All of La Maison Fontaine's fine beverages are produced traditionally in Pontarlier, France. With the La Maison Fontaine RUEVERTE Explore set you can try both of their fine absinthes, along with their exceptional chocolate and wormwood liqueur (scored 5/5 points - 'exceptional' - by Simon Difford). La Maison Fontaine's range of ultra premium absinthe products are handcrafted amongst the beautiful Jura Mountains in Pontarlier, France: a place renowned for its Absinthe history. La Maison Fontaine is handcrafted in accordance with more than 100 years of tradition. The distillery actually produced absinthe prior to the French absinthe ban in 1915. A Feuille II absinthe spoon finishes the set, the ideal tool for adding sugar your drink in the traditional manner. The set is accompanied by a card with tasting notes for each absinthe and explaining the background to the distillery.

Nice gift set especially for novices. The La Maison collection was delicious. The Verte was nice and had a classic taste to it. I used two small sugar cubes with ice cold water and the result was super refreshing! I think the sugar actually did enhance the flavor very well. The Blanche was light and refreshing also. Not overly complex. Again, great for novices who are getting to know absinthe for the first time. Longtime drinkers may enjoy their mild, classic taste. Unfortunately I can't comment on the Chocolat as it was broken during shipment! Guess I'll have to grab a bottle later. Four stars because while the absinthes were very pleasing, I couldn't really find a unique characteristic to put them over the top.

This was Fabulous ! I'm new to the world of Absinthe & this was my first time trying it. I ordered Maison Fountain sample set. I only tried the original green, it was wonderful ! I dripped ice water over a sugar cube and the louche was cloudy green. It was so sweet and smoothe & I love the anise flavor ! It was delicious and like nothing I ever tasted ! Now I did a half serving, 1 oz. Absinthe & 2 oz. Ice water. It was perfect ! I'm glad I halfed the recipe because it is a strong liquor. It was wonderful & I can't wait to try the Blance & chocolate I fused absinthe !!!

Emile Pernot, Frankreich

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.
