My father brought this back from Switzerland last week, never heard of this one before. This is a pretty straightforward Bleue from the Val-de-Travers. Nonetheless quite tasty.

I never heard of it, either. Is it actual "clandestine"?
I think, therefore I am. Or am I over-thinking? I am thinking it over...

That label sure looks like it came off a home deskjet printer. :)

From what I found,


It looks like the "2112" comes from the postal Municipality address within the VdT: "CH ľ 2112 M˘tiers(NE)" location for the distilleries of KŘbler , Willy Bovet and La Volete Fornoni. M˘tiers is also connected with the famous philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau.

Perhaps Alan Moss would have more specific information, but if not at least you can conclude that it most likely came from M˘tiers. It could be an experiment or limited edition from the above distillers, or a true clandestine.


edit
it could also be something to do with an art festival, see this link

No more information, but I agree your conclusion.

Claude-Alain makes limited edition batches from time to time. A few hundred bottles for the boat called "Absinthe" and a very big bottle for a local celebrity.

As an American over 40, Rush was the first thing to come to mind.

The picture on the label looks like this photo of a waterfall in M˘tiers, to the left of the falls is a cave with a
plaque dedicated to Rousseau.
