Green Velvet VAL. 275 – La Bleue is as clear as the pure spring water from which it is made. The hand-picked herbs from the region lend it the original smooth absinthe taste with a subtle hint of liquorice. This combination is ideal for the world of cocktails. Mild and discreet, Green Velvet VAL. 275 lends its unique flavour to any drink.
Degustation Notes by Gaudentia Persoz Colour: Crystal clear. Louche: Fast and foggy like a smooth bright veil. Aroma: Aniseed and wormwood are harmoniously integrated into the taste of liquorice with a hint of lemon balm. Taste: The pleasant taste of liquorice immersed in aniseed is followed by a hint of fresh lemon balm, unfolding into the essence of wormwood and star aniseed. Finish: The freshness of the lemon balm as the major component imparts a short and yet a piquant aftertaste that leaves a soft bitterness on the palate. Testimonials "This is simply one of the best absinthes, and an enrichment for the world of cocktails." - Armin Azadpour, Chef de Bar, Grande Zürich

Did you know?

Claude-Alain Bugnon distilled his first absinthe illegally in 2000. The following year, having received a recipe from one of his friends, he decided to make a living from distilling.

In 2004, he applied for permission to produce absinthe, and at the end of the same year, shipped his first order to Germany. A few months later, on the 1st of March 2005, the Federal Council decided to legalize absinthe in Switzerland. The end of the 95-year-old prohibition pleased everyone. For more details, visit the La Clandestine website.

Serving Suggestion

- At first, savour La Clandestine without any sugar. Then, according to your taste, try it slightly sugared.

- For one measure of absinthe (3cl), add 2 to 5 measures of fresh water.

Hallo,

nachdem auch der ABSINTHE GREEN VELVET VAL. 340 einen guten, wenn auch nicht überragenden Eindruck hinterlassen hat, bin ich auf den Val. 275 gespannt - vor allem, weil er mit Geschmack von Süßholz beschrieben wird.

Die Flasche ist sehr dunkelgrün gefärbt. Sieht fast schwarz aus mit grünlichen Schimmer. Der Verschluss aus Kunststoff und Holz. Auch wieder ein massives, elegantes Glas.

Der Absinthe ist wirklich sehr klar, keinerlei Farbe zu erkennen. Pur riecht er wenig nach Alkohol, frisch und ein wenig blumig.
Pur schmeckt er für seine eher schmalen 48% schon brennig, aber noch angenehm. Man kann ihn definitiv pur genießen, da schmeckt man deutlich Anis und auch Süßholz ist in nicht ungeringen Maße spürbar.

Der Louche ist sehr schnell und dicht nebelig. Es bilden sich sehr schöne Schleier beim langsamen eintropfen.

Mit Wasser verdünnt, hier ist 1:4 eigentlich schon ausreichend, bleibt der Geruch nahezu unverändert erhalten, etwas mehr Anis kommt durch.

Geschmacklich für mich jetzt ein wahrer Hochgenuss. Intensiver Anis und welch positive Überraschung, der Salmiak/Lakritz/Süßholzgeschmack bleibt erhalten und trift genau meinen Geschmack. Er ist mittel-süß, kein bisschen bitter und sehr sehr lecker und weich. Vor allem der Nachgeschmack bleibt erfrischend im Mund wie das frische Gefühl von Mundwasser - ohne Spaß! Ganz hervorragend und bei mir bisher noch nicht dagewesen. Die erwähnte Zitronenmelisse merkt man erst nach dem Abschlucken dezent, aber auffällig wahrnehmbar. Trägt zur sommerlichen Frische sicher seinen Teil bei-
Der Geschmack ist also überraschend, im Gegensatz zu oben genannten Bruder/Schwestern Absinthe aus dem Hause. Überraschend mild und frisch, wenig bitter, viel Anis und Süßholz. Er ist vor allem sehr Vielfältig, man kann hier so viel verschiedenes gut und klar rausschmecken.

Interessant übrigens auch, dass sich an meinem Glas leichte Ölschlieren bilden. Ich glaube der hohe Anteil ätherischer Öle macht das ganze so rund und weich.

Diesen Absinthe kann ich uneingeschränkt weiter empfehlen. Nicht der typische Absinthegeschmack, aber ohne zu weit davon entfernt zu sein, für Kenner und Einsteiger gleichermaßen einzigartig und Überraschend.
5 Sterne gehen ganz klar raus. Ich denke meine Top3 (Die niemals leer sein werden in meinem Hause) muss ich auf eine Top5 erweitern...

A lovely example of la bleue perfection. If you're not sure what a la bleue should taste like, this is it! Traditional and handcrafted.

This absinthe is very sweet as is. Due to the lower alcohol content, I'd recommend 1:3 ratio of absinthe to water with no or little sugar.

Both the beautiful looking bottle as well supporting one of the few female distillers makes this a gratifying purchase too!

Green Velvet & Dock 11

green_velvet

Green Velvet and the Dock11 series of absinthe have their origins in the birthplace of the green fairy. A misty Swiss valley called the Val-de-Travers, where just a handful of former bootleggers now openly distil absinthe. And these are the makers of Green Velvet and the Dock11 series.

Green Velvet val. 275 La Bleue and Green Velvet val. 340 Verte combine the highest quality Swiss absinthe with luxurious packaging. These bottles are at home on the shelf of a 5 star hotel bar.

The Dock11 series is a well-curated selection of the finest of the Val-de-Travers absinthe, both classic Swiss absinthe and new innovations. All of the absinthe bottles in the series feature original, beautiful artwork, demonstrating excellent taste. The series includes Wolfsmilch and Zeitgeist, which were created in collaboration with the late H.R. Giger, Swiss artist and designer of the petrifying creature featured in Ridley Scott's space horror film 'Alien'.
