- During the Belle Epoque, after Pontarlier, Fougerolles had the highest number of producers of absinthe. Sometimes some of the casks used in Fougerolles were sent to Pontarlier to cover their needs.
- Verte de Fougerolles participated in the 2007 Absinthiades ; it was awarded 7th place.
The Devoille distillery was founded in 1859. It still bears the name of its founder, Paul Devoille, since he largely contributed to its success and the beginning of the century. He is to be thanked for the recipe of Libertine (1894), now preciously kept at the Musée des Eaux de Vie in Lapoutroie, France.
After having belonged to Raymond Gouttefroy (son-in-law of Paul Devoille), the distillery was handed over to René de Miscault in 1985. The latter considerably changed the running of the company and enlarged the range of its products and also opened the Paul Devoille distillery to the public.
Today it is Hugues de Miscault, the son of René de Miscault, who runs this family distillery.
- At first, savour Verte de Fougerolles with half a piece of sugar. Then add more or less according to your taste.
- For one measure of absinthe (3cl), add 2 to 5 measure of fresh water.

A strong absinthe with a great taste. It has a fantastic milky white louche and a good anise aroma and taste.

Nose (before adding water): very green, it goes from a hay hardly dry smell to a mowed lawn scent. (!!!)
Palate : A fresh anise and a nice length that continues on notes of dried leaves.
A very interesting absinthe that combines freshness and richness of a real savoury alcohol.
Very good buy. Thank you.
PS: Good job on the website and the advise !
