Herbal & Spice Liqueur
Tempus Fugit Spirits Vieux Pontarlier Absinthe Liqueur has craft-distilled in Pontarlier, France, the historic "Capital of Absinthe." Select botanicals and Pontarlier-grown wormwood, which is considered the finest in the world, are distilled in Burgundy's chardonnay grape base spirit. Vieux Pontarlier was developed over five years at one of the last remaining absinthe distilleries still functioning in Pontarlier, using the distillery's original pre-ban logbook notes and antique alembic stills explicitly designed for making absinthe.
Tempus Fugit Vieux Pontarlier Absinthe has a pale peridot green color. Slowing dripping ice-cold water produces a lightly green-tinged and billowy opalescent cloudiness. The aroma is fresh, yet slightly briny and spicy with lightly mentholated and cacao notes. The flavors are multi-layered. The grape spirit provides a sophisticated base for subtle herbal undertones. The anise and fennel seed are sweet yet, well balanced, highlighting the minty/menthol taste of genuine Pontarlier wormwood. Enjoy!
