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.

Fresh wormwood to the fore, complex herbal with green anise, simplicity at its best.

Clean, long, herbal mouthful.

It isn’t wise to believe everything the Green Fairy says during an Absinthe rush.
