Absenteroux is a vermouth, an alcohol-fortified wine, produced with white wine from Provence, herbs, spices and distillates. Complex and subtle, with its fresh melding notes of absinthe, gentian and spices. Absenteroux is elaborated from wormwood, as per the original recipe for genuine vermouth.
Nose: Herbal gentian and wormwood with lemon balm and anise.
Taste: Pronounced wormwood with notes of white grape and sage.
Finish: Bittersweet with zesty citrus and gentian bitterness.
Overall: An exceptionally aromatic style of vermouth.
Absenteroux is a unique take on the French vermouth style. Perfect gift for those looking to get experimental with their cocktail concoctions.
If the person you’re buying for is a fan of the Absenteroux, you could also try Lillet Blanc or RinQuinQuin.

ABOUT THE DISTILLERY
Enter into a history packed with taste, the history of a distillery which has inherited ancestral traditions but certainly knows how to move with the times. Distilleries et Domaines de Provence selected the location of Forcalquier, the capital of flavours and fragrances, where it has remained to this day. In the heart of rural Provence, in an authentic setting between mountains and scrubland, it lovingly rewrites the recipes for its aperitifs and spirits. Infamous as one of the most fragrant regions of France, where expertly selected ingredients are combined to make products worthy of the ‘Made in Provence’ label.
