The Green Fairy's weapon of choice.
Guy distillery was founded in 1890 by Armand Guy. Today it is the last family-owned business in Pontarlier, where four generations of distillers have practiced their art since 1890. The distillery was established on Rue des Lavaux in Pontarlier, the Capitol of Absinthe in the past and close to a French military base, giving the French troops easy access to this green elixir.
Francois Guy Absinthe, a four-time winner of the Golden Absinthe Spoon at the Absinthiades, has a fresh and delicious bouquet, and the influence of wormwood on the palate. At 45% ABV it is significantly gentler compared to other Absinthes, so you can enjoy it without sugar and with less cold water than usual.
The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Francois Guy Absinthe and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
