La Maison Fontaine®‘s range of ultra premium absinthe products are handcrafted amongst the beautiful Jura Mountains in Pontarlier France a place renowned for its Absinthe history.
La Maison Fontaine® is the World’s most awarded blanche absinthe – including IWSC Gold & Best in Class. In the words of the Judges: “Setting the standard … delightful and invigorating”. Whether it is our Fontaine Blanche or Verte savoured with iced water slowly dripped from an Absinthe fountain, or mixed in one of our unique cocktails, we think you will discover one of the Finest French Absinthes ever created. And we have now added Fontaine Chocolat, a chocolate absinthe liqueur, to complete the Fontaine family.
La Maison Fontaine® has been masterfully refined using a range of natural herbs. Some we’re keeping secret, others we’re happy to shout about – notably, our world-renowned Pontarlier-grown Grande Absinthe, which, together with green anise and fennel, is the “holy trinity” of any real absinthe.
La Maison Fontaine® Absinthe is distilled in the world’s oldest absinthe stills – handcrafted by our distiller in accordance with more than 100 years of tradition. Our distillery actually produced absinthe prior to the French absinthe ban in 1915.
La Maison Fontaine® Blanche, the World’s most awarded blanche absinthe, is masterfully refined using an array of natural herbs including our world-renowned Pontarlier-grown Grande Absinthe.
Sweet and refreshing taste characterised by rich floral notes with hints of lemon and mint, Fontaine Blanche is a classic absinthe with a contemporary twist.
La Maison Fontaine® Verte, a newly crafted close relative to the Fontaine Blanche, is our take on the green fairy – la fee verte.
The Pontarlier-grown Grande Absinthe in combination with the natural herbal colouration creates a classic complex floral Verte with rich herbal & peppery notes. By adding chilled water to Fontaine Verte, a stimulating and refreshing drink is created with a vintage green louche. Some prefer a more intense flavour and sip it neat or pour it over ice.
La Maison Fontaine® Chocolat is our chocolate absinthe liqueur inspired by a hand-written recipe for Crème de Cacao in our Distillery’‘s recipe book dating back to the 1920s.
Fontaine Chocolat has been masterfully refined using a combination of our Pontarlier-grown Grande Absinthe and the finest chocolate infusion. Fontaine Chocolat is characterized by sweet richness, combined with apparent notes of Grande Absinthe and chocolate, which create a unique soft liqueur.
Another French absinthe revolution from La Maison Fontaine®!
Fontaine Chocolat is the perfect after dinner drink to enjoy neat or poured over ice with a pinch of chili salt! Don’t believe us? Try it out.
