Pre-Ban vintage absinthe is unanimously acknowledged by absinthe experts as the gold standard for absinthe, thanks to its amazing room-filling aroma, creamy mouth-feel, astonishing complexity and the smoothness acquired with more than 100 years of aging.
Unfortunately, Pre-Ban absinthe bottles are extremely rare (their prices can reach several thousands of dollars) and for this reason they’re a treat that few people can afford.
Other skilled absinthe distillers have already tried to reproduce how different brands of Pre-Ban absinthe tasted back in the 19th century, when they were a couple of years old and savored by absintheurs all around the world. Stefano Rossoni decided to push the envelope, trying to reproduce how Pre-Ban absinthe tastes NOW, after more than 100 years of aging turned it into the “holy grail” everybody talks about.
L’Ancienne is the result of years of research and experimentation with ancient techniques and herbs cultivars. It is personally distilled by Stefano Rossoni in micro-batches, using the finest custom-distilled wine alcohol, Pontarlier wormwood, selected florence fennel, green anise, moldavian melissa, hyssop and petite absinthe.
