This is a clear, barrel aged absinthe from the Val-de-Travers. It is distilled in very small quantities, and limited to 500 bottles in total. The still is so small, it can only make about 17l per distillation. All the ingredients that can be sourced locally have been especially grown for the Bovet family by farmers in the Val-de-Travers, including grand wormwood, roman wormwood, hyssop, peppermint and lemon balm.

After distillation, the Nostalgie is placed in oak barrels for 2 months, which used to be a common procedure in 1900. The bottle reminds of champagne and has a classic matte-black finish with a transparent line allowing you to see how much of this delicious absinthe is left.

This absinthe is also available in 10cl.

Did you know?

The wormwood plants used in Nostalgie are selected and gathered from the fields personally by Mr Bovet.

Serving Suggestion

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

Der Nostalgie kommt in einer sektähnlichen Flasche mit vollständigen schwarz-mattem „Etikett“, welches aber links und rechts unterbrochen ist, sodass man den Füllstand sehen kann. Die Flasche ist dunkel, man muss sie schon gegen das Licht halten. Die Flasche eine handschriftliche Nummer erhalten.
Der Schweizer ist klar, hat aber einen ganz kleinen grünen Stich. Kann aber eigentlich nicht sein. Er riecht mild angenehm süß. Die zarten 54% lassen einen ebenso zarten puren Geschmack erwarten. Naja, nicht ganz. Pur schmeckt er schon sehr scharf, dominiert vom Fenchel und süßholzähnlichen Aromen, etwas Minze.
Er louched mit sehr schönen öligen Schlieren, sehr zügig zu einem dichten Nebel. So soll das sein, etwa zu schnell schon für meinen Geschmack. Liegt aber am geringen Alkoholgehalt. Das Öl flockt eben schneller aus.
Er riecht nach Zugabe von Wasser fast schon neutral, fruchtig. Geschmacklich jetzt sehr süß, ich hätte geringer verdünnen sollen. Ca. 1:8 sind zu viel Wasser. Er ist wirklich gar nicht bitter (toll!) und wird vom Fenchel geprägt – maßgeblich. Leichte Minz- und Lakritznoten im Abgang. Wenig spektakulär aber sehr sehr lecker. Zucker braucht man hier definitiv nicht.
Ich empfehle ihn für Anfänger die einen ehr süßen Einstieg suchen und für Kenner, die es sehr süß mögen. Er trift meinen Geschmack, ist aber etwas langweilig aber ich glaube mein bisher „fenchellastigster“ Absinthe.
3 Sterne wenn ich ihn neutral betrachte, 4 Sterne da er meinen Geschmack voll trifft nur etwas zu langweilig ist.

Beste Grüße Johannes B.

The La Valote Bovet was a Christmas present for my son - who fancies himself a knowledgable Absinthe aficionado. He advised me that he really enjoyed the Absinthe and will be ordering more in the future. Regarding the ordering and delivery process to the USA , it was excellent- good communications along the way and the package was delivered in great condition- many thanks

Geschmack und Geruch decken sich fast zu 100%: frisch, lakritzisch, leichte Süße durch den Fenchel und eine angenehme Wermut-Kräuter-Note. Der Loucheffekt ist gut. Insgesamt gut, aber nicht herausstechend.

Sterne: 3

Willy Bovet, founder of the Bovet family distillery, was a former watchmaker from the Val-de-Travers, where absinthe was invented. After absinthe was declared legal again in 2005, Mr Bovet and two other absinthe distillers founded the collective "La Valote" distillery. They split up later and separated into three individual, family-run distilleries.

The Bovet distillery is located in Môtiers, home to many distilleries before the absinthe prohibition in 1910. To this day, all Bovet absinthes are handmade according to historic recipes and distillation techniques. Starting with the cultivation of herbs, the drying and cutting, maceration and distillation, up until the final coloration step. The passion for absinthe and the skills obtained by the Bovet family that are being passed onto each new generation - this makes these absinthes what one calls a "classic Swiss Bleue": refreshing and strong on aniseed!

Robert Bobillier, a former clandestine absinthe distiller taught Willy Bovet the art of absinthe distilling and herb cultivation. He passed his knowledge onto his daughter Francoise, who runs the distillery since 2018.
