Absinthe Blanche Neige Review by Marc Thuillier

Marc Thuillier

Vintage spirits treasure-hunter, connoisseur and altogether good chap: Marc Thuillier is one of the world’s foremost authorities on absinthe. When old bottles are uncovered from a bricked-up cellar or dusty attic, Marc’s your first port of call to determine their vintage, quality, and value.

Merci beaucoup, Monsieur Thuillier!
