ARTEMISIA DISTILLERIE , A LITTLE VISIT TO SWISS ABSINTHE スイスのアルテミシア蒸溜所へちょいと出かける
2nd distillerie of the day and ready to try the newst Claude-Alain Bugnon absinthe : BUTTERFLY and others that I can not mention yet because it was still a prototype .
It is our 3rd time to visit the ARTEMISIA DISTILLERIE and each time we come MR Bugnon come up with surprises . The first surprise of the day was the woormwood tea . I thought GREEN TEA was a bitter tea but I can tell if you like bitter stuffs , woormwood tea is the thing . It is super bitter.
ARTEMISIA DISTILLERIE is located in VAL-DE-TRAVERS where absinthe was born at the end of 18th century . Nowdays the region is famous for their Swiss “La Bleue “absinthe which has a distinctive flavour and taste .
After a pleasant degustation of absinthe it was time to go back to Pontarlier .
