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.
