The Distillerie Paul Devoille is located in Fougerolles, Haut Saone in North East France, close to the Alsace region. It was founded in 1859 by Xavier Devoille, the father of Paul, and is considered one of the top 10 distilleries in France for fruit eau-de-vie. It was purchased in 1985 by René de Miscault and is now run by his son, Hugues. Verte de Fougerolles Absinthe was created upon request according to specifications from the directors of Liqueurs de France in 2003. The absinthe had to be distilled and contain grande and petite absinthe, a grape-origin based alcohol, be naturally green from the addition of traditional plants in the colouring step, have no added sugar, and be 72% Alc./Vol. in order to best hold the colour and present the aromas to the fullest. Verte de Fougerolles became an instant success and was soon followed by Blanche de Fougerolles.
This is an outstanding, unfiltered premium absinthe made from a combination of several aromatic herbs and plants, including grande and petite wormwood, anise, fennel and hyssop. It uses a grape-base alcohol, has no added sugar, and is bottled at 72°, in order to hold its natural green colour and present its aromas to the fullest. Made by following the distillery's own technique of distilling each plant separately, blending the resulting full alcohol distillates and then finishing with an 'esprit vert' ('green spirit' - a natural maceration of additional plants in grape spirits, including veronica, a.k.a.'speedwell' - adding tea-like aromas) which is mixed in during the final colouring stage of production. It louches beautifully, and is complex and intense. Sure to please those who are searching for a spicy, yet traditional absinthe. It represents one of the best quality/cost values in modern traditional absinthes. 72% alc./vol. - notes partially sourced from www.absinthesonline.com
