L'EXTRÊME D'ABSENTE BITTER
'MADE IN PROVENCE'
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 scrublands, it lovingly rewrites the recipes for its Aperitifs and Spirits. No need to wonder where this subtle blend of many flavours originates. It comes from one of the most fragrant regions of France, where expertly selected ingredients are combined to make products worthy of the “Made in Provence” label.
l'Extrême d'Absente is a bold bitter made from absinthe plants, it is not so much a drink in its own right but a flavour enhancer. Purists will simply add it to water...l'Extrême d'Absente with a thujone content three times more concentrated, comes in an ambitious packaging: a bottle with its own pipette.
The pipette adds to the thrill, excitement and mystery of l'Extrême d'Absente; giving it an aura of mystique...add a few drops directly to a cocktail or beer or onto a sugar cube!
Nose: A powerful aroma of absinthe and a highly aromatic southernwood adds a hint of camphor. The powerful, complex aromas mask any aniseed present in the drink.
Palate: A powerful aromatic attack from the absinthes. The wormwood infusion adds structure and balance. The alcoholates of aniseed, mint and lemon balm add finesse, freshness and aromatic persistence.
