Emeraude is French for “emerald”, which resembles the striking green color of this absinthe by the Bovet distillery.

Emeraude comes in a black matte bottle with lovely and distinct details: the green cat eyes that seem to stare directly toward you. On the back label, we can read “Un Bijou” which translates into 'a jewel' – and this is exactly what this absinthe is!

Willy Bovet, the founder of the Bovet family distillery, first presented this absinthe at the Fête de l‘Absinthe 2017. The aroma is characterized by hints of mint and chocolate. These notes blend in wonderfully with the other herbs when water is added, and result in a very round and creamy taste. All in all, this is a mellow Verte with a perfect balance of herbs.

With its 77% abv., this absinthe is (together with the Septante7) the strongest of all absinthes distilled at the Bovet distillery. Emeraude also contains the highest thujone content out of all the six Bovet absinthes. The dark bottle protects this precious drink from losing its color.

La Valote Bovet, Switzerland

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.
