Absinthe La Valdetra Verte Tasting Notes by Miriam

Absinthe La Valdetra Verte is something fairly rare: There aren’t many green absinthes distilled in Switzerland.

Discover the Svensk Absint distillery

In a small town in Sweden, something special is going on. Using wild-foraged and home-grown herbs, made on an absolutely tiny scale, two new absinthes are being distilled: Grön Opal, and Vit Opal are these absinthes.

Today we take a first look at these brand new artisan spirits, and speak to the two makers about how they ended up setting out on the grand adventure of starting up a distillery, and some of the hurdles they faced along the way.

 

The history and development of the distillery

Back in 2009, two friends, Mikael Norell and Tomas Runnquist, decided to set up a distillery.

After overcoming many administrative barriers, they ran series of test distillations. In May 2014, the results of their hard work was ready: the recipe for Absinthe Grön Opal and the Absinthe Vit Opal was finalised. In 2015, Absinthes.com made these two absinthes available to people the world over.
