La Valote Martin l'Originale reveals sweetness and very herbaceous flavours. A very elegant “Bleue”.

After La Valote Martin, Mr Martin offers a very interesting version of this absinthe with a higher level of alcohol.
It is distilled by a man concerned about perpetuating the Green Fairy's myth, and who wants to guarantee a traditionally produced absinthe.

A magnificent version with great complexity of aromas!


Tasting notes:

Colour: Clear and transparent.

Aroma: Fresh and sweet, a strong note of anise, and a slight piquancy from the high alcohol level.

Louche: Beginning slowly, L’Originale stays clear for a long time (again because of the higg strength). As soon as the louche begins to form, it almost immediately turns completely white. As white as cotton wool!

Taste: Very round and pleasant. Very complex for a ‘La Bleue’ absinthe. The first sip is fresh and sweet. Because the absinthe has been mixed with an appropriately large amount of water, the alcohol taste has almost gone, with just enourhg remaining to round off the sweetness.

Finish: L’Originale stays on the palate for a long time, the anise taste remaining on the tongue. In the finish comes the wormwood, subtly, rounding off this absinthe’s combination of botanicals wonderfully.

Overall Impression: A great absinthe, that has all the attributes of a typical Swiss La Bleue, and through its great roundness and balanced character manages to to be one of the best La Bleues! L’Originale tastes lightly sweet and fresh, and has at the same time a certain bite to it. An exquisite combination!

Did you know?

La Valote distillery produces three different absinthes. Three stills measuring between 25 and 90 litres are used.

Messrs Bovet, Fornoni and Martin share them to produce three different absinthes, each bearing the name of its respective distiller.

Serving Suggestion

- At first, savour La Valote Martin l’Originale without any sugar. Then according to your taste, add some eventually.

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

15 Dec 2019

Absinthe merveilleusement équilibrée, très bonne, je recommande !
Absinthe.com est un site très sérieux, les produits sont de grande qualité, et l'expédition est rapide et bien emballée.

15 Nov 2019

Première fois que je teste une blanche et franchement je suis surpris. Très agréable a boire, avec un léger goût de caramel en bouche tout derrière.

2 Dec 2018

This absinthe is absolutely fantastic! Rich and sweet with a subtle bitterness. It packs a lot of flavour and still manages to be smooth as silk. This is my first blanche from La Valote Martin and I will definately check out the rest of their absinthes too.

18 Nov 2018

Tongue numbingly lovely. Light on the palette but by no means insubstantial in its flavours. Dangerously drinkable

26 Dec 2017

Ein schönes Geschenk für einen Absynthe Liebhaber! Und die Verpackung war wirklich eine schöne Überraschung, eine wirklich schöne Idee mit den Kleinigkeiten . Danke !

28 Nov 2017

Wonderful La Bleue!! So smooth with a sweet anise, fruity fennel and a very slight bitterness. The louche is beautiful to watch, mouth feel is perfect! This absinthe made for a very pleasant Birthday.

23 Sep 2017

Great taste. Very complex and very potent. Not great for first timers, but definitely an all-around good choice

12 Jun 2017

Je ne mets rien au dessus.
Même l'étiquette de l'originale
est très belle.D' où vient elle?

5 Apr 2017

Spectacular La Bleue - the whole line by Martin is excellent and this one is no exception. Full-bodied, well-rounded absinthe.

22 Jun 2014

Am Anfang steigt einem ein warmer, vollmunder Geruch in die Nase. Kräuter, etwas Wermut und ganz wenig Anis - nichts ist aufdringlich. Die Trübung ist top. Milchig, schnell und weiß mit einem leichten Blauschimmer. Die Wasserzugabe verstärkt die Kräuternote im Geruch. Der Geschmack ist mild, frisch und süß. Eine einfaches Wechselspiel aus Wermut, Kräutern und Fenchel im Abgang. Es sticht nichts hervor, was man als typische Charaktereigenschaft für diesen Absinthe benennen könnte. Er ist nicht extravagant, dafür sehr solide und sehr lecker.

Sterne: 3,5

Exactement ce que nous recherchions pour faire goûter à des novices et avouons-le pour revenir nous aussi vers l'absinthe. Très agréable en bouche (fenouil-anis) juste ce qu'il faut d'amertume et un liquide qui vous coule facilement dans le gosier qu'on re regarde la bouteille pour être sûr des 72 degrés.
Nos amis anglais, nous en reparlent......!

5 Sep 2013

Pour les amateurs de sensations fortes et a la fois douce, je vous la recommande volontier.
Une blanche de la Valote Martin qui mérite vraiment d'etre goutée et apréciée car son gout est fort mais extremement délicieuse grace a sa rondeur,sa douceur en amértume et le gout du fenouil et de l'anis qui ressort directement après sa légere amertume en bouche et c'est ce qui fait que vous avez envie d'en apprécier un autre verre car son gout delicieux vous envoute d'une facon remarquable malgré ses 72°!

The distillery of Philippe Martin is situated in Boveresse, in the Val-de-Travers, the birthplace of absinthe and today home to some of the finest absinthe distilleries.

Philippe Martin distills his absinthes in an old house known to locals as La Maison des Chats, a centuries-old building decorated with stone sculptures of cats. Right opposite is the distillery's own garden, where most of the herbs used for Philippe's absinthe is cultivated.

Philippe took over the distillery from his father Francis Martin in 2014, who distilled for 33 years during the time of the absinthe ban in Switzerland. When absinthe was re-legalized in 2005, Francis received a licence to produce absinthe legally.
