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.
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.
A successful symbiosis based on old recipes and the use of exotic plants for the green colouring. Strong on the palate but soft on the tongue
Distillery Duvallon - Couvet / Val-de-Travers, Switzerland - A family tradition
In 1951, Monsieur Matthey-Claudet began secretly distilling absinthe in the mountains outside Fleurier, in 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 resulted in a wonderful white Absinthe, subtle and complex, with just a hint of bitterness of great wormwood and a lively taste of fresh plants.
Later Marta Charrère - the mother of the present distillery: Jean-Jacques Charrère - took over the production. The small family business of secret distillation lasted for over 40 years until in 2005 the Absinthe production in Switzerland was finally legalised again and the distillery could work on a proper commercial basis.
