This "Die Grüne Fee" absinthe is lovingly prepared from plants native to the Val-de-Travers. The distiller uses just traditional methods of distillation, and refers to recipes that date back into the Belle Epoque.

More details:

Prominent notes of lemon balm. Fresh and spicy. With varied flavours, yet still balanced.

Initial sweetness, followed by a warm and strong bitterness. Rich, full bodied and well-rounded. Very complex and yet not heavy. Long finish with slight bitterness.

In short
Strong flavours and complex aromas are typical for this Sade. A harmonious and powerful absinthe. A true “Verte” made from twelve different herbs.

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.

Delicious underlying sweetness, similar to the Jade 1901. Less bitter, however. A strong balanced anise flavor. Incredibly creaminess and mouthfeel. One of my new favorites!

This is Absinthe on another level. First you see the vibrant color, which is a saturated green unlike anything I have ever seen in a naturally colored Absinthe. It is beautiful! Then the powerful and sweet aromas hit soon after. It is the kind of deeply scented extract you might believe is some kind of rare and expensive perfume. I added ice cold distilled water at a ratio of 5:1. The louche was creamy and mesmerizing. It reflects an Absinthe rainbow of colors while still maintaining that sincerely amazing deep green color. This is when the flavors really begin to blossom. It fills the room with it's sweet and powerful aromas of Wormwood, Fennel, Anise, Mint and Lemon Balm. The flavors are redolent of an herbal wine of the gods. This is a spectacular Absinthe unlike anything I have tried before. It is perfectly balanced and seamless in it's aromas, flavor profile and mouthfeel. If this is a modern take on Absinthe, I like where things are headed with a masterpiece like this representing that segment of the market. At this point in time, this is my favorite Absinthe of all the bottles I've tasted in the last 10 years.

An unbelievable absinthe from our usual Swiss friends, this one is so meticulous and sophisticated that you wouldn't want to drink it every day. The aroma itself is something special and the flavor does in fact go up the classic and ordinary traditional path; up until a certain point. But at that point it indeed breaks off from its trajectory, changing its heading into uncharted territory. A true original product here, good luck to those attempting to catch this Blackbird with a conventional missile.

Everyone should try this absinthe. This is my favorite absinthe to date. The scent is powerful and indicates the anise flavor that awaits. This is the smoothest, best tasting absinthe I have had the pleasure of experiencing. The anise flavor is very distinct and the delivery is second to none. The louche is an opaque green and the development of the louche represents the complexity of this absinthe. It is worth every cent. The day after my first bottle arrived, I purchased three more. Thank you absinthes.com. For those of us in America your site is an absinthe haven.

This Absinthe is out of this world! Well it speaks to my tastes very loudly anyway. Colour clear and has a noticeable dark green tinge. Aroma is herbaceous and wormwood, fennel, anise are there but subtle and balanced, the louche is long and entrancing. Now the best part. The taste. It just makes me stunned! and I go wow, how does someone make something that good? Very good balance of flavours in there, mainly I taste the anise and wormwood up front. The wormwood comes on nice after sipping (as I like it) with the anise putting a little numbing in . There is lots of other characters in there (but I am not experienced enough to go into detail) they all play together very well close behind those two. The texture is just right, its light but still has a nice silky smoothness about it. Without a doubt my favourite absinthe after second pour. Cheers.
