When Gaudentia Persoz and her husband moved into their house in Couvet, Switzerland, they found an old, small still in the cellar, along with an absinthe recipe from 1898. This set her off on her journey to
becoming one of Switzerland's finest absinthe distillers, which is precisely why we approached her to collaborate on a new and unique clear absinthe in the Swiss Bleue style: Blanche Neige. Discover the 50ml tube of this absinthe, as well as of Gaudentia's La Valdetra Verte and La P'tite in this AbsinthExplore Set.

A Boheme absinthe spoon finishes the set, the ideal tool for adding sugar your drink. In the traditional manner, naturally. The set is accompanied by some absinthe sugar cubes.

Description of the products

Blanche Neige won the gold medal at the Absinthiades 2014.

The fairest absinthe of them all...

Our aim is always to share with you the finest of spirits. We've taken this dedication a step further by developing our own range of fine spirits. All of these spirits are absolute classics, some of them also taking tradition and giving it a slight twist!

We are proud to present the first of these very special beverages.

Absinthe Blanche Neige is in every sense of the word a classic: everything from the recipe, to the distiller, and the village where it is distilled.

When commissioning Blanche Neige, we only considered a select few of the finest absinthe distillers alive today to be up to the task. It was very soon clear that the cream of the crop was Gaudentia Persoz, one of the world's most talented absinthe distillers, and who has achieved great success with her own absinthes.

The recipe is based on an antique recipe from the private archive of a family steeped deeply in the tradition of absinthe: that of Gaudentia's husband, Jean-Michel Persoz. This makes a classic clear La Bleue absinthe.

What makes Blanche Neige that extra bit different is a precious and priceless ingredient, the root of a plant renowned for its aromatic qualities. Only found in the Alps, this herb, known as génépi, grows wild in the Alpine hills around the Haute-Alpes. Gaudentia was thrilled to experiment with génépi, finding the perfect amount to suit the historic recipe.

It took us 6 full trial distillations in total to finally be satisfied with the result, and tweak the recipe used. This distiller's proof edition of Blanche Neige is the first batch available for your tasting pleasure.

Colour: Clear, with a very subtle yellow-greenish hue, hinting at rich herbs.

Aroma: Suggests the scent of an Alpine meadow carried on the breeze. Fruity and with a feminine aspect.

Louche: Builds pleasingly steadily, turning Blanche Neige evenly opaque; white without becoming chalky. Take care to add water slowly.

Taste: Well balanced. A sweet touch on the tongue, accessibly subtle anise, and pleasant light touches of bitterness from grand wormwood and génépi.

Finish: Very smooth, silky on the palate. A finish of reasonable length, with some sweet hints remaining. Further glasses remain interesting without becoming overpowering. Will interest seasoned connoisseurs and beginners alike.

Blanche Neige will be available in full 50cl bottles from Spring 2014 onwards, though we wanted to give you the chance to taste this absinthe prior to its official launch. We do hope you enjoy this absinthe, and are excited to hear what you think about it.
La Valdetra Verte absinthe is powerfull, full of character and very well-balanced. It bears witness to the quality of Swiss absinthes.

It is distilled by an artisan in old clandestine stills. It is based on plants grown and carefully selected in the Val-de-Travers.
Its production is entirely natural, its coloration is based on 3 plants. This adds a touch of biterness to the final product.
La Valdetra Verte has a good length on the palate and the addition of water provokes a thick louche action, common for Swiss absinthes.

The most powerfull absinthe of the Glaudentia Persoz distillery !

La P'tite absinthe is mellow and beautifully well-balanced. A high quality “Bleue”.

It is produced from an original recipe, already used illegally before legalisation. This recipe has been updated since it was developed in 1898.
La P'tite is distilled by an artisan in old clandestine stills.
It is based on 12 plants grown and carefully selected in the Val-de-Travers.

An absinthe with character!
The Bohème absinthe spoon fits snugly onto every average sized absinthe glass, and will be an eye catcher during the classic French ritual, but also the fire ritual.

This spoon fits perfectly in one of our hardcover spoon boxes, available in black and green.

Gaudentia Persoz, Suisse

Gaudentia one of the first female distillers. She is young, and passionate about absinthe, and distills with an historic recipe from 1898, that she found, along with a small alambic, when she and her husband purchased their house in Couvet, Switzerland.

The distillery is a member of the “Les Artisans de l'Absinthe” association – it's most popular absinthe: La P'tite. Gaudentia's husband Jean-Michel is responsible for Marketing and Sales of thei products, and together these two people form an unbeatable team.

The sampler sets are a perfect way to familiarize yourself (or someone you love) with different types of absinthe without having to invest in an entire bottle. My favorite in this set is the Blanche Neige, though all are excellent!
