Duplais Verte Absinthe (700ml)

The founder of the Matter-Luginbühl distillery, Ernst Luginbühl-Bögli originally raised cows in Kallnach, a small German-speaking Swiss town, located between Neuchatel and Bern. Because of his location, he had many commercial contacts in the Val-de-Travers, only 50 kilometers away. This region was not only known for watches and absinthe, but famous for cattle. The Luginbühl-Bögli family story says that at the end of the 1920's, when searching for ideas for products, Ernst traded a prime Simmental cow for an old local absinthe recipe. It was said to have turned up recently in a search of old business papers (in the midst of the recent Swiss absinthe legalization publicity).

Today, the distillery distills local farmer's excess fruits into low-yield eau-de-vies, complete with custom bottling and personal labels. They are now also responsible for distilling the limited run Brut d'alambic Absinthe Blanche still-proof series and International Wine and Spirit Competition gold medal winner Absinthe Duplais, the new Absinthe Brevans, and Mansinthe, created for the rocker-absintheur, Marilyn Manson (also available on this site).

Absinthe Duplais has the distinction of being the first 'verte' to be released in Switzerland since the lifting of the ban in 2005. Its recipe is based directly on the absinthe 'Suisse' protocols from the important 19th century French distiller's manual: 'Traité des Liqueurs et de la Distillation des Alcools ' by P. Duplais - from where it takes its name. It is naturally coloured with aromatic plants after the distillation. This absinthe clearly exhibits Oliver Matter's growing talent and initiative (since the vast majority of the Swiss today are convinced that absinthe should be clear!)

Tasting note: Slightly cloudy, emerald green in appearance. Perfumed scents include a smokey menthol / camomile top note over heavier scents of very ripe banana and Turkish delight. An exotic amalgam. The palate offers exceptional concentration with a quintessence of fresh liquorice strap carried by a warm, clean, spicy spirit wave. Very good balance. Turns super dry with a very long liquorice strap aftertaste. Slightly bitter but very clean finale. 68% alc./vol.
