The Distillerie les Fils d’Emile Pernot, founded in Pontarlier in 1890, produces spirits according to tradition. It is one of the last traditional absinthe distilleries still in activity.
We distill absinthe in stills which are over one hundred years old and which have made our establishment and our products famous the world over. Our guiding principles are quality and tradition.
During your visit you will journey back in time to discover the history of absinthe and of our distillery. We will then reveal how our stills work before ending with an introduction to tasting our absinthes, aniseed spirits and liqueurs.
