Wormwood Society Editor Comments
Established in 1870 in Chambery in the Savoie region, C. Comoz specialized in a unique vermouth blanc (white vermouth) and an equally remarkable absinthe, "Absinthe des Alpes", based on a local recipe, and using mountain herbs.

The absinthe is extremely pale amber in colour , and louches almost white. My (David Nathan-Maister) belief is that this absinthe was originally a blanche, and the slight colour now is simply a result of a century of ageing. It's not possible to say this with absolute certainty, it may instead have been an exceptionally pale verte.
