La Valdetra Verte is a powerful, herbal Verte which shows a pleasant balance at the same time. Very good Vertes from Switzerland are rare, because distillers especially from the Val-de-Travers tend to focus on distilling clear absinthes.

La Valdetra Verte shows a thick and quick forming, fascinating louche after water is added.

This absinthe is made by the only female Swiss distiller, who inherited her skills and the knowledge about absinthe distillation from generations of families before her. Mrs. Persoz puts all her effort and passion into the creation of absinthe, and you can taste this in each of her absinthes. This must be why Valdetra Verte was awarded the best Verte at the Absinthe Masters 2013 in London, UK. It was also awarded the gold medal at the spirits selection contest in China 2019.

First time drinking this absinthe, quite enjoyed it.

A complex and flavorful absinthe. Starts off lime green and then turns a light minty green when it produces it's milky louche. Green anise on the aroma with fennel undertones and an herbal note of wormwood. Flavor is interesting as I did notice some fresh basil and spearmint along with the anise and fennel. This is more of a boldly flavored absinthe verte. Finishes with a pleasent bite from the wormwood. I used half a sugar cube when I poured it. I would definitely recommend giving it a go. I certainly enjoyed it.

A very enjoyable glass! I blame only myself when I say I still prefer the Jade 1901. I will say that the Valdetra Verte has piqued my interest to sample more of Gaudentia Persoz Distillery's offerings!

My entire order is a gift. I have not tasted any of my order - yet... I look forward to tasting Absinthe in the future and liked the careful way the order was shipped. All items arrived in good shape.

Wow, this is a great absinthe!
I know a lot of work went into making this, and it shows.
A beautiful green colour before water is added, a thick opalescent louche that builds fast when dripping cold water. (In my case with a wonderful see-saw dripper, wich it self is sort of a fast dripper.)
Not a lot of aroma in the air, but still a very pleasant one.
The taste is exquisite and complex. There's a lot going on here. Anis and fennel is prominent, but in no way overpowering.
After a couple of sips other herbs is coming thru, delicate and almost floral. Semi-sweet and no bitterness at all.
I mixed it 2,5/1 with no sugar.
Excellent absinthe!

It´s okey absinthe, but the best I have ever tried is the new Swedish absinthe from the destillery Svensk Absint, called Grön Opal, that absinthe is so near the orginal absinthe from the late 18th century and I can recommend it. I hope you soon can sell it here:-) because it´s so hard to find.

What can I say? I'm developing my palate right now and this stuff is rocking me after a glass and a half:) The taste is reminiscent of Roquette 1797. This elixir is smooth, probably one of the smoothest I have tried (I've tried around 25).

Enjoyed it as a sample from the absinthexplore 50 ml tube.

So good and so gone:(

Tops all the absinthes I have tried so far, and that's about 9 different Swiss and French ones. Had a suspicion about how natural the color is as it comes in a clear bottle, but that is a minor issue for me. What counts for me is taste and mouth feel.
