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 cattle, but for absinthe. 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.

Today, the distillery distills local farmer's excess fruits into low-yield eau-de-vies, complete with custom bottlings 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 Absinthe Brevans and Mansinthe, created for the rocker-absintheur, Marilyn Manson.

Other reviews... This is a beautifully balanced blanche absinthe. Based on the 19th century recipes of P. Duplais, it is distilled using a base of grape wine alcohol presenting a fruity undertone. It is fresh and crisp with a milky white louche releasing a herbal bouquet of wormwood, fennel, anise and mint.  - absintheonline.com
