These attractive 20cl flasks make an ideal introduction to Enigma Verte de Fougerolles.

Enigma Verte is an outstanding, unfiltered premium absinthe made from a combination of aromatic herbs and plants, including grande and petite wormwood, anise, fennel and hyssop. It uses a grape-base alcohol and is bottled at 72°, in order to hold its natural green colour and present its aromas to the fullest. Made by following the distillery's own technique of distilling each plant separately, blending the resulting full alcohol distillates and then finishing with an 'esprit vert' ('green spirit' - a natural maceration of additional plants in grape spirits, including veronica, a.k.a.'speedwell' - adding tea-like aromas) which is mixed in during the final colouring stage of production. It louches beautifully, and is complex and intense. Sure to please those who are searching for a spicy, yet traditional absinthe. It represents one of the best quality/cost values in modern traditional absinthes.

"This is a pale olive green. Intense, with that dustiness, but also chamomile tea, fennel. The louche is slow and mysterious, the green fairy awakening, out comes sage, Japanese green tea, and angelica. Complex, yet elusive. Things are slightly floaty, but it’s hard to say if it is the alcohol or the fairy at work." David Broom, Spectator, November 2009
