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.

This absinthe glass is a new edition of the most classic glasses of the XIXth century. It is entirely made with mouth blown glass. It is also well-known through the paintings of Charles Maire, a famous artist of the Belle Epoque.

Entirely handmade, it is a very elegant classic glass.
Absinthe grilles were popular during the belle epoque: the heyday of absinthe. Used in the same way as absinthe spoon, many of their designs are elegant and feminine.

The snowflake grille is an ideal accompaniment for a bottle of Blanche Neige, with its snowflake motif.

How to use an absinthe grille: Pour a measure of absinthe into your absinthe glass. Set the grille down on top of the glass, place a sugar cube on top. Drip iced water from an absinthe fountain or carafe on top of the sugar cube to dissolve it. The sugary water will descend down into the absinthe below, diluting it and turning it cloudy. Taste from time to time, aiming for around 3-6 parts water for one part absinthe. Stop adding water when it suits your taste!
Sugar isn't always the same - some sugar cubes you can buy at your local super market may have been pressed together too tightly, and won't easily dissolve when you drip water over them.

This is why these sugar cubes are ideal for the French ritual - especially made for the preparation of absinthe, they start to dissolve immediately when water is dripped over them.

This set includes 17 packs with 2 sugar cubes contained in each of them, this should enable you to have the sugar last for a whole bottle of absinthe.

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.
