La Clandestine absinthe reveals a very complex aromatic palate and a subtly bitter finish. Without doubt, this is one of the best La Bleue absinthes around. Awarded the gold medal several times in contests, La Clandestine is distilled according to a recipe from 1935 including more than 10 plants. This is one of the first absinthes to be distilled in the Val-de-Travers, the cradle of absinthe distillation. Its traditional, artisanal production uses only natural ingredients. An intensely enjoyable discovery!

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.

Did you know?

- Claude-Alain Bugnon is the first Swiss distiller to have obtained a production licence in 2005. - The name Charlotte on the label of La Clandestine is that of the woman who first created the recipe, in 1935.

History

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.

Absinthe la plus équilibré à mon sens ! Très rafraichissante, C'est pour moi une absinthe de tout les jours, très agréable, ni trop forte ni trop anisé, se boit facilement. Parfaite pour faire découvrir l'absinthe à votre entourage. C'est une valeur sûr à ne pas si tromper ! Quelle merveille...

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.
