Absinthe HR Giger 20th Anniversary Museum Limited - 50cl
Absinthe HR Giger 20th Anniversary Museum Edition celebrates the 20th anniversary of the HR Giger Museum in Gruyères, Switzerland.
This absinthe has a slightly sweet and long lasting taste.
Hans Rudolf Giger's art became world renowned after he designed the creature in Ridley Scott's sci-fi horror classic Alien – it even earned him an Oscar in 1980. But long before that, he came up with absurd and fantastic art work, sculptures. Often, his work evolved around the spooky and at times futuristic representation of human bodies and machines in a cold, interconnected relationship, which was described as 'biomechanical'.
Giger died on May 12, 2014 at the age of 74 – his work, inspiration and unique taste will never be forgotten.

Green Velvet & Dock 11
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'.
