Absinthe Blanche is an uncolored (clear) traditional Swiss Absinthe. During the era of Absinthe prohibition in Switzerland (1910-2005), bootleg Absinthe was often bottled colourless so as to be visually indistinct from other spirits.
Absinthe Verte begins as a blanche. The blanche is altered by a secondary maceration stage, in which a separate mixture of herbs is steeped into the clear distillate. This confers a green color and an intense flavour.
With its strong wormwood note and persistent bitterness, Heidi's Absinthe is strong in taste and yet remarkably soft and balanced. Made by hand with grain distillate, wormwood from Val de Travers, anise, fennel and hyssop.
INFO: Because the distillery uses natural herbs for coloring (no artificial colors), the green absinthe can turn brown after some time (which does not affect the taste).
