La Clandestine absinthe reveals a very complex aromatic palate and a subtly bitter finish.
Without doubt, this is one of the best La Bleue absinthes around.

Awarded the gold medal several times in contests, La Clandestine is distilled according to a recipe from 1935 including more than 10 plants.
This is one of the first absinthes to be distilled in the Val-de-Travers, the cradle of absinthe distillation. Its traditional, artisanal production uses only natural ingredients.

The wine alcohol base spirit makes it particularly suited to aging. Put a couple of bottles away in your cellar and they will only improve!

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.

One of the best 5 stars arrived really fast.
Just add cold water and it becomes cloudy.

It is absolutely lovely! I can defiantly appreciate the very suble sweetness of the grape from the wine alcohol beneath the absinthe.

I love La Clandestine absinthe. This one in particular (wine alcohol) I can't wait to open up years from now. I purchased three bottles, for now, to be stored and enjoyed when the time is right.

Thanks absinthes.com for a speedy delivery and secure packaging for these gems.

A very well rounded taste. Starts off with a subtle anise flavor and ends very smoothly hint of sweet fennel. Drinking this absinthe, you won't need to use a sugar cube.

Overall one of the best absinthes, the alcool de vin allows this absinthe to be easy on the pallete and well recieved by even the most picky drinkers.

When you drinks this, close your eyes and let it sit in your mouth for a few seconds, let your senses pick up the other subtle aromas and flavours present in this absinthe.
