A set containing 3 x 20cl of the best absinthes from Artémisia Bugnon and an Absinthe spoon. Read the whole description
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.

Color is a very, very pale green. Smell is familiar and very traditional.
Louche- lots of billowing clouds - forms quickly.
When louched - thick and quite pale as expected. Almost white.
Flavor is solid - traditional and balanced. Wonderful!
4:1 is a nice ratio.
Pretty green - traditional.
Smells like a very traditional absinthe - similar to Ridge Verte.
Louche is milky-green.
Great aromas! Really nice!
Taste is delicate but quite balanced. Maybe use a lower ratio than 5:1.
Full, creamy mouthfeel.
Delicate but solid.
Absolutely transparent unlouched.
Aromas are lovely, balanced, and inviting.
Louche consists of pretty trails which turn to a billowing fogbank! Very pure white when completely louched.
Sweet, quality flavour and aroma.

A very pretty set.
Beautifully presented and 'could' make a wonderful gift, if one were willing to part with it... ;-)
