The Family of La Clandestine
While La Clandestine is our most famous absinthe and the first to arrive in the USA, our family of absinthes sold around the world includes some other, very popular absinthes.
|For those who prefer it a bit stronger.
Based on the same recipe as La Clandestine, La Capricieuse has a higher alcohol content and reminds us of the old days before the ban. Once diluted with fresh water, the bitterness and the rich flavor of this authentic absinthe will persuade you of its premium quality.
72% abv 144 proof
|Multiple Prize Winner!
After conquering the Swiss market, La Clandestine wanted to participate in the French Absinthiades in Pontarlier. In order to conform to the strict French laws on fenchone, a new product was conceived only ten days before the actual event. A new product, a new label and & a new medal. Marianne was awarded the Golden Spoon of 2005, 2006, 2007 and again in 2008. Marianne has a sharper taste than La Clandestine Originale; less smooth and rather piquant and spicy, with a mild bitterness. A perfect absinthe with 55% abv content with a long-lasting flavor.
IN SHORT: Even if the recipe had to be changed for the French market, this absinthe is of the highest quality!
Angélique Verte Suisse
|Our New Baby .... and our new Prize Winner!
After two years of success with its original absinthes, we started production of our first "verte," or green absinthe. Angélique was created to meet the demands of some of customers for an absinthe with a stronger but reduced anise taste. The colour, which is completely natural, comes from the maceration of wormwood in aromatic plants. After filtration, the macerate is added to distilled absinthe and the resultant blend is stored in wooden barrels to give it a light woody, more rounded taste. Our friends in German-speaking Switzerland like to drink Angélique with just a little water, almost like a scnapps. Angélique is very interesting and very surprising.
It seems that Angélique is popular in France too: in October 2009, it won the Golden Spoon at the Pontarlier Absinthiades. A fifth consecutive Golden Spoon for Claude-Alain! More details here.
