Distilled at the Val-de-Travers according to traditional distilling methods. The herbs used to distill this Verte are all obtained from the Val-de-Travers region, which contribute to Absinthe Bizarre's characteristic and unique taste. A Verte from the Val-de-Travers is always something special.
This Absinthe is based on a recipe from 1889. It has a dark green color, the taste is flowerish with significant notes of green anise and hints of vanilla. It is distilled with wine alcohol, what gives this Absinthe a brandy like smell. Overall a pretty good French Absinthe.
The recipe for Absinthe Rhum Decollage was inspired by an academic study performed by Alice Peeters in 1976: “Le petit paysannat Martiniquais et son environnement végétal”, which described how farmers in Martinique used to soak various plants including grand wormwood in rum, rather like the tradition of 'Rhum Arrangé' in Guadeloupe, Reunion and Madagascar: rum infused with spices and fruit.
Wormwood-infused Rum is obtained through the maceration of grand wormwood and other plants in a high quality rum from Martinique, sugarcane amd wormwood distillates. The result is a slightly sweet rum with wonderful herbaceous notes. It is important to note that unlike absinthe, this rum does not contain anise. Additionally, the wormwood flavour is stronger than in traditional absinthe.
To celebrate its 80th anniversary, the Abtshof distillery produced this Limited Edition Absinthe with an alcohol level of 80%. Some people think that 80% spirits are only for the hardcore drinkers, but when mixed with 3 parts water, this brand can convince you otherwise with a nice herbal taste. Collectors pharmacy bottle.
