Absinthe Eichelberger 83.2 tasting notes by Marc Thuillier

Absinthe Eichelberger 83.2 is one of the strongest clear absinthes on the market simply because it’s bottled without any preliminary dilution, that’s what we call a “brute d’alambic”.

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.

Freiburg Absinthe tasting notes by Marc Thuillier

Another organic absinthe you shall say, one more on the list… Yes but!

This absinthe is made by Andreas Dilger, a very renowned winemaker in the Freiburg region of South Germany. He’s most well-known for his organic wines derived from biodynamic viticulture.
