La Clandestine 1935 - barrel-aged is made after the La Clandestine recipe, and aged in an oak barrel for 6 years. Claude-Alain was always interested in finding out what aging an absinthe for such a long time would do to the drink. The distiller of the Artémisia Bugnon Distillery is thrilled about the result.

What does it taste like?

Absinthe La Clandestine 1935 combines the flavours of a classic absinthe with all the woody and vanilla-like notes you get from a classic cognac. Experts and absintheurs who were given the opportunity to taste this special absinthe, are overwhelmed by it. Other absinthe lovers are intrigued by it, and bar and restaurant owners are determined to sell this drink and the absinthe speciality in their establishment.

How should you drink La Clandestine 1935?

Claude-Alain Bugnon and other absinthe experts have enjoyed Barrique as a classic after dinner digestif before: neat, in the way most people would drink an aged Cognac or an 18 year old Single Malt. Further suggestions are to try this absinthe with small amounts of iced water or ice. This method will probably release more aromas and flavours, and of course the addition of water will make this absinthe louche. However, connoisseurs expecting the clarity of a cognac with water and ice will probably be surprised by the cloudy outcome. Alan Moss, representative of La Clandestine Absinthe suggests to start using only very small amounts of water when experimenting with this method. To summarize, there are two ways to enjoy this absinthe:

-Mixed with a little iced water

Apparently, Claude-Alain himself prefers to enjoy the La Clandestine 1935 neat, with a cigar.

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.
