Who says that Premium Absinthes have to come from France or Switzerland? 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. 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!
