Absinthe Verte is produced by Awen Nature, the first organic absinthe distillery in Brittany, France.

With its alcohol content of 45%, this absinthe isn't as strong as the other absinthes from Awen Nature. We recommend preparing this absinthe with less water than usual.

Julien Fanny uses 5 distilled herbs from organic farming along with lemon verbena to produce the absinthe verte. This gives the absinthe its green color and nuances of herbal tea. Lemon verbena is a traditional medicinal plant that belongs to the Verbenaceae family. For the ancients Romans verbena was a sacred plant, used when making sacrifices to the god Jupiter.

The label shows a mystical figure, alluding to the cultural significance of verbena.

If you want to experience even more intense verbena aromas, we recommend trying Awen Nature's lemon verbena spirit, a lightly sweetened spirit.

Along with all other spirits of Awen Nature, this absinthe is also certified organic.

Awen Nature

In the small town Chevaigné in Brittany, France, Julien Fanny has founded the Awen Nature distillery, realizing a longstanding dream of his.

He produces the first, high quality organic spirits in Brittany. This includes, among others, 4 absinthes and one ‘almost-liqueur’ flavored using verbena , that we are now proud to offer you in our shop.

Below you'll learn more about the small distillery, Julien’s bond with nature and tradition, and his use of traditional production methods. And most importantly – Julien’s willingness to experiment and innovate – of the 4 absinthes released by Awen Nature, 3 of them use completely innovative plants to give them colour: Saffron, Verbena and something wild and secret Julien would not share with us!

The genesis of Awen Nature



Ever since he was a child, Julien watched his aunt preparing different plant-based products. That is how his passion for plants and their properties developed.

When Julien had to give up his profession as artist blacksmith, he knew that this would be the right time to turn his passion for plants into his profession. After an extensive research of old absinthe recipes, he founded the Awen Nature distillery in 2013.

This has been supported by crowdfunding which allowed Julien to purchase a bigger copper pot still in order to increase the production volume. He was also able to buy the plants and herbs that he needed for the distillation.

All of the Awen Nature spirits are produced according to traditional recipes and old production methods. These are the same methods that were used before the absinthe ban in 1915.

The labels were designed by the artist Gwladys Rose. Celtic traditions from Brittany have been taken as an inspiration for them. Some of the labels depict nymphs or fairies that represent the fusion between humanity and nature.

An environmental friendly production



The word “Nature” in the name of the distillery already gives a clue to the importance of an environmental friendly production at the distillery.

Sustainability and environmental protection play an important role. Julien uses recyclable materials and environmentally friendly packaging. He even delivers his spirits by himself by bicycle to customers in Rennes, the nearest large town.

A product range of unique organic spirits



The distiller loves to experiment with new plants in order to discover other aromas and to perfect the taste of his spirits.

This is also reflected in his product range: the blanche is a refreshing change from a typical Swiss bleue, using some more atypical plants in the recipe. The verte is colored with verbena, and the ‘jaune’ is colored with saffron, and the red absinthe is colored with a local wild plant that Julien is keeping well to himself! These are all absolute innovations, while remaining true to the spirit of real absinthe and using authentic traditional techniques.

All of his spirits are certified organic and all of the herbs come from 100% organic farming. The majority even comes from the immediate surroundings of the distillery. The plants are macerated in organic grain spirit for 2 days and then distilled. Julien doesn’t add any artificial colors or preservatives.

Excellente absinthe, ma préférée pour le moment après huit dégustations dont la célèbre apocalypse. Le parfum particulièrement doux de l'anis en comparaison d'autres marques permet d'apprécier la saveur des autres plantes et sa faible teneur en alcool en fait une boisson très agréable.

Pas mauvaise mais il ne faut pas la diluer plus que 1 + 1 !!! Ce qu'il fait qu'elle revient beaucoup plus chère que d'autres absinthes bien meilleures, comme la Libertine.
