Description of the products

A full flavour and complex aromatic palate define Angélique Verte Suisse. Something a bit different.

Angélique truly is a Swiss "Verte", coming as it does from the Val-de-Travers in Switerland, including twelve different plants, including angelica, or Angélique in French, and grand wormwood. Its colour is obtained by the natural infusion of aromatic plants, no artificial colouring is added.

Angélique Verte Suisse absinthe can be thought of as the rebellious, diabolic sister of the Clandestine. Indeed, it's stronger, more bitter, but still recognisable as a modern Swiss absinthe.

Butterfly Absinthe is inspired by an American absinthe from the early 1900s, produced in Boston just before the US ban on absinthe in 1912.

Thanks to a partnership between a passionate American absintheur and the skilful Swiss distiller Claude-Alain Bugnon, the Butterfly brand has been brought back to life.

Butterfly Absinthe has a complex aroma, with notes of citrus (especially lemon and mandarin), spices, and mint. Alongside this rather exotic profile is the powerful and unmistakeable scent of the renowned wormwood from the Val-de-Travers, the birthplace of absinthe. This delicious American-Swiss absinthe is easy to love.

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!

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.

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.

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... ;-)
