HR Giger Wolfsmilch was named by Giger, and inspired by a book called „HR GIGER and the Zeitgeist of the Twentieth Century“ written by Stanislav Grof. The book is the first one of its kind to analyze Giger's visionary world from a psychological perspective.

Giger became extremely popular 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. This absinthe was the last project he worked on, and there is only a limited number of bottles available.

Enjoy HR Giger Wolfsmilch with some ice water.

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.

This is a very tasty absinthe. The louche is wonderful and upon a slow drip you can see a beautiful emerald green layer form at the top of your glass as the oils rise releasing great flavor. I had read several positive reviews and had to try this absinthe for myself. A truly classic taste, enjoyable to the novice and connoisseur in my opinion. But why only four stars? While it's very good, I couldn't find that one unique characteristic to put it over the top. The overall experience is great, but I couldn't find anything (at least to me) that really set it aside from other wonderful absinthes either. But who know? Maybe you'll feel different. I would recommend you get some before the quantities run out.

Forget about it. This is a Breitling or a Rolex as far as quality. A classy absinthe that is highly desirable because of its mellow, sophisticated palate. Pricey drop here. But I can guarantee zero disappointment to be had. If you hunt for top tier green drop, this elixer should be at the top of your list.

Wow! Probably the one word to some up Wolfsmilch. Out of the bottle it is nearly clear, i could barely see any green in it all, i asked myself whats going on here?? I louched it with slow drip which produced prolonged gentle swirls working its way into one of the most enticing colors I've ever laid eyes on! Lovely pale green. Wormwood is king here, with other flavors hard to grasp as they in the back and as noted in description it is a mellow verte, over watering would ruin it pretty quick. I myself usually prefer more complex drops but this is made so finely and the fact I like wormwood to come through first which lingers with a hint of peppery finish. Alcohol heat is very well hidden considering how gentle the flavors are which impressed me. I would give it 4 and half stars if possible but since there's not bad to really say about, I give it five. Just remember if you want powerful flavors I wouldn't go here, but powerful effect. YES!
