Product Description

This is an authentic antique absinthe label from the Belle Époque, originally intended to be applied to an absinthe bottle. The label is in new condition, meaning it was never been used (applied to a bottle) and was made before 1915, when absinthe was banned in France.

The inks used in its printing process are bold and vibrant and feature a metallic ink as an accent. The use of a metallic ink creates a shinny, rich finish that shimmers in the light.

This is an original 72 percent (144 proof) alcohol label from the Fritz Duval distillery, formally Dubied Pere & Fils. Dubied Pere & Fils was the first distillery to commercially produce absinthe. In 1805 the son-in-law split off opening his own distillery in Pontarlier, France, called Pernod Fils. The Duval distillery was located in the town of Couvet, in the district of Neuchatel, Switzerland, the birthplace of commercially produced absinthe.

This label was intended to be used on a small bottle of absinthe called a "mignonnette." The mignonnette's were usually used as a marketing tool and contained between 2cl and 9cl of alcohol.

  • Circa pre 1915.
  • Original and unused.
  • Measures 3.75" x 2.875".
  • From Couvet, Switzerland.
