles of this, as it's working really well to get by.

light flavor. anise is there but not overpowering, a good one for people who aren't very used to it. The louche is exceptional, a couple drops of water and the cloudiness comes. The coloring is amber more than green, but its very drinkable

I quit enjoyed this beverage. It had a mild flavour but, flavour none the less. Very lovely.

This has a sharp taste which I like, but at the same time a few suble tastes as an undertone.
It's one of my personal favorites.

A good absinthe with a good color and a nice louche.
The initial and after taste are very good bit in the middle there is an almost musty taste for which it loses a star. It is a slightly bitter absinthe and goes well with sugar.

The best standard absinthe. “Lemercier" and “Coulin" are excellent. However, “Paul Devoille" is best in Fougerolles. "Libertine 55" is not a big bouquet as dream “La Coquette". Bat, it is a corsage that should be loved. I will be able to recommend this absinthe to my customer with the conviction. If when he(her) drinks absinthe for the first time.
