This Absinthe is undiluted, straight from the alambic. Therefore the alcohol level is at 83.2%. For the recipe a lot of artemisia pontica is used. This makes this Absinthe one of a kind and remarkably different in taste. It´s louche is very, very thick. We can highly recommend this Absinthe. The recipe was by the way developed at the Eichelberger Absinthe festival in the year 2007.
Eichelberger - Absinthe distillation with tradition:
A great-grandfather of the Eichelberger family, Eduard Heinrich Nötzel, lived from 1800 to 1874 in Danzig. He assumed ownership of the wood wholesale trade business of his father but expanded the business very soon. An advertisement in an old newspaper shows, that he started to offer different spirits and essences, including an „Extracte d`Absinthe“. In his tavern "Zum Elefanten" ("To the Elephant") his specialties were offered. His son, Otto Luis Nötzel, continued the flourishing business. Unfortunately he died young and his son was too young to manage the company. Therefore the business was shut down around 1900. Due to the two world wars the history of the family heritage was almost forgotten. Until in 1997 the Wild family started again with the production of Absinthe in the Eichelberger distillery!
