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.




  • Nose : Powerful grand wormwood, accompanied by an array of interesting aromas, really showing the high quality of plants used.
  • Palate : Strong and complex, but well-balanced. Notes of anise, fennel and grand wormwood that go very well with other herbaceous flavours.
  • Finish : Very good length. Savoury bitterness (more marked than most of the more “classical” Swiss absinthes.)
  • Anise:
  • Bitter:
  • Complexity:
  • Absinthes.com's note:

Artemisia Bugnon, Swiss

Claude-Alain Bugnon was the first clandestine distiller granted legal status by the Swiss government in the spring of 2005.

For years he had been responsible for a certain quantity of bootlegged absinthe that brought so much attention and status to this small region. His ‘Clandestine' has been and is still considered by many to be the best Swiss La Bleue available today. Claude Alain's custom designed distilling apparatus is located at his premises in Couvet, a former butcher shop!

The alambics each have a capacity of 145 litres, and produce 95 litres of finished absinthe. They are single-walled, rather than duplicating the bain-marie system more commonly used in France. Claude-Alain feels that the fiercer heat gives better extraction of the herbs.

Very pale (somewhat cold) green before water.
Beautiful opalescent louche (nor weak, nor plain opaque milky).
Great rich herbal aroma.
Strong flavor: stingy even with sugar. Lasting wormwood finish that climbs up your heads and stays in your temples. Refined and complex but not something I could drink daily.

Not for the faint of heart.

Excellent Absinthe, goes down like a dream, nice smooth texture. Has lots of flavors swimming around, wormwood coming through nicely as i like it. Pretty color, a lot different from most as with the flavors. Was better to me without sugar as i usually don't use it.
Highly recommend.

I have never had "real" absinthe before. After watching a documentary on Netflix I thought this would be a good one to try. Boy was I right! This is a wonderful spirit. Great flavor, and and fun ritual.

This was the first absinthe I bought from this site. I got it really quickly and delivered at my door. I got it sendt as a gift with no extra charges or anything. The service is just great on this site!
When it comes to the absinth I got no complains on that either. It tasted like expected, it was strong and good and I would like to buy it again.
I'll give it top score cause that's what it deserves. So does absinthes.com! :)

This absinthe will never lose its place in my top 5. Beautiful louche, wonderful complexity, and a strong bitterness offset by an unusual sweetness. This is one of the few I drink with little to no sugar as it stands alone perfectly.

Yesterday at night, I had a glass of Angelique Verte Suise...
The first word in my mind were... WOW... !!!

At palate, a Superior mix of wormwood, angelica and some other spices. Well rounded (as Suisse Bleues should be) and strongly bitter (not for amateurs and not like French Absinthes); not like Butterfly absinthe (refreshing) or nearly comparable to La Clandestine or La Capriceuse... Anyway, all use the same wormwood plants and you can perceive it on your palate and nose.

Louche was good, but I was expecting something more darker... but its natural green coloration is spectacular, before and after diluting it.

The end was so bitter but agreeable at the same time, something like having Espresso Cafe before even take breakfast. This is the first Verte Suise I have tried, and I'm willing to buy more in the future.

Thanks Absinthes.com for this great opportunity!

Being from Pontarlier and liking absinthe a lot, this is one of my favourite! I bought the bottle in the place where it was made and they had a really interesting liquor made of egg and absinthe as well.

As a first time Absinthe drinker, I wanted to try something highly regarded by Absinthes.com . . . . I cannot be a critic since i have zero knowledge of the drink but I will say the flavors are over whelming for me. I recommend this to a more seasoned Absinthe drinker.
