Absinthiades 2015 – Once again, the weekend went by way too fast!

Dear absinthe lovers,

We’re back from an eventful weekend.

For the 15th year, the Absinthiades were held in Pontarlier last weekend. And this year was quite special: it was the 100th anniversary of the absinthe ban in France. From Friday evening to Sunday afternoon, absinthe distillers, sellers, historians, authors, collectors and absinthe freaks (we include ourselves among them) were reunited in Pontarlier.

It was the best Absinthiades for a long time. A long and exciting weekend, I prefer to talk about each day separately.

Friday, 10/02/2015

We stopped working earlier than usual and around 1:00 pm we headed towards Pontarlier.

Rather than stay in our usual hotel, we thought it was high time for change. And we found the perfect place, absolutely appropriate for an absinthe-tinged weekend: A turn of the century apartment complete with beautiful wooden and glass panelling inside. A belle-epoque treat! After we arrived, we dropped our bags and rushed over to where the action happens: the Théùtre Bernard Blier. And inside awaiting us, the facade of the Grand Café Georges: re-erected to resurrect the green hour, for just one weekend each year.

Once again, the weekend went by way too fast!

As in previous years, our team took part in the FĂȘte de l’Absinthe. This Absinthe Festival is held annually in June in Boveresse, a small town in the idyllic Val-de-Travers.

We were very happy to meet up with old friends, and share our common passion with Absinthe lovers, distillers and retailers. Of course there were also some new absinthes to be discovered this year! You may soon be able to find them on our website.

Blanche Neige – award-winning Swiss absinthe

After we spent quite a long time on planning and testing, we’re pleased to tell you that our very own absinthe, the Blanche Neige, is now available in a full-sized 500ml bottle.

Absinthe Blanche Neige 500ml

Blanche Neige is the name for our true, Swiss La Bleue from the Val-de-Travers, the birthplace of absinthe. This absinthe is distilled by Gaudentia Persoz, one of the world’s most talented absinthe distillers, who has achieved great success with her own absinthes.

What makes Blanche Neige that extra bit different is a precious and priceless ingredient, Génépi. This  aromatic herb, from the Wormwood family, grows wild in the Alps. What sets it aside from other blanche absinthe is the much larger variety of herbs.

By on September 17 introduces the artisan spirits of the Zufanek distillery

Today we’ll introduce a Czech distillery to you, specialized in the production of fine, artisanal spirits. The Zufanek distillery is a family business, best known outside the Czech Republic for their absinthe. The best kept secret however is their exceptional liqueurs and eau-de-vies. The family started their absinthe production in 2008, after a lot of trial distillations, research and input from experts. From then on, all the absinthe made by this distillery has been a wonderful success!

The history of the Zufanek Distillery

Josef and Maria Zufanek founded the distillery in 2000, together with their sons (Josef, Martin and Jan). The company’s mission is: to specialize in the production of all-natural spirits and liqueurs, especially Slivovitz, that is, plum brandy.


The Zufanek distillery is located in the village Borsice u Blatnice in Czech Republic. All fruits used for the production of spirits and liqueurs are cultivated in the family’s own fruit orchards. These orchards are both close to the distillery, and more importantly, in one of the best locations in the country for growing plums. The climate, as well as the local soil, rich in minerals, are very favorable for growing fruits in this area. All the fruit is certified organic quality.

Maison de l’Absinthe: the new absinthe museum in Switzerland

The history of absinthe is full of sudden new developments, from its rapidly rising popularity and becoming France’s most popular drink, to its prohibition at the beginning of the twentieth century and then its unexpected comeback a few years ago. This history is deeply interwoven with that of the Val-de-Travers, Switzerland. It is precisely there in a small city named MĂŽtiers that the “Maison de l’Absinthe”, an absinthe museum, opened its doors for the first time in July 2014.
