Who says that Deluxe Absinthes have to come from France or Suisse? This Absinthe is distilled in Germany, and proves that Germany is on the right track in terms of the Green Fairy. A very complex taste is combined with a natural green/yellow color. It was developed with the help of a distillers contest held by the German Absinthe Forum. Every Absintheur could send his "Hausgemachten" to a jury of experienced Absintheurs, and the winner was awarded with a distillation at the Eichelberger distillery. The result is here, try it and get excited about what will come next from the new Absinthe country, Germany...

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. The advertisement in the old newspaper „Neuesten Wegweiser für Fremde und Einheimische" shows, that he started to offer different spirits and essences, including an „Extracte d`Absinthe“. In his tavern "Zum Elefanten" ("To the Elephant"), the label shows the tavern and the elephant, his specialties were offered. His son, Otto Luis Nötzel, continued the flourishing buisness. 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.

Absinthe Review: Absinthe Eichelberger 68 Limitée

Absintheur: Ádám Oláh 23.07.2011

The best one out of 15 authentic distilled absinthes I've had. Nice colour, perfect louche ending up in the legendary 'icy opal', and a wonderfully balanced, yet dryish wormwoody-citrusy taste with the right amounts of anise/fennel. I haven't had the Jade line yet, but I'm not sure if they'll beat it.
Absintheur: Edward Clay 20.05.2011

I'll admit that it's got a unique flavour, something that might be a little off-putting at first. But once you've got used to the fact that the after-taste is actually quite pleasant, it becomes a hudely enjoyable absinthe. Louches beautifully. Relaxing effect. I wouldn't say no.

Once again the Ecihelbegers have produced a top of the line absinthe. Great aroma, louche and taste.
Absintheur: Topi Niskala 01.02.2007

Truly amazing absinthe. Louches nicely, very thick and cloudy. Both taste and scent were very herbal and earthy. There was anise, but it wasn't definitely dominant, and that's the way i prefer my absinthes. Even though i love anise, for me absinthe is all about complex herbal taste. This absinthe has a strange aftertaste, can't figure out what it is, but no other absinthe has it.... Oh, and very beautiful bottle also ;)
