|Absinthe Pernod Fils "Garanti Fabriqué en 1913"
This is the classic "benchmark" Pernod Fils with the labels overprinted "Fabriqué en 1913"
(made in 1913). This is a very rare bottling - these bottles were the very last stock produced
by Pernod before the ban in 1914. They were sent to Holland for safekeeping and a small
quantity were released 25 years later for export in 1938 with this special overprinted label.
The balance of the stocks was unfortunately destroyed by bombing during the war. Photos
show the bottle still covered in the original cellar dust!
|Rare and Unique Vintage Spirits and Liqueurs
Absinthe, Cognac, Armagnac, Calvados, Whisky, Bourbon, Rye, Chartreuse, Rum...
and legendary wines including vintage Madeira, Tokaji Essencia and Chateau d'Yquem
|Our mission at Finest & Rarest, is quite simply to bring you the rarest, most fascinating spirits and some
of the most legendary wines - unique irreplaceable bottles in many cases dating back to the nineteenth or
even eighteenth century. We sell almost nothing less than 50 years old. Whether you're looking for an
ancient cognac from the "Comet" vintage of 1811, other pre-phylloxera cognacs from the 1830's, 40's or
50's, an original Absinthe Pernod Fils such as Toulouse Lautrec might have drunk at a Belle Epoque
Parisian café, a pre-war Glenfiddich, or a Hannisville rye from the days before Prohibition, you've come to
the right place.
While our primary focus remains 19th century spirits - we are the leading specialists in pre-phylloxera
cognac, 19th century rum, and pre-ban absinthe - we've recently broadened our range to include a
selection of extraordinary wines, including 18th and 19th century Madeira, Imperial-era Tokaji Essencia,
the greatest vintages of Chateau d'Yquem, magnificent Bordeaux and Burgundy, and other remarkable
Only a small percentage of what we sell is shown on the website. Our stock is small but ever changing and
is heavily slanted towards French spirits and liquors of the Belle Epoque or earlier. On the wine side, we
specialize in the unusual, the rare and the romantic, with a particular focus on early 20th and 19th century
Together with the bottles themselves, we periodically offer books, ephemera and collectibles,
documenting the history of these fascinating and magical wines, spirits and liqueurs.

|Two Cusenier Crème de Cassis circa 1900, two bottles of Absinthe Edouard Pernod circa 1910, an
Absinthe Pernod Fils and two bottles of Chartreuse Verte Tarragona from around 1915 - all part
of a cache found in the walled-up cellar of an old inn in Tasmania.
|A remarkable cache of rare Fine Old Jamaica Rum circa 1870-1890. Judging from the labels and
bottles, these rums were bottled around 1900-1910, and had likely 20 to 30 years in cask.
