The premier independent absinthe resource since 2003

Musset didn't write the way he did because he drank absinthe, instead he drank for the same reason for which he wrote just like that: namely out of despair.

Distilled by Francois Guy in Pontarlier for absinthe merchant Alandia. Interesting to see this coming from Francois Guy as it goes against many of his own beliefs about absinthe.

Absinthe reviews

This absinthe was one I bought while in Pontarlier for the Absinthiades in October. It's actually distilled by the Guy distillery, makers of the Francois Guy absinthe. It is made specifically for Alandia in Germany.

Tasting it is not a very special thing at all. It is rather uninteresting, tends to go towards the anise bomb that Francois Guy is but it stays a little less so. There's a noticable difference in the amount of wormwood but not enough. Over all the Partisane is a rather boring absinthe and nothing I would recommend.
