Description

Although the label of the Absinthe is futuristic, the spirit inside the bottle is very traditional as well. The recipe basis for this quality Absinthe is the same as for the other Duplais (Verte and Blanche) a formula from the well known book of P. Duplais from the 19th century. It is made in Switzerland by the Matter distillery. The bottles we sell are the last bottles of Duplais Balance. As soon as the bottles are sold there will no longer be this Absinthe, Matter has stopped the production. Therefore this Absinthe might as well be of interest for collectors. The label and name of Duplais Balance is an hommage to the English musician John Balance (1962-2004). His early work and wide-ranging collaborations made him one of the most influential figures in the industrial, experimental minimalist and neofolk music scenes. With his experimental music group Coil he was responsible for vocals, lyrics, chants, synthetics and various esoteric sound-making instruments and devices. Worth mentioning is as well the pale green tint of this Absinthe. The aroma really opens up when adding icecold water – the delicate fragrance spreads around the room immediately.

 

Different label, same Duplais Absinthe:

This is the smaller 0.5 liter bottle of Duplais Balance. The label is different in comparison to the 0.7 liter bottle, which you can also buy in our store. Nevertheless the content is the same, therefore you can decide, which label you like more.

 

How to drink Absinthe properly:

In the following video you can see how you prepare Absinthe the traditional French way. You need an Absinthe glass, an Absinthe spoon, sugar cubes and ice cold water for this traditional ritual. This is how it works: You place the Absinthe spoon on the rim of the glass, put a sugar cube on top and slowly add water. The Absinthe in the glass blends with water and magically louches from green to an opalescent white color. Santé, your Absinthe glass is prepared.

Duplais Balance
I found this hybrid very nice for a change of pace. It is a pale green and when louched turns creamy almost white. Not sure if this is for everyone but recommend you try it if intrigued by the recipe of green & white. So, this is an occasional absinthe for me. This absinthe is dedicated to musician Jhon Balance & label art by Peter Christopherson bothof band COIL. That was another reason for my purchase.
