Product of: Switzerland
Duplais Blanche is named after and based on a recipe from a 19th century French distiller’s manual 'Traité des Liqueurs et de la Distillation des Alcools' by P. Duplais. The botanicals used to make it are sourced from a Swiss plantation reserved exclusively for the finest pharmaceutical-grade herbs.
Coloured with natural chlorophyll so liable to fade and change from batch to batch. When first launched in Europe in July 2005, the label of Duplais absinthe, in keeping with other absinths from the family-owned Matter-Luginbühl distiller, featured different works of art. These labels, the so-called ‘Art Edition’ are still available but the now more commonly seen ‘Retro Edition’ label was created at the insistence of the American importer.

Crystal clear. With water louches chalky white.
Slight seafood note – think crab meat. This fades with water to anise and fennel.
Clean and fresh with pronounced anise and fennel with subdued barky herbal influence.
Anise and fennel.
