Absinthe Bizarre is distilled in small batches from 100% natural ingredients from Val de Travers. The distiller Philippe Martin from La Valote Martin Distillery works according to ancient family traditions and a unique recipe.
Absinthe Bizarre was created for Cabaret Bizarre, a themed show that combines the best of cabaret and burlesque performances. The Cabaret Bizarre is a cabinet of curiosities, a fair of monsters, a carnival of pleasures in the sense of Brecht and Fellini. All of this trapped in a bottle of absinthe, Absinthe Bizarre.
The Cabaret Bizarre takes its inspiration from the great Parisian and Berlin theatres of the 1920s. The spectacle, glamour and atmosphere of the old travelling circuses, the Théâtre de Vaudeville and the resplendent cabarets are awakened once again on a themed night, where the spectators are transported into a world full of myths and stories.
Its green colour comes from a symbiosis based on old recipes and the use of exotic plants for its natural colouring.
Pure and powerful. The aromas of the plants are precise and very well balanced, accompanied by a hint of fresh mint and coriander.
At the beginning, the note of wormwood is very present, followed by exotic aromas. Mild, particularly supple and powerful. Enjoy the absinthe Bizarre with iced water.
The intense flavours are balanced by the velvety texture left in the tongue
Absinthe La Valote Martin - Philippe Martin
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.
Today the distillery is led by his son Philippe Martin, who carries on a family know-how tradition, producing a variety of exceptional absinthes that follow traditional recipes.
