Description

ALANDIA Verte Absinthe is a traditional green Absinthe which is distilled in Fougerolles, France, at a family-owned distillery dating back to 1859. The recipe is primarily focused on Absinthes iconic ingredient: Wormwood, also known as “La Grande Absinthe”. The plants are cultivated on the fertile fields of the distillery, which guarantees superior quality. Additionally, all processes orient at 19th century traditions: Like in the old days, the harvest is done by hand and the wormwood sprigs dry for several months in a wooden hut, the so called the “séchoir”.

True to the original is as well the production process. The recipe consists of a decent portion of wormwood (artemisia absinthium), which is carefully blended with several other traditional herbs, including green anise and fennel plus the artemisia species genepi. For the making of the final spirit, copper stills are used for distillation. After distillation the initially crystal-clear spirit is macerated with selected coloring herbs. They give ALANDIA Verte its natural green color. As direct sunlight would harm ALANDIA Verte’s natural green color, each bottle is wrapped in paper. Please store the bottle after opening in a dark place.

For free: This month you receive two Absinthe coasters for free. They are functionally designed and convince with premium quality. Overall, a beautiful accessory for friends of premium Heure Vertes!

 

ALANDIA Verte tasting notes:

We recommend ALANDIA Verte to first-timers and connoisseurs alike. Beginners will most likely appreciate the fresh taste of this Absinthe, not overpowering on anise therefore reducing the "licorice" taste. The latter can detect the individual components of the Absinthe: Fresh notes of anise, balanced out with slightly grassy tones of genepi finishing in a complex and floral taste of wormwood.

 

How to drink Absinthe the traditional way:

ALANDIA Verte is a smooth and balanced Absinthe with lovely notes of wormwood. We recommend a ratio of 1 part Absinthe to 2-3 parts ice-cold water. One sugar cube can be added to support the aromatic notes, but it is not really necessary. In the following video you can see the recommended,  traditional method of drinking Absinthe.

Great New Absinthe
Alandias' new absinthe is wonderful. Produced by the distinguished Devoille distillery, it's a bit of a change from their usual products. Most Devoille absinthes are very rich and kind of 'heavy', which I really like. This one, however, is very light and refreshing. By 'light' I don't mean it lacks flavor by any means. It has a predominant wormwood taste but it's not overpowering or bitter at all. It goes down very easily and once you've had a glass you'll want more

Just fantastic
Loved the coasters, green is so my color too!
The Strong68 is lovely. The flavor is intense but in a good way. For a person who's only ever had Lucid before... Well, this was just brilliant.

A great verte
This is one of the flagship absinthes of Alandia. It has a nice louche and a rich, complex and smooth flavor. You can't go wrong with this one (Maison ALANDIA).
