The 2nd Absinthe Festival in Germany – April 2019

We proudly hosted the first German Absinthe Festival in April last year. The idea is to arrange a small event where absinthe makers from all over the world get the opportunity to showcase their products. Apart from sampling absinthe, visitors could sit in on a range of seminars covering topics around the history and distillation of absinthe. Last April, we hosted the second version of our small absinthe fair, and were proud to have won over even more exhibitors than the year before. 18 absinthe makers presented their delicious range this year.

The first German Absinthe Festival in Freiburg

first_german_absinthe_festivalFor years, we’ve been sharing stories from our trips to the Swiss Absinthe Festival in the Val-de-Travers, or the Absinthiades in Pontarlier, France with you. Being a part of this great absinthe community, it’s very important for us to get together at least once or twice a year to exchange news about absinthe, or just to catch up. The chance to talk to people who are just as passionate about absinthe is worth every journey, plus keeping in touch with absinthe distributors and distillers on a personal level is very important to us.

So we get together, we share some food, drink, and chat all night. Until after a day or two, we go back home to Germany, Sweden, Australia, New Zealand, Belgium, the Czech Republic or wherever else we’re from.

But why only Switzerland or France? We thought it’s time to host the first Absinthe Festival in Germany and bring distillers from all over the world together!

Fête de l’Absinthe 2016

There is almost nothing better for absinthe lovers than spending the whole weekend sharing different bottles of absinthe and talking with friends from all over the world about our favorite spirit.

If this sounds like it’s your cup of tea – or rather – absinthe, then you should definitely come to the Fête de l’Absinthe in Boveresse, Switzerland next year!

This little absinthe festival is held annually in the middle of June in the Val-de-Travers, the birthplace of absinthe.

There was no way our team was going to miss out on this year’s absinthe festival.

Fête de l’Absinthe 2015 in Boveresse

Dear Absinthe Lovers,

Once again, the weekend went by way too fast!

As in previous years, our team took part in the Fête de l’Absinthe. This Absinthe Festival is held annually in June in Boveresse, a small town in the idyllic Val-de-Travers.

We were very happy to meet up with old friends, and share our common passion with Absinthe lovers, distillers and retailers. Of course there were also some new absinthes to be discovered this year! You may soon be able to find them on our website.
