La Capricieuse reveals a remarkable aromatic palette and a delicate final bitterness.
A “Bleue” full of complexity.

Made with more than 10 plants, this absinthe is issued from the same recipe as its sister la Clandestine.
With a higher level of alcohol, la Capricieuse has is less mellow but reveals more aromas.
It is one of the first absinthes distilled in the Val-de-Travers, cradle of this drink’s distillation. Its traditional production uses only natural products.

For amateurs of strong emotions!

Nose : Powerful and complex. Proof of the richness of the plants used.

Palate : Remarkable freshness. Aniseed attack developing rapidly into notes of fennel and wormwood.

Finish : Excellent length on the palate and agreeable bitterness.
Claude-Alain Bugnon is the first Swiss distiller to have obtained a production licence in 2005.
Claude-Alain Bugnon distilled his first absinthe illegally in 2000.
The following year, having received a recipe from one of his friends, he decided to make a living from distilling.

In 2004, he applied for permission to produce absinthe, and at the end of that same year, he shipped his first order to Germany.

A few months later, on the 1st of March 2005, the Federal Council decided to legalize absinthe in Switzerland. The end of this 95 year old abolition pleased everyone.
- At first, savour Capricieuse without any sugar. Then according to your taste, add some eventually.

- For one measure of absinthe (3cl), add 2 to 5 measure of fresh water.

I cannot say enough good about Capricieusce. I even prefer it to its "little sister" La Clandestine which is excellent as well.
It has a great bitter, lingering bite I enjoy. The wormwood and other herbs are very pronounced. Its sophistication arrives slowly and leaves slowly. Highly recommended.

This is Clandestine Recette Charlotte (the blue bottle) concentrated. You can choose to pour less and make a strong drink with a slow drip in order to "tune" the experience. If you compare the price with the blue Clandestine, you will realise that you actually get a lot af absinthe for the 5 euros extra. Due to this Quality/price-ration I give the highest recommendation. We hope this will be imported to Denmark. The bitterness mentioned in the description is in no way overwhelming.

New to the infamous drink, this was the second Blanche I have tried. First being the La Clandestine. Lets say this. La Capricieuse blows it to pieces. This is not to say that Clandestine is not a good Blanche. But this one is everything Clandestine is, but better. The higher alcohol content brings out the robust flavor notes found in this amazing blend. I was surprised to find out it is not a top seller, actually its not even close.

Blanches are not my everyday absinthe. I would like to explore many more Verte before traveling back to this emerald bottle. I find that Verte are just more interesting. But make no mistake about it ladies and gents, Capricieuse will knock your socks off and automatically go to a high ranking place on your list.
