Good evening fellow Absintheurs!
name is Alain Diable. My friends call me Alain.
You may know me as a frequent visitor of the Moulin Vert, the notorious
Absinthe bar of Montmartre. But I want make sure you know that I am
also a sexual dynamo, a promoter of all things bohemian, a hater of
the bourgeoisie and an devoted ALANDIA Absintheur!
weekend I was invited to join the jury of the Absinthe Fair Absinthiades
in Pontarlier. On this event the best Absinthes are awarded by a group
of experienced Absintheurs. This time a very interesting Absinthe
was presented. Absinthe FrancoSuisse,
a Suisse distilled Absinthe with a unique recipe adapted for the French
Absinthe market. And I have to say, the Swiss made their homework!
Without any doubt I have to admit (although I´m French..) that
they distill some decent Absinthes...The gold medal winner FrancoSuisse
tastes too good to sip only one glass. The smoothness of 55% alcohol
combined with only the finest locally grown herbs creates an unforgetable
mouthfeel. Uhh, I have to have another glass...
Au revoir mes amis,
ALANDIAs FrancoSuisse Absinthe
Production Method: Distillation
in cooper alembics
Color: Crystal clear distillate
and honey with a fresh note of peppermint
Taste: The symbiosis of anise
and peppermint creates a smooth mouthfeel with a potent wormwood smack
As milky as milky can be
: Golden Spoon on the Absinthiades 2005 and 2006
FrancoSuisse Absinthe has won several gold medals on the Absinthe
fair Absinthiades, the one and only Absinthe fair in Pontarlier, France.
Besides wormwood fennel, melissa and peppermint is used for the Absinthe
recipe. The aim of this Absinthe was to create a Suisse Absinthe with
a note of the French Absinthe culture. The result is a very unique
and refreshing taste. Like the La Bleue Clandestine FrancoSuisse has
a flowerish smell and an intensive milky louche. A definite choice
when you like the La Bleue Absinthes!
recommend to serve FrancoSuisse Absinthe with one (or none) sugar
cube and two parts cold water.
