La Valote Martin l'Originale reveals sweetness and very herbaceous flavours. A very elegant “Bleue”.

After La Valote Martin, Mr Martin offers a very interesting version of this absinthe with a higher level of alcohol.
It is distilled by a man concerned about perpetuating the Green Fairy's myth, and who wants to guarantee a traditionally produced absinthe.

A magnificent version with great complexity of aromas!


Tasting notes:

Colour: Clear and transparent.

Aroma: Fresh and sweet, a strong note of anise, and a slight piquancy from the high alcohol level.

Louche: Beginning slowly, L’Originale stays clear for a long time (again because of the higg strength). As soon as the louche begins to form, it almost immediately turns completely white. As white as cotton wool!

Taste: Very round and pleasant. Very complex for a ‘La Bleue’ absinthe. The first sip is fresh and sweet. Because the absinthe has been mixed with an appropriately large amount of water, the alcohol taste has almost gone, with just enourhg remaining to round off the sweetness.

Finish: L’Originale stays on the palate for a long time, the anise taste remaining on the tongue. In the finish comes the wormwood, subtly, rounding off this absinthe’s combination of botanicals wonderfully.

Overall Impression: A great absinthe, that has all the attributes of a typical Swiss La Bleue, and through its great roundness and balanced character manages to to be one of the best La Bleues! L’Originale tastes lightly sweet and fresh, and has at the same time a certain bite to it. An exquisite combination!

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.

Spectacular La Bleue - the whole line by Martin is excellent and this one is no exception. Full-bodied, well-rounded absinthe.
