La Capricieuse reveals a remarkable aromatic palette and a delicate final bitterness.
A “Bleue” full of complexity.

Made with more than 10 plants, this absinthe is issued from the same recipe as its sister la Clandestine.
With a higher level of alcohol, la Capricieuse has is less mellow but reveals more aromas.
It is one of the first absinthes distilled in the Val-de-Travers, cradle of this drink's distillation. Its traditional production uses only natural products.

For amateurs of strong emotions!

Nose : Powerful and complex. Proof of the richness of the plants used.

Palate : Remarkable freshness. Aniseed attack developing rapidly into notes of fennel and wormwood.

Finish : Excellent length on the palate and agreeable bitterness.
Claude-Alain Bugnon is the first Swiss distiller to have obtained a production licence in 2005.
Claude-Alain Bugnon distilled his first absinthe illegally in 2000.
The following year, having received a recipe from one of his friends, he decided to make a living from distilling.

In 2004, he applied for permission to produce absinthe, and at the end of that same year, he shipped his first order to Germany.

A few months later, on the 1st of March 2005, the Federal Council decided to legalize absinthe in Switzerland. The end of this 95 year old abolition pleased everyone.
- At first, savour Capricieuse without any sugar. Then according to your taste, add some eventually.

- For one measure of absinthe (3cl), add 2 to 5 measure of fresh water.

I purchased a small bottle of this to try and well i should have just bought a large bottle. I love his Angelique and when I tried this I have to say I liked it even more! He just knows how to get complex and full bodied flavors spot on. The aromas are just something else. My partner isn't a big fan of Absinthe but she even said it smelt nice. The lingering aftertaste made me dive strait back in it was gone from my glass before I knew it, it was that tasty. I have the butterfly to try next, will be interesting how that stands up. Cheers.

I cannot say enough good about Capricieusce. I even prefer it to its "little sister" La Clandestine which is excellent as well.
It has a great bitter, lingering bite I enjoy. The wormwood and other herbs are very pronounced. Its sophistication arrives slowly and leaves slowly. Highly recommended.

This is Clandestine Recette Charlotte (the blue bottle) concentrated. You can choose to pour less and make a strong drink with a slow drip in order to "tune" the experience. If you compare the price with the blue Clandestine, you will realise that you actually get a lot af absinthe for the 5 euros extra. Due to this Quality/price-ration I give the highest recommendation. We hope this will be imported to Denmark. The bitterness mentioned in the description is in no way overwhelming.
