Duplais Swiss Absinthe Verte was first introduced to the European Market in July 2005. Since then, it has gone on to become a standard within the high-quality distilled absinthe category. It has the distinction of being the first verte absinthe to be released in Switzerland since the 1910 ban was lifted. Duplais Swiss Absinthe Verte’s recipe is based directly on the highest quality absinthe Suisse protocols from the important 19th century French distiller’s manual: Traité des Liqueurs et de la Distillation des Alcools by P. Duplais, which is where Absinthe Duplais takes its name.
Duplais Swiss Absinthe Verte is created with wormwood and other botanicals, which are locally sourced and grown on a Swiss plantation reserved exclusively for the finest pharmaceutical-grade herbs. The distillate is reduced to final strength using spring water from the Alps. The chlorophyll from aromatic plants, which are infused in the distillate after distillation, naturally colors Duplais Swiss Absinthe Verte. As a naturally colored product, Duplais will experience some color changes as the chlorophyll oxidizes over time and will eventually achieve the legendary "dead leaf" color, a telling characteristic of the finest vintage absinthes. In the glass, Duplais has a unique golden green hue. The slow-forming louche results in a thick, almost opaque golden green with amber highlights. Following the louche, the complex herbal aromatics unfurl slowly, revealing themselves as lifted wormwood, fennel, and spice. The palate is textured, rich, and creamy with substanial fennel and wormwood flavors. This is a powerful yet controlled spirit that achieves impeccable balance.
