La Maison Fontaine® is an ultra-premium range of Absinthe products. Winner of Blanche Absinthe IWSC Gold and Best in Class. La Maison Fontaine®‘s range of Absinthe products are handcrafted amongst the beautiful Jura Mountains in Pontarlier France – a place renowned for its Absinthe history.
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.
You’ve heard about the Green Fairy – La Fee Verte. Our take on the green fairy is called Fontaine Verte. We did however start out with a white fairy – Fontaine Blanche. A clear absinthe. The Blanche style became increasingly popular after the absinthe ban in certain European countries, as it was easier for bootleg distillers and smugglers to hide a clear liquid from the authorities than a greenish one.
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.
Fontaine Verte is also a wonderfully versatile spirit that can be mixed into an array of sublime cocktails. We call this The Art of Imagination.
La Maison Fontaine® Blanche, the Worlds 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.
Re-discover a Lost Art. Connoisseurs believe that the perfect serve is to drip 3 measures of chilled water from an absinthe fountain over 1 measure of Fontaine Blanche. This creates a stimulating, refreshing drink with a silky white louche. Some prefer a more intense flavour and sip it neat or pour it over ice.
Fontaine Blanche is also a wonderfully versatile spirit that can be mixed into an array of sublime cocktails. We call this The Art of Imagination.
