Inspired by a hand-written recipe for Creme de Cacao in the Distillery's recipe book dating back to the 1920's, La Maison Fontaine Chocolat has been masterfully refined using a combination of Pontarlier-grown Grande Absinthe and the finest chocolate infusion.

Sweet richness, combined with apparent notes of absinthe and chocolate create a unique soft liqueur. Fontaine Chocolat is the perfect after dinner drink to enjoy neat or poured over ice.

Fontaine Chocolat is also a wonderfully versatile liqueur that can be mixed into an array of sublime cocktails.

Emile Pernot, France

1899 :

the young Emile-Ferdinand Pernot, a native of the Fougerolles region, where he had trained as a distiller, joins the Parrot brothers and together they establish “Emile Pernot et Cie” located in Pontarlier. Emile-Ferdinand's son, Emile-Joseph (don't worry, none of their sons were called Emile-Emile even though they loved this first name), a survivor of the World War I trenches, later registers the famous name “Emile Pernot”.

2009 :

The distillery moves from the center of Pontarlier to the magnificent old Cousin Jeune building in La Cluse et Mijoux, at the foot of the Château de Joux, the very same building where the young Emile-Joseph Pernot learnt his trade a century earlier. And you know what? It was a pure coincidence – the building had been a post office and a fire station in the intervening years!

Absinthe distillation at Emile Pernot :

The two century-old copper alembics used by Emile Pernot for their absinthe distillations were made by the famous firm of Egrot in the early 1900s. They were especially designed and built for absinthe distillation, and they are the only stills of their kind in operation anywhere in the world. These stills allow the Pernot distillery to produce absinthes of exceptional quality according to methods unchanged for a century.

It is pretty tasty. Can certainly taste the chocolate and the wormwood. It is very sweet though. A little too sweet for my pallet.

This is repeat order, the chocolate taste combined with the liqueur is exquisite. I'm hooked and I will drink lots more of this nectar in the coming years

Nice but it doesn't have any recognisable flavour. Good when mixed with other things though!

Being a lover of sweet things, this liqueur is perfect for me. I'm just about to re-order and I'm sure I will be ordering more than one bottle. Whilst it is sweet, the unmistakeable taste of absinthe is very evident also. I like to finish a fine meal with this drink.

Nice surprise and a big hit at the party. The ladies prefer this far above absinthe proper - very good neat or mixed with mixers (LOL). Will order this again and again - wicked selecta !!!

It is as stated, a wonderful after dinner drink, if you like chocolate and you like a good wormwood bomb in your absinthe (although not an absinthe) a definite must try. I thought it was best over ice.
