A strong taste and a complex aromatic palette characterise Angélique Verte Suisse. An exceptional novelty, full of harmony.

It is a true Swiss “Verte” from the Val-de-Travers made from 12 different plants, including angelica and grand wormwood. Its colour is obtained by the addition of a maceration of different aromatic plants, no artificial colouring is added.

Angélique Verte Suisse absinthe can also be qualified as the rebel and diabolic sister of the Clandestine. Indeed, it is stronger and more bitter, but is nevertheless as characteristic as the Swiss absinthes.

Artemisia Bugnon, Swiss

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.

A fantastic Swiss style Absinthe, strong and herbal. I noticed a strident, (some said sour) note of something a bit different, perhaps hyssop. It is a little more prominent in this than others. But as the bottle has had time to mature, I have found this flavor mellowed out just as some other reviewers experienced. I find I keep coming back to this bottle to enjoy the unique flavors. Highly recommend.

Still a solid day-to-day choice for those invested in the bitterness of wormwood and a good louche. A consistent bitter absinthe that'll keep you going.

I don 't give the maximum because I don' t try (drunk), but I think that is "the best"

This absinthe initially perplexed me a great deal. Upon first opening it tasted of an overpoweringly "bad" kind of bitter, bordering on sour. Not at all a pleasurable experience and upon reading someone else's review about receiving a "compromised bottle" I thought I must have had one too. So I contacted the good folk at Absinthes.com and explained the situation, provided the batch number and they checked back with the manufacturer who asserted that the batch was OK. After tasting it once again about two weeks later, without sugar, it was still an undeniably bitter absinthe (which I personally enjoy) but had entirely lost any trace of the inital sourness becoming a wonderfully complex and enjoyable beverage that could be diluted more than most and retain all of it's charms. So there are two lessons here. Firstly should you buy this absinthe, and I would encourage you to do so, do not neccersarily judge it upon the inital opening as you may just need to let it sit (or perhaps "breathe") for a time to reveal it's full glory to you. Secondly the staff at this site genuinely care about your opinions and make every attempt to provide genuinely great service ensuring your satisfaction. Thanks to Stefanie and Andrew!

Outstanding traditional absinthe. Not for beginners aromatic and powerful. Our of my rite Swiss absinthe from one of the greatest absiebthers of today well worth the extra change

Thanks to the man who makes this treasure, I trust that this is one of the finest examples of a Verte Suisse. I found it to be compelling and impossible to stop drinking. The first bottle I received was damaged and after communicating this to Stefanie, I had a replacement bottle arrive with the next order I placed. Clearly that first bottle was compromised because this bottle was so vibrant and fresh compared to the damaged one. This is a very complex flavored Absinthe and it does have some bitterness but I still found it to be sweet and delicious, with a dense mouthfeel which did not require any sugar to enjoy immensely. Perhaps not for beginners, but if you are a connoisseur you will find this to be one of the top Absinthes available in the traditional segment of the market.

A verte from Claude....yes please. As smooth as Clandestine.

A beautiful absinthe. A strong yet delicate flavor. Just as lovely as la clandestine. And just as special. Only thing that would make this better would be a wine base as I'm under the thought that it's grain base as their other products. Looking forward to the butterfly and the wine base clandestine. Cheers and a thanks to absinthes.com

This is a good absinthe but I like his Clandestine better, and the Butterfly is one of my top 2 favorites that I always have on hand.

Very pale (somewhat cold) green before water.
Beautiful opalescent louche (nor weak, nor plain opaque milky).
Great rich herbal aroma.
Strong flavor: stingy even with sugar. Lasting wormwood finish that climbs up your heads and stays in your temples. Refined and complex but not something I could drink daily.

Not for the faint of heart.
