An absinthe as fresh as it is complex. Probably the best German absinthe.

A traditional absinthe with exotic flavours!



Eichelberger, Germany

The Eichelberger Distillery is located in the southeast of Germany, in the forested Bavarian region called “Oberpfälzer Seenland”. The distillery is a family business, and developed from a hobby to a serious enterprise. Dr. Lili and Rudi Wild, married for a long time, followed their dream and opened a small distillery.

It is quite modern, and capable of distilling just 30 liters at a time, but the couple always pay attention to the quality of their results. The Wilds are passionate advocates of fine liqueurs and eau-de-vies, and were enthusiastic when approached with the idea of making a ‘specialist's' absinthe under their distillery's name, which has now become the first modern, yet traditionally distilled German absinthe: The Absinthe Eichelberger.

This was my first German absinthe, and it's not bad, but not great either.
I would say it's more yellowish than green, nothing wrong about that, just an observation I did.
The louche is creamy white with a beige tint to it, looks quite nice.
Tastewise it is a rather light absinthe, with not much anise and a hint of bitterness in the finnish.
It needs no sugar in my opinion.
Not oily at all, but leaves a soft numbness on the tongue for a couple of minutes.
It´s nothing near the great French and Swiss vertes, but not bad at all.
With it's mild taste this is a good absinthe for beginners. But a bit too light for me.

This the first "real" Absinthe that I have ever purchased. And by real, I mean no artificial colourants or flavourings. What can I say? My world is forever changed:

Appearance:
Colour: A gentle green, with a dash of amber. Clear no haze.

Louche:
Steady, smoky trials descending into the depths then, a sudden storm of washing thick green fog explodes into the glass.

Aroma:
For its strength, there really wasn't a big alcohol nose on this one. Notes of grand wormwood, a very fresh and well balanced fennel/aniseed presence... and.. a freshness that will leave you guessing till you taste it. This "freshness" is there very delicately in the distance. It adds complexity, wonderment... lust.

Flavour & Mouthfeel:
Smooth and creamy, it dances over your tongue like silk, leaving a pleasant dull numbness in its wake. A spectacular, well choreographed performance between the wormwood, aniseed and fennel. A gentle bitterness ever present. First the anise welcomes you in, the wormwood takes your coat, and the fennel giving you a refreshing and clean embrace. Then begins the complexity. A delicately peppery citrus cuts through the mix, and takes you out to fresh spring air. That would be the mellisa in perfect harmony with some kinda of citrus element. Interesting, refreshing... cleverly complex.

Finish:
The mellisa note rings out along side a firm wormwood chime. The gentle numbness remains. No overbearingly strong flavours, only the desire to feel loving embrace again.

I tasted my glass initially with 2 lumps of sugar to a 1/4 ratio. Immediately regretted the second sugar lump, as the complex citrus adds, in my opinion, a decent amount of sweetness.

Very impressed by this small distillery's output, would HIGHLY recommend, can't wait to try the rest of the Eichelberger family!

Serious, unique absinthe. Unlike any Swiss or French varieties I've tried.

More bitter than Brut, oddly enough, and found it best at 3:1 mix with sugar cube. Has a distinct wormwood flavour. Moderate louche. Certainly unique, but not my favourite.

A real wonder, long lasting on the palate, aniseed flavours that punctuate the taste without drowning it. The first absinthe I bought on this website but definitely not the last one !
