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.

An intensely enjoyable discovery!

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.

A complex absinthe, not suggested for beginners. Anyway really good, the anise flavour is not too strong and quite well balanced with Artemisia, ending in an enjoyable taste. If you smell it pure it has a strange and complex bouquet, unexpected. In mouth it does not result much alcoholic and has a particular taste, all of its own. For what concerns the louching process I simply love it. Seeing a transparent liquid becoming completely milky white it's at the same time magical andnuvole sort of alchemic. The louche comes in a cloudy way developing from the bottom of the glassking. It forms quite quickly. I personally prefer to add one cube of sugar but the bitterness is really mild maybe also because of the low alcohol content, so it's still enjoyable without sugar.
A piece of story in the absinthe sector, love it. Absolutely suggested to someone who wants to go a little deeper into absinthe.
5 out of 5. In any case buying from absinthes.com is always a deal.

First absinthe I've tried, and I loved it. I love everything about it, from the bottle design to the after taste. Will most likely buy again.

Balanced, with a pleasant and not terribly aggressive wormwood bitterness. Drinks well unsweetened.

Top of the range! An outstanding blanche (in my opinion) competing* with Vit Opal... and maybe Blanche Neige.

My favorite blanche as of yet, even though I haven't tried many. Great taste (both with and without sugar) and beautiful louche.
