This Absinthe is something very special. It is distilled with 26! herbs. This gives this Absinthe an extreme complexity. If you already have some experiences with detecting different herbs in Absinthes, you will especially enjoy this Verte. But Eichelberger Verte 78 is not only for Absinthe professionals. The herbs build a very balanced taste which can be enjoyed by professionals and beginners alike. Like every Eichelberger Absinthe this one has a very thick, milky louche and an intense aroma.
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!
