The Artemisia Bugnon RUEVERTE Explore Set offers you three of Switzerland's finest, most famous absinthes: La Clandestine, Angélique Verte Suisse and the Absinthe Butterfly. A Feuille II absinthe spoon finishes the set, the ideal tool for adding sugar your drink in the traditional manner. The set is accompanied by a card with tasting notes for each absinthe and fascinating information on the distillery, which started off as a genuinely clandestine 'moonshine' absinthe operation during the Swiss absinthe prohibition. Claude Alain Bugnon later became the first legally-licenced absinthe distiller in the country following the end of the ban in 2005.
Artemisia-Bugnon

Did you know?

One can rightly question if it's possible for the modern Butterfly Absinthe to be the same as the Butterfly Absinthe of the 1900s. We think it’s probably unlikely. To produce a complete copy of an absinthe based only on a recipe and a few notes, even highly detailed ones, is actually impossible.

What we can say for certain is the recipe has lent a specific aromatic profile, and the making of Butterfly absinthe has benefited from Mr Bugnon’s expertise, unless there has been some incredible luck, it won't be the same as its ancestor. The distiller says it himself: “using the same recipe, if you change the alembic, you won’t get the same taste again”.

None of this detracts from the great quality of the Butterfly absinthe reproduction. 100% delicious.

Serving Suggestion

- At first, enjoy a glass of Butterfly absinthe with half a piece of sugar. For the next, add more or less according to taste.

- For one measure of Butterfly absinthe, add 2 to 5 volumes of ice-cold water.

Thoroughly enjoyed this master distiller's sampler! La Clandestine is so refreshing and easy to drink that the little bottle lasted only 2 glasses in quick succession! Thank you Stephanie for opening up the world of absinthe to a local boy from Hawaii. Yes, I get my deliveries in exactly 2 weeks time with no breakage or customs problems. I will continue to order from your excellent service and one day, will post a detailed critique but for now & from this novice, simple statements of good or bad, like or dislike, will suffice. In the end we all honor our favorite distillers by enjoying their creations. I will be ordering La Clandestine, Butterfly, & Angelique again. Enough said.

Awesomeness in three little bottles! Great way to introduce yourself to the wonderful world of absinthe.

4 May 2017

Sampler sets are the way to go! They're the perfect way to try several absinthes before investing in a full bottle. The packaging is elegant, though it would be perfect if the spoon was actually affixed as depicted instead of left loose. No matter, though--this is an excellent selection. My favorite is La Clandestine...but it's up to you (or the lucky recipient if it's a gift) to choose his/hers.

28 Nov 2016

Each vial contained about enough for two drinks which is enough to get a pretty good idea on if you like it or not. If you're looking to broaden your absinthe horizons, this is a great set.

Claude-Alain Bugnon was the first clandestine distiller granted legal status by the Swiss government in the spring of 2005. For years he had been responsible for a certain quantity of bootlegged absinthe that brought so much attention and status to this small region. His ‘Clandestine' has been and is still considered by many to be the best Swiss La Bleue available today. Claude Alain's custom designed distilling apparatus is located at his premises in Couvet, a former butcher shop! The alambics each have a capacity of 145 litres, and produce 95 litres of finished absinthe. They are single-walled, rather than duplicating the bain-marie system more commonly used in France. Claude-Alain feels that the fiercer heat gives better extraction of the herbs.
