H.R Giger Absinthe for Swiss Craft Distillers

The H.R Giger Absinthe range was created in collaboration with Swiss Craft Distillers and La Valote Martin Distillery, the design of the label was provided by the H.R Giger Museum.

Swiss Craft Distillers is a producer of original Swiss Absinthes that works with local distillers, maintaining the authenticity and tradition of the spirits. Each distiller carries on the knowledge passed on from generation to generation, each of them has a story to tell through their recipes

The secret of the Absinthe La Valote Martin lies in the appreciation for the product, its history and its region. In 1910, the absinthe production was banned by the Swiss government however many clandestine distillers kept the tradition alive.

Francis Martin was one of them and when the ban was lifted in 2005, he decided to produce absinthe in accordance with the law, maintaining the authenticity of the product and the region. His recipe has not changed, absintheurs appreciate it as ever before. The eldest among them can often be caught saying that it reminds them of the Absinthe of their youth.
