Description of the products

Libertine 72 is fine and powerful. Its balance and its various plants make it a ideal companion to discover absinthe.

Libertine 72 Intense was awarded the gold medal at the international competition in Lyon in 2019.

It is the sister of Libertine 55, with a higher alcohol content, but also, due to its complexity, very different to the first version.
Produced according to a recipe from last century (1894), Libertine 72 is an authentic absinthe.
It is entirely made with plants and seeds. Its colour is 100% natural.
In its composition are included mainly grand wormwood, green anise, star anise, liquorice, fennel, coriander, Melissa, hyssop and veronica.
Libertine 72 has the particularity of having been produced from a distilled blend (each plant macerates and is then distilled individually before blending)

An excellent absinthe for bitterness amateurs!
The absinthe glass Artois is a reproduction of an antique glass from 1895.

It has a faceted pattern around the lower half of the glass and a pleasing weight in the hand. The Artois glass is equally suited to use as an absinthe glass, water glass or beer glass.

The Artois glass is made from sturdy pressed glass in France. It is durable and dishwasher-safe.
The Bohème absinthe spoon fits snugly onto every average sized absinthe glass, and will be an eye catcher during the classic French ritual, but also the fire ritual.

This spoon fits perfectly in one of our hardcover spoon boxes, available in black and green.

10 authors have contributed 10 short stories to the book The kiss of the green fairy (in german: Der Kuss der Grünen Fee). In some of the stories, absinthe plays a major role, whereas in others it is only mentioned in passing.

Among the authors are Marie Reiners, Kathin Lange and Peter Hoeft. They are all presented in more detail at the end of the book. The publisher Ulrike Biefert is a film and television actor, as well as a screenwriter. Since 2006, she has turned her hand to prose.

The book combines historical facts with fictional experiencess. At the end of each story, the reader learns if the story is based on historical facts or if it is purely fictional.

Most of the stories take place in the time of the Belle Epoque, when absinthe was one of the most popular drinks. One of the short stories is entitled "The Ear" (German: Das Ohr) and refers to the situation when Vincent Van Gogh lost his ear. Another story mentions the development of the absinthe recipe and its primary use.

This book is only available in German.

Paul Devoille, France

1859:

The distillery was founded by Xavier Devoille. His son, Paul Devoille, was very dedicated to developing the distillery, and worked hard on its growth. This is why up until this day, the distillery is named after him. Paul Devoille was a very important person in Fougerolles, he held the position of the major for many years.

1986:

Due to the bad financial position the distillery was in, Jaques Veillet, the new owner of the distillery, decided to sell it to an experienced business man, who already invested into a couple of other distilleries inside and outside on France. René Miscault bought the distillery, and made some rapid administrational changes. He also expanded their product range, and opened the distillery for visitors to the public. These measures may seem drastic, however, they saved the distillery in the end. Today, Hugues Miscault, the son of René Miscault, runs the distillery.


Paul Devoille's Absinthe:


Their probably most popular absinthes, apart from the Libertines, and the Enigma Verte and Enigma Blanche. Absinthe Soixante-Cinq is a pretty interesting absinthe as well, with a quite spicy smell combined with a fruityness from the wine-alcohol base. Certainly, there are a lot of other spirits produced at Paul Devoille, such as eau-de-vies and liqueurs. From plum to strawberry, you can find nearly all of the common flavours.

Très bonne absinthe, un bon trouble. Les arômes sont riches, tant gustativement qu'olfactivement. Juste dommage que le livre soit intégralement en allemand.
