Intro

The production of Absinthe – also called “Green Fairy” was prohibited for over 90 years. Since 2005 the mythical liquor, which is based on the distillation of various plants and herbs, can again be legally consumed.

This liquor with its tasty bitterness originated in the Val de Travers. Absinthe was first distilled in the 18th century in the Val de Travers as a medicinal elixir from wormwood, aniseed, fennel and other herbs; today it is popular once again, even used to flavour chocolates and pastries.

On the "Route de l'Absinth" trail, the seductive taste of forbidden fruit is explored. Several distilleries offer tours and tastings. Every day a selected distillery opens its doors to the public. Here you’ll discover how absinthe is made and hear some fascinating tales – all the more thrilling with each sip of the highly alcoholic spirit.
