Libertine 68 Amer develops a very savoury bitterness, thanks to a powerful grand wormwood,
Good for those who enjoy strong sensations.
It is the third absinthe of a serie, following Libertine 55 and Libertine 72. It won a prize in the 2004 Absinthiades in Pontarlier.
Produced according to a recipe from last century (1894), Libertine 68 Amer is an authentic absinthe.
It is entirely made with plants and seeds. Its colour is 100% natural.
In its composition are included mainly grand wormwood, green anise, star anise, liquorice, fennel, coriander, Melissa, hyssop and veronica. Libertine 68 Amer has the particularity of having been produced from a distilled blend (each plant macerates and is then distilled individually before blending).
An excellent absinthe with a wet character !
A strong taste and a complex aromatic palette characterise Angélique Verte Suisse. An exceptional novelty, full of harmony.
It is a true Swiss “Verte” from the Val-de-Travers made from 12 different plants, including angelica and grand wormwood. Its colour is obtained by the addition of a maceration of different aromatic plants, no artificial colouring is added.
Angélique Verte Suisse absinthe can also be qualified as the rebel and diabolic sister of the Clandestine. Indeed, it is stronger and more bitter, but is nevertheless as characteristic as the Swiss absinthes.
In our opinion, one of the best absinthes available today!!!
Another version is also available, in which double the maceration is used for the colouring process. (Angélique 72 Verte)
François Guy is more aniseed than average and is produced in the pure traditional way, according to an ancient house recipe. This absinthe will enchant both novices and confirmed absinthe drinkers.
According to a recipe more than a century old, its colour is obtained entirely naturally from plants. François Guy is produced from old methods of distillation guaranteeing the character of the traditional taste of absinthe. It is therefore no surprise that it won a prize three times in a row at the Absinthiades in Pontarlier.
A particular absinthe which merits being discovered!
Excellent sampling pack for new tastes! Considering the (sometimes) difficult process of getting European Absinthe to the United States, it is wonderful to sample new Absinthes before trying to get entire, often-expensive bottles through the vagaries of shipping.
We were suprised by what suited our tastes and what didn't; had I not ordered the samples prior to an entire bottle, I would have been quite disappointed. The packaging is elegant and quite sturdy - arriving in pristine condition despite overseas travel. The 50 cl tubes of each Absinthe are a perfect amount for 2 people to sample one variety; with sugar or without? More water or less? Finding the perfect vehicle for maximum enjoyment was wonderfully easy! This set is also perfect to introduce the uninitiated to the wonders of European Absinthe - allowing for many different tastes in one sitting to determine a favorite.
It also makes a very classy gift and impressed the most snobbish of cocktail enthusiasts in a most satisfying manner.
Shipping was extremely fast and packed perfectly. The quality of Absinthes received was excellent. If you are looking for the perfect "try before you buy" - this is the item for you. Thanks to Absinthes.com for a wonderful product and experience.

Great concept! You get samples and spoons within a few days, you try them all at home with some friends while listening to good music, you gather feedbacks from them, and then you can order bottles or more samples of the most enjoyed ones for your next parties.
Easy and cheap!

This is the perfect gift box for whoever wishes to taste or discover quality absinthes without having to buy full bottles. I got the 6 samples + 2 spoons set and I was truly impressed by the packaging quality and delivery time. Now I know what absinthes I like the most and can order full bottles without worrying at all!
