Proof66 Notes

Kubler Absinthe is said to be made in "historical cradle of absinthe," made from a traditional recipe dating to 1863 and J. Fritz Kubler in Motiers, Switzerland. The Blackmint Distillery was opened in 1875 and is the source of Kubler to this day. They use botanicals grown only in the Val-de-Travers region, whose micro-climate they say is particularly suited to those necessary herbs. Despite the green tinted bottle, it presents clear, in the Swiss "blue" style but louches with ice water and characterizes traditional absinthe.

Kubler Absinthe is a label owned and managed by Distillerie Willisauer in Switzerland but they source the absinthe from the Blackmint Distillery, which we have shown here as the source. The brand also is 25% owned by Altamar Brands.

The 2012 Beverage Testing Institute solemnly declared the Kubler "a very well made absinthe."

A authentic but very approachable Absinthe. Distillation is very good,even though it is a grain base (grape would be more ideal). Low price (especially for a white Absinthe, and if you factor in shipping from Europe, it is a steal by comparison to every other White Absinthe available).

Only negative is that it is a bit spare, not as complex as some of the other quality absinthe out there which kept it from getting a higher overall rating.
