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.

The Absinthe Ritual - How to prepare an absinthe

Switzerland

Couvet, Switzerland - where it all started in 1797. Located in the beautiful Val de Travers near the French border, and just across the French town of Pontarlier. Pernod had production in Couvet, as did many other distillers and many of the finest absinthes came from the Val de Travers region.
