Czech Absinthe usually has its particular reputation, which isn’t that great. However Zufanek is the brave exception to the rule. He’s is a very talented distiller of fruit Eau de Vie and became fascinated by Absinthe some years ago. I still remember the first samples he sent me back then. Nowadays, his Absinthes are on par with the best French products. So, no more need to resist Czech Absinthe!

Von wegen, aus Tschechien kommt nur Schrott Absinthe. Die Produkte von Martin Zufanek sind ein echter Lichtblick. Man merkt sofort, daß da jemand mit sehr viel Engagement dahinter steckt. Sehr ausgewogen und harmonisch. Jederzeit wieder!
Complex and tasty!
Probably the biggest surprise in my absinthe drinking life. Czech absinthe which follows traditional absinthe heritage, very complex and floral. I was expecting simple recipe (due to its price) with a few herbs, but what a suprise! Highly recommended.
Floral and heavy
Well now. My taste buds may not be in the right order for a real absintheur but to me this was a little too floral (many nuances indeed though), almost to a point that I found it to remind me of some perfume (or even a bit soapy).
But for being a Czech absinthe I must say that they must\'ve found the right way to produce it.
St Antoine is probably more for a rainy autumn evening drink than a hot summers day eperitif?
