Distilled from 100% natural ingredients, this absinthe is produced in small batches with a very limited number of bottles available. Absinthe Bizarre is made at the DuVallon Distillery by Jean-Jacques Charrère according to ancient family traditions and a unique old recipe.
The Cabaret Bizarre takes its inspiration from the great Parisian and Berlin theaters of the 1920’s. The spectacle, glamour and atmosphere of the old traveling circuses, the Théâtre de Vaudeville and the resplendent cabarets are awaken once again on a themed night, where the spectators are transported into a world full of myths and stories. The Cabaret Bizarre is a cabinet of curiosities, a fair of monsters, a carnival of pleasures in the sense of Brecht and Fellini. All this is traped in a bottle of absinthe, Absinthe Bizarre.
Full-bodied; at first a very strong note of wormwood that slowly fades followed by a subtle sweetness and an exotic breeze.
A rich symbiosis based on old recipes and the use of exotic plants for the green color. Strong in the mouth and a soft sensation on the tongue
Distillery Duvallon - Couvet / Val-de-Travers, Switzerland - A Family Tradition
In 1951 Monsieur Matthey-Claudet began a clandestine absinthe distillation in the mountains outside Fleurier, in the Val-de-Travers, Switzerland. He was a blacksmith in Môtiers, who built his own still and taught himself the art of distillation. Over the years he developed a recipe that produced a wonderful white absinthe subtle and complex, with just a touch bitterness of grande wormwood and a vivid taste of fresh botanicals.
Later on Marta Charrère - the mother of the current distiller: Jean-Jacques Charrère - took over the production. The small-scale family run clandestine distillation operation lasted over 40 years, until 2005 when absinthe was finally legalised again in Switzerland and the distillery could operate on a proper commercial basis.
