La Clandestine is a 100 percent natural, hand-crafted absinthe, which is distilled using a 1935 recipe. With its brilliant, crystal clear appearance, La Clandestine is known as a classic Swiss bleue, with a 53 percent alcohol by volume strength. It is characterised by a more fragrant, floral aroma and delicate flavours, and has none of the burn which can be noticed in many harsher absinthes. No other style of absinthe reflects the regionality and terroir that is unique to absinthe from the Val-de-Travers. La Clandestine (53 percent alcohol by volume / 106 proof) was officially launched to mark the Swiss legalisation of absinthe on 1 March 2005. Medals include first prize and title of Absinthe dor at the National Competition for Swiss Spirits, and a Gold Medal. La Clandestine is a complex absinthe based on more than ten plants, yet it is simple to enjoy and easy to appreciate its qualities.
