Swiss Style Absinthe

Pale yellow/green. Fragrant nose with floral notes to start which are soon overtaken by full power of wormwood, fennel, anise and hyssop. The addition of the cold water brought a slow and steady forming, but complete louche and released another wave of aromatics similar to the first but in even greater volume. Great range of mountain herbs adds to the complexity. A great re-construction of the absinthe of history.

The distillery of C.F. Berger was founded in Couvet, in the canton of Neufchatel, Switzerland in 1823. The Berger distillery crafted several Swiss style absinthes, the most famous of these being the C. F. Berger 65 degree absinthe verte, which earned its status as one of the premier absinthes of the 19th century. Unfortunately, absinthe crafting at the Berger distillery came to a halt with the Swiss ban of 1910, and the distillery ceased all activities in Switzerland shortly thereafter.

This fine Swiss absinthe was almost lost forever if it had not been for the resurfacing of original, unopened bottles, which Jade Liqueurs was able to secure for preservation. Using proprietary analytical techniques, Jade Liqueurs has painstakingly resurrected this beautiful liquor from extinction.

Jade C.F. Berger is an accurate recreation of the original C.F. Berger 65 absinthe verte, and is identical to the fine original down to incredibly minute details. C.F. Berger Absinthe Superieure is crafted entirely by hand using select botanicals from the original regions, and is carefully distilled in ancient copper absinthe alembics. This absinthe delivers an experience characteristic of the best Swiss style absinthes. Upon tasting C.F. Berger Absinthe Superieure, the connoisseur will be pleasantly stimulated with the way it quickly asserts its refined fortitude with a bold fragrant scent, full-bodied, rounded mouthfeel, and distinct herbal notes that linger on the palate.

Jade C.F. Berger Absinthe Superieure recalls a century-old tradition of fine Swiss style absinthes, and enables the connoisseur to savour a journey into history. Jade C.F. Berger serves as both an ideal aperitif and digestive to follow even the heartiest of dining selections, and is not overpowered by one's favourite Cuban cigar.
