Absinthe L'Entêté

medailles-entete-combier

In 2010, Franck Choisne was instrumental in obtaining an amendment to the 1988 Decree forbidding the use of fennel in absinthe. According to historical recipes belonging to the distillery, fennel is an essential ingredient for producing authentic absinthe. To celebrate this historic event and his personal victory, in 2010 Franck Choisne created a green absinthe, naturally coloured with chlorophylle which he called L’Entêté, (stubborn in French). The plants are distilled and fresh leaves are infused to release their aroma and colour in the traditional manner. Fresh and herbaceous, L’Entêté is true to the spirit of the great absinthes of the 19th-century.

Absinthe l'Entêté

In 2010 Franck Choisne created a green absinthe, naturally coloured with chlorophylle which he baptised L’Entêté, (which means stubborn in French). Its nine ingredients give it both its tender almost almond green colour and captivating fennel and aniseed nose. In the mouth, a skillful balance between the sweetness of fennel and the floral potency of the grand absinthe is pleasantly underscored by a faint bitterness and an aniseed finish. L’Entêté is an unusually complex absinthe.
