Fête de l’Absinthe 2015 in Boveresse

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.

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 Môtiers that the “Maison de l’Absinthe”, an absinthe museum, opened its doors for the first time in July 2014.

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…)
