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 – 2112 Môtiers(NE)" location for the distilleries of Kübler , Willy Bovet and La Volete Fornoni. Môtiers 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 Môtiers. It could be an experiment or limited edition from the above distillers, or a true clandestine.

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 Môtiers, to the left of the falls is a cave with a
plaque dedicated to Rousseau.
