This absinthe is called Freiburger absinthe, and not just because it is made in Freiburg (in the Black Forest), but because it genuinely reflects the terroir of Freiburg, due to its unique main ingredient, which is made from organic grapes...

This absinthe was distilled by Andreas Dilger at his wine cellar, which is rather uniquely located, in a former tram depot.

To understand this absinthe, it first helps to know a bit about Dilger and his wine:

Andreas Dilger is known in Freiburg for his organic wine, that he has been producing professionally since 2001. Freiburg is in Baden, a region famous in Germany for its wine. What sets Andreas Dilger's wine apart is the varieties of grapes he uses, ones which have been bred to be naturally pest resistant. This means that Dilger is able to grow his vines in harmony with nature, pruned and harvested by hand, and grown without the excessive spraying of pesticides that is associated with conventional wine growing. All of Dilger's wines are certified organic, and made with grapes from his vineyard in the outskirts of Freiburg.

With access to these high quality grapes, Dilger is able to make impressive wine, full of character. The process of pressing grapes has another product, less known than wine, which is the grape pomace. This is all of the parts of the grape left after pressing. This can be fermented and then distilled into high quality alcohol, full of grapey, fruity aromas. In Italy, this is a celebrated and famous spirit, called Grappa. In Germany it is called Tresterbrand.

This organic pomace brandy forms the basis of this absinthe, and is really the star of the show, giving it prominent fruity, grape aromas. This is accompanied by sweet anise and notes of lemon.

This is a unique opportunity to try an absinthe made with this base spirit.
