Description of the products

La Grenouillarde is a tribute to the birthplace of absinthe.

The wormwood used to make La Grenouillarde is grown and cultivated around Boveresse, from the garden of the Maison des Chats, The House of Cats, a picturesque building with sculptures of cats on ledges, to be precise.

For centuries the inhabitants of Boveresse were called Grenouillardes by people from other villages in the Val-de-Travers. There isn't a precise way to translate Grenouillarde, but roughly speaking, it's a sweet way of saying a female frog! So why the did others in the valley call them frogs? Quite simply - to get from their homes to the next village of Motiers, the people of Boveresse had to traverse a marsh or piece of swampland. To avoid getting their shoes wet and muddy (particularly important on their way to Church on Sunday in Motiers, one can imagine), they jumped over the puddles from tuft of grass to tuft of grass. Presumably this was the subject of much humour for the others in the Val-de-Travers!

The villagers from the home of absinthe no longer have to endure wet feet feet - a channel was made in 1950 to stop the regular flooding. It now looks very much like a natural river, and on one of its banks is a little fountain, with a spout shaped like a frog.

La Grenouillarde's distiller, Philippe Martin, lives to spread the word about the green fairy and follow his mission of making absinthes to be proud of.

Belle Epoque is distilled by Philippe Martin at the La Valote Distillery in the village of Môtiers in the Val-de-Travers, the birthplace of absinthe.

Philippe Martin lives to spread the word about the green fairy and produces the most authentic absinthes possible.

The label depicts a poster made at the time of the absinthe ban in Switzerland. A prohibitionist stands on top of the dead green fairy. In the background you can see Helvetica, the female embodiment of Switzerland, crying.


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!

La Valote Martin displays a mellow and elegant personality, full of roundness. Very charming.

It is distilled by a man concerned about perpetuating the Green Fairy's myth, and who wants to guarantee a traditionally produced absinthe.

Absinthe Marylin is made of 10 different plants, most of them originating from the Val-de-Travers.

An ideal companion for those who appreciate lightness !
Fée Verte du Val de Travers is distilled by Philippe Martin at the La Valote Distillery in the village of Môtiers in the Val-de-Travers, the birthplace of absinthe.

Philippe Martin lives to spread the word about the green fairy and produce the most authentic absinthes possible.


Philippe Martin, the distiller at La Valote Martin, used a large amount of grand wormwood for the production of Absinthe Martin. This results in an intense wormwood aroma that can be recognized during the tasting.

Along with the holy trinity of absinthe (wormwood, anise and fennel), Philippe also used lemon balm and hyssop. Most of the herbs have been cultivated in the distillery's own garden which is situated directly in front of the house in Boveresse.

We recommend to enjoy Absinthe Martin according to the traditional ritual and very slightly sugared.

This absinthe is also available in 10cl and 50cl.

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.
