Absinthe La Rebelle is an organic green absinthe produced by the Aymonier distillery in France. It is a very special absinthe because of the Marc du Jura wine alcohol base.

The Christmas season is one of the most beautiful times of year for me. The first snow falls, you meet your friends at the Christmas market and enjoy the first mulled wine together: where I live, in Freiburg, there is a wonderful traditional German Weihnachtsmarkt. If I’m lucky, when I get home I am greeted by the lovely smell of freshly made cookies, meaning my boyfriend has been baking for me.
The only stressful part is the search for the perfect Christmas presents for my loved ones.
To make your search a little bit easier, we put together a selection of Christmas gift ideas. We offer a wide range of gift sets with absinthe, high quality spirits, accessories and much more. If you’re looking for a special gift idea, then Absinthes.com is the right place for you.
We also have a delicious Absinthe Eggnog recipe that fits perfectly with the Christmas season.
At a strength of 45%, Francois Guy has one of the lowest alcohol contents among all absinthes. Thanks to its mild and well-balanced taste this is the perfect real absinthe for beginners and absinthe experts alike.
The Guy distillery in Pontarlier, France has been making absinthe since 1890. In addition to absinthe, the family-owned business also produces liqueurs, eaux-de-vie and aperitifs.
Let’s now talk about absinthe glasses. Our friend Marc had already published an article about “The truth about absinthe glasses” but on the “Musée Virtuel de l’Absinthe” he classifies them in three different main categories. This classification caught my attention and I’d like to briefly talk about it with you today.
Absinthe La Grenouillarde is an atypical Swiss Bleue distilled in Boveresse, Val-de-Travers. It distinguishes itself from the other Bleues by its higher alcohol content (65%) and its powerful aromas.
Its label can amuse or offend though… Why is there an indecent frog showing on this absinthe bottle??
Those of you who are into absinthe since a long time already know that label designs are mainly inspired from the historical traditions of absinthe and/or from the place where it’s produced. This is exactly the case of La Grenouillarde, but its history is even funnier.
In a couple of previous articles “From 50mm to 2150mm: A review of absinthe spoons” and “The origins of absinthe spoons“, we had already dived into the world of absinthe spoons, their origins, how they’re meant to be used, their classifications and a few key numbers, but we hadn’t really talked about the different kinds of spoons that existed back in the good old days.
An absinthe spoon is the most emblematic and unavoidable accessory of the true absinthe ritual from the Belle Époque.
In David Nathan-Maister’s book “The Absinthe Encyclopedia” and on the “Musée Virtuel de l’Absinthe”, absinthe spoons are classified in 6 different categories.
Absinthe Libertine 55 Originale has something rather special in it, just like her sisters Libertine 68 and 72. Let’s now discover what makes it interesting and how it tastes.
The first notable characteristic of the Libertine 55 is that it’s made from a blend of several distillates. In fact, during the production process, each herb coming in the final recipe is macerated into alcohol and then distilled on its own. Then all the distillates are mixed together according to a precise recipe and thus a very precise dosage. After a certain phase of maturation, the Libertine is ready to be bottled.
We welcome another delicious Swiss La Bleue to our range of high quality absinthes: L’Absinthe des Poètes made by Christophe Racine.
This clear absinthe is produced in Môtiers, in the Val-de-Travers, the birthplace of absinthe. It was awarded the prize for Best Swiss Absinthe at the “DistiSuisse 2015/2016” (scoring almost full marks!).
