Lemercier ‘Abisinthe’ 72% – Review

This absinthe is produced by the distillery Lemercier Frères, based at Fougerolles, France, who produce a wide range of specialty liqueurs (and vinegars!). A history of the facility and the family can be found at their website, and we also recommend visiting their Australian site, which features a more concise history of the distillery, plus a fantastic video clip of Lemercier being prepared traditionally with a fountain.

The absinthe comes in a wide shouldered olive green bottle tapering to the base, using a synthetic copolymer closure, and elegantly labelled using borders with old world motifs including star anise depictions.

Upon opening the bottle, the scent of anise and fennel very quickly filled the room. A measure poured into a Pontarlier style glass revealed the absinthe to be a distinct yellow to straw colour, with no immediate discernable green tones.
