A snap shot to the Geography of Absinthe
Absinthe was first distilled in the small town of Couvet in the beautiful Val-de-Travers region of Switzerland more than a century ago and, shortly after, through the adjoining hills in the historic town of Pontarlier, France. Production took off throughout France, where at its height was enjoyed by hundreds of thousands before disappearing in the early 20th century The late 1990’s saw the beginning of the modern absinthe revival with production initially starting in the heart of Bohemia in the Czech Republic.
