Making Absinthe in Switzerland

A very fun article form Food Republic. it starts this way

In the bright green hills of Boveresse on the border of Switzerland and France, down a sleepy street lined with cobblestones, in an old, dusty house, you will find Philippe Martin quietly distilling absinthe. This is where Absinthe la Valote Martin is created, and the 45-year-old has been making the spirit since 2014. Martin took over the business from his father, Francis, who ran a clandestine operation during the almost century-long absinthe ban.
