The 20th Absinthe Festival in Switzerland

 Almost everybody of Absinthes.com went on a trip to Switzerland last weekend. We went to the annual absinthe festival in the Val-de-Travers in in the Swiss Jura mountains where absinthe was invented in 1792. The festival is originally called “Fête de l’Absinthe” as the Val-de-Travers is located in the French speaking part of Switzerland. Every year, local absinthe distillers offer their absinthe brands on stalls in the street and explain how to drink absinthe or what absinthe is to curios visitors. Many absintheurs from all over the world use this opportunity to meet, mingle, and discuss our most beloved spirit.

A look back at the opening of the new absinthe shop in Freiburg ‘Alte Apotheke’

Last Saturday (17th December 2016) we officially opened our new absinthe shop in the heart of Freiburg, in the Black Forest, Germany. We have to admit to a certain amount of pride at how Die Alte Apotheke – The Old Pharmacy – has turned out after months of preparation.

Now we have the opportunity to introduce a lot more people to our favorite beverage, and to be able to enchant our visitors with the absinthe ritual in person. For us it’s important that everyone who comes through our doors can learn about absinthe – as much as they want to, that is – and gets the best advice possible from one of us.

With this goal in mind, we started the great task of how our shop would look, and deciding which absinthe to present (the answer – only what we would drink ourselves). Once that was decided, the the real work started: restoring and decorating the pharmacy and its beautiful original furniture within the space of only a couple of weeks.
