Details

Absinthe Maison ALANDIA is distilled with 16 different herbs, including artemisia absinthium, artemisia pontica, green anise, veronica officinalis, angelica roots, fennel and coriander seeds. Besides the complexity of the Absinthe recipe, a strong focus is put into the process of distillation. Each step is handcrafted by a small family owned German distillery located in the Bavarian Forest. Only 30 liter can be distilled in one batch and like in the old days, wood is used to heat the alembic. Each Absinthe distillation runs for 10 hours, allowing all the herbal tones to be set free. After distillation, additional herbs are added to create Maison ALANDIA´s poetical natural green color. The final product is matured for several weeks to develop its complex body, and full character. The taste of pontica is present when you drink this Absinthe, anise is only in the background, together with a slightly sweet chocolate smack. One sip and you will taste why this Absinthe is something special: A Historical Dedication.

 

The Absinthe tradition of the Eichelberger Family:

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, when the Wild family started again with the production of Absinthe in the Eichelberger distillery.

Classy Absinthe
The bottle has a real cork and is sealed. I personally like this, as it reminds me of the good old days. The absinthe has a very delicious scent, once you open the bottle. The color of the absinthe itself is green, but not too dark, very elegant. The louche is there, actually pretty thick, and once again the absinthe spreads an intense aroma once it blends with water. One sip and you fall in love with the complexity of the herbs, I prepare it with one sugar cube. Overall, will buy it again!

I reviewed this superb absinthe several years ago. I just got a bottle and haven\'t had it in a while. I forgot how good it is. It\'s excellent. Very rich, full bodied and full flavored. Great aroma, louche, and flavor. If you like gourmet absinthes, give this one a try!
