Sans Frontières, is made following a recipe from the 1890s. The Aymonier distillery uses almost only herbs grown on their own farm, at an altitude of 1100m. Sans Frontières means ‘without borders’, which may be a joke referring to the distillery’s proximity to the Swiss border.

Sans Frontières is balanced in terms in taste, although the wormwood is relatively strong, as is true of all the absinthe made by the Aymonier Distillery. Sans Frontières is the first organic absinthe to have been made in the Pontarlier area.

At the 2016 Absinthiades competition, Sans Frontières won the Bronze medal.

We recommend serving Sans Frontières 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.

Full 5 stars in the category of absinthe blanches. Because of the amount, and quality, of the wormwood used. Sans Frontières louches slowly at a slow cold water drip (no sugar used, for the record). At first, oily droplets appear, then come clouds of anise/anethole. This absinthe has a cool, velvety mouthfeel when sipped and the wormwood aroma lingers very nicely. This is just the kind of blanche I was looking for.

Way too flowery in taste for me. Not sure if its the lemon balm but not to my liking. Gave it away to a friend. Will not recommend or buy again.

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

Wow! Absolutely fantastic! It drinks like a fresh alpine meadow after a cool rain. For a blanche, this is packed with flavors; sweet, rich, strong.
