Eichelberger 68 Limitée
was the winner of a contest organized by a German absinthe forum (Absinth-Guide). Wanting to improve the image of German absinthes, fifteen members of the forum developed quality distilled absinthes. The winning recipe was Michal Weinzierl’s, and just 60 bottles of this delicious distillate were made. It was so popular, that the eichelberger distillery decided to incorporate it into their range of products.
Michael Weinzierl, the creator of the recipe for the Eichelberger 68
absinthe, chose the Eichelberger distillery because it was close to his home town. It is a family distillery that is run by Lili and Rudolf Wild.
In 2005, they started the production of the first authentic German absinthe. Five quality absinthes followed the first one: Eichelberger 58 Blanche, Eichelberger 60 Verte, Eichelberger 70 Verte, Eichelberger 70 Classic and Eichelberger 80 Brute.

More bitter than Brut, oddly enough, and found it best at 3:1 mix with sugar cube. Has a distinct wormwood flavour. Moderate louche. Certainly unique, but not my favourite.

A real wonder, long lasting on the palate, aniseed flavours that punctuate the taste without drowning it. The first absinthe I bought on this website but definitely not the last one !
