Gift boxed presentation with absinthe spoon. Francois Guy is a distilled absinthe from Pontarlier, finished at only 45% alcohol. Amazingly, this does not detract from its full taste, which has gained a very strong following. It has a light olive green tint which turns milky white (louches), on addition of water. The nose is complex and herbal with green anis and fresh wormwood to the fore. It has a clean, refreshing taste and makes an ideal aperitif diluted with 2 to 3 parts of water.
