Description of the Set :
Discover those three absinthes that are as brilliant and they're different from one another. Claude-Alain Bugnon really knows what he is doing! This set comes with a nice wooden box and a "Feuille" absinthe spoon.
Description of the products :
Angélique Verte Suisse
A full flavour and complex aromatic palate define Angélique Verte Suisse. Something a bit different.

Angélique truly is a Swiss “Verte”, coming as it does from the Val-de-Travers in Switerland, including twelve different plants, including angelica, or Angélique in French, and grand wormwood. Its colour is obtained by the natural infusion of aromatic plants, no artificial colouring is added.

Angélique Verte Suisse absinthe can be thought of as the rebellious, diabolic sister of the Clandestine. Indeed, it's stronger, more bitter, but still recognisable as a modern Swiss absinthe.

In our opinion, this is one of the best absinthes available today!

Another version, Angélique 72 Verte, is also available, in which double the amount of infusion is used for the colouring process, giving an even stronger bitterness.

Butterfly
Butterfly Absinthe is inspired by an American absinthe from the early 1900s, produced in Boston just before the US ban on absinthe in 1912.

Thanks to a partnership between a passionate American absintheur and the skilful Swiss distiller Claude-Alain Bugnon, the Butterfly brand has been brought back to life.

Butterfly Absinthe has a complex aroma, with notes of citrus (especially lemon and mandarin), spices, and mint. Alongside this rather exotic profile is the powerful and unmistakeable scent of the renowned wormwood from the Val-de-Travers, the birthplace of absinthe. This delicious American-Swiss absinthe is easy to love.

La Clandestine
La Clandestine absinthe reveals a very complex aromatic palate and a subtly bitter finish.
Without doubt, this is one of the best La Bleue absinthes around.


Awarded the gold medal several times in contests, La Clandestine is distilled according to a recipe from 1935 including more than 10 plants.

This is one of the first absinthes to be distilled in the Val-de-Travers, the cradle of absinthe distillation. Its traditional, artisanal production uses only natural ingredients.

An intensely enjoyable discovery!

ANGELIQUE:

Color is a very, very pale green. Smell is familiar and very traditional.

Louche- lots of billowing clouds - forms quickly.

When louched - thick and quite pale as expected. Almost white.

Flavor is solid - traditional and balanced. Wonderful!

4:1 is a nice ratio.


BUTTERFLY:

Pretty green - traditional.

Smells like a very traditional absinthe - similar to Ridge Verte.

Louche is milky-green.

Great aromas! Really nice!

Taste is delicate but quite balanced. Maybe use a lower ratio than 5:1.

Full, creamy mouthfeel.

Delicate but solid.


LCB:

Absolutely transparent unlouched.

Aromas are lovely, balanced, and inviting.

Louche consists of pretty trails which turn to a billowing fogbank! Very pure white when completely louched.

Sweet, quality flavour and aroma.

A very pretty set.
Beautifully presented and 'could' make a wonderful gift, if one were willing to part with it... ;-)
