Fête de l’Absinthe 2016

There is almost nothing better for absinthe lovers than spending the whole weekend sharing different bottles of absinthe and talking with friends from all over the world about our favorite spirit.

If this sounds like it’s your cup of tea – or rather – absinthe, then you should definitely come to the Fête de l’Absinthe in Boveresse, Switzerland next year!

This little absinthe festival is held annually in the middle of June in the Val-de-Travers, the birthplace of absinthe.

There was no way our team was going to miss out on this year’s absinthe festival.

Dear Absinthe Lovers,

Once again, the weekend went by way too fast!

As in previous years, our team took part in the Fête 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.

Fête de l’Absinthe in Boveresse 2013

Dear friends,

Just like the past few years, our team was on their way to the Val-de-Travers to visit the annual Fête de l’Absinthe in Boveresse, located near the Jura mountains. Plenty of people working in absinthe, absinthe lovers and enthusiasts travel to Switzerland each year to drink absinthe, and to spend the weekend with a group of friends or colleagues who share the same passion. Conversations evolve mainly around the green fairy, and one can get to know nearly all facets of the absinthe world, which makes this weekend a unique experience (at least for us!). (more…)
