Absinthe HR Giger 20th Anniversary Museum Edition celebrates the 20th anniversary of the HR Giger Museum in Gruyères, Switzerland.

This absinthe has a slightly sweet and long lasting taste.

Hans Rudolf Giger's art became world renowned after he designed the creature in Ridley Scott's sci-fi horror classic Alien – it even earned him an Oscar in 1980. But long before that, he came up with absurd and fantastic art work, sculptures. Often, his work evolved around the spooky and at times futuristic representation of human bodies and machines in a cold, interconnected relationship, which was described as 'biomechanical'.

Giger died on May 12, 2014 at the age of 74 – his work, inspiration and unique taste will never be forgotten.

Limited edition: only 999 bottles have been made.

La Valote Martin, Switzerland

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.

Commemorative HR Giger reawakened my use of his art work in teaching AP Biology over the years... from The Alien inspiration to Birth Machine and all website/museum highlights we appreciated over the years... each taste revives so many associated thoughts!!!
