For Grande Absente Absinthe, Distilleries et Domaines de Provence have stayed true to, as closely as possible, the traditional recipes for Absinthe, but using less sugar have given a more predominant absinthe flavour. The infusions and essences of mugwort, star anise, aniseed, lemon balm and mints lend Grande Absente its unique bitter profile.
Appearance: Bright asparagus green.
Nose: Camphor and menthol notes with fresh anise and spice.
Taste: Punchy absinthe dominates before developing.
Finish: Absinthe gives way to a fresh lingering spice.
Overall: Vibrant Absinthe characteristics backed by plenty of spice.
Grande Absente Absinthe is less sweet than other Absinthe brands on the market, making it a good choice for those who find the traditional method of serving Absinthe too sweet.
If the person you’re buying for is a fan of the Grande Absente Absinthe, you could also try Tarquin’s Cornish Pastis or Butterfly Boston Absinthe.

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.
