On the eve of the 20th century, the popularity of cycling led the city of Geneva to multiply projects for the construction of a velodrome. In 1922, the track in Plan-les-Ouates was the theatre of many popular events meetings. If the site had to be demolished in 1968 for security reasons (anti-collapse test positive), the opening in great pomp and circumstance of the Espace Velodrome in 2004 rekindled the people's fervour for social gatherings. The performance venue and state-of-the-art sports hall puts the local culture back on track!

But more than an alcohol factory, Absintissimo is a place for enthusiasts to share their passion for the "green fairy", while heady fragrances float around the rooms... And the distillery proposes readings, unique encounters, and tastings in its Alambic Bar, combining work and pleasure, like an elixir against the doom and gloom...
