One of few comercial absinthes from Portugal. For long many people stated that Portugal was one of the very few countries that still made "real" absinthe. So, that must mean that the Neto Costa would be excellent. Or...?
Distilled by Francois Guy in Pontarlier for absinthe merchant Alandia. Interesting to see this coming from Francois Guy as it goes against many of his own beliefs about absinthe.
The Absinthe Prométhée was a limited edition absinthe verte from Matter-Luginbühl. Recipe made by distillery apprentice Mike Schütz.
Every now and then Absinthe.de release prototypes of forthcoming releases to the public. They often offer a nice look into what is coming and the stages of development to get there. In this case a prototype of a "pre-ban replica", or rather a modern representation of a vintage absinthe.
After the trial batches of the 1797, this is the end result. The Absinthe Roquette 1797.
The French word Sauvage translates to "wild". The Absinthe Sauvage is anything but wild - it's a very sophisticated drink. Distilled in extremely small batches using wild-growing absinthe from the Pontarlier region.
Absinthe in a skull - sounds a little too goth to be good right? But as it turns out, Oliver Matter did it again. As always.
It's not very common to find old bottles from before 1900 which is why this is even more interesting than these vintage absinthes usually are. Of course it doesn't hurt that it's actually really really tasty as well.
Absinthe Supreme from Urbano pleme is the first absinthe to come from Slovenia. It is presented in a good looking, modern kind of olive-oil style bottle with modern looking labels. But is there more to it than fancy packaging?
It was only a matter of time until someone in the Czech Republic would actually make a decent absinthe. The blanche Toulouse-Lautrec is a good attempt and up to 2009 this was certainly the best the Czech had to offer.
Absinthe Valkyria is the first modern commercial Swedish distilled absinthe. Distilled at Sankta Annas Bränneri, a small batch distillery located in an old church in Lindesberg, Sweden.
Another one of those absinthes where the packaging cost more per bottle than what's inside. With a suggestion on the back label to mix the absinthe with an energy drink, I have very low expectations.
One of the first comercial absinthes to come out of Poland. Of course with a color looking like a nuclear disaster and more money spent on packaging and design than the contents of the bottle.
A Danish essence based absinthe made by wine merchant Arthur Fich's Vinhandel, Copenhagen around 1930-40.
Another absinthe verte from the prominent distillery Les Fils d'Emile Pernot in La Cluse-et-Mijoux, Pontarlier, France. Authentique is its name and yes - Authentique is its game.
