Finest & Rarest Wines - Ancient Spirits - Absinthe
Oxygénée is a group of companies operating in the field of vintage wine, rare and ancient spirits, and absinthe. We have offices in the UK, France and in Germany and are proud co-owners of the historic Distillerie Les Fils d'Emile Pernot in Pontarlier, one of only two French absinthe distilleries surviving from the pre-ban era. We are vignerons in Chateau Chalon and Arlay in the beautiful Jura. We are proprietors of the Virtual Absinthe Museum, the centre for historical research on absinthe.
Our Finest & Rarest division is the premier specialist and market leader in selling authentic bottles of original 19th century spirits, including pre-phylloxera cognac, ancient whiskies, pre-1903 Chartreuse and early Rhum Agricole. In 2010 we handled the sale of the oldest and most valuable cognac bottle in existence, the unique 270 year-old Clos de Griffier 1738. Finest & Rarest also handles some of the rarest and most romantic of all wines, including Madeira, Tokaji Essencia and Chateau Chalon from the nineteenth and even eighteenth centuries.
