70cl 75% abv (150 proof)
Roquette 1797 is a complex and spicy absinthe, based directly on a late 18th century manuscript recipe. It represents the first serious attempt in the modern era to recreate an absinthe from the very birth of absinthe, when the drink straddled the line between liquor and potion, when it was as much magical and mysterious elixir as fashionable aperitif.
Roquette contains the classic trinity of anise, fennel and grande wormwood, together with several other herbs, some of which will be found in no other commercially available absinthe. The absinthe is batch distilled at the Pernot fils distillery in Pontarlier in an antique alambic, and is available in only very limited quantities.Read customer reviews at Feeverte
