Absente Absinthe Liqueur With Spoon
Made from natural, traditional botanicals and a special century’s old recipe. Absente is distilled in the tradition of absinthe from a potion of fine herbs and spices. Following are the fine ingredients that combine to create the legendary absinthe: herbs, spices angelica, anise, wormwood, peppermint, star anise, and lemon balm.
Absente is the first (and for over a decade was the only) legal absinthe containing thujone in USA. Handcrafted in the French Alps, Absente is made by following one of the oldest recipes dating back to the 19th century, as well as by using the highest quality artisanal distillation methods and ingredients, including the infamous botanical wormwood (or artemisia absinthium), the key ingredient of the authentic absinthe recipe. Added to wormwood are other 8 botanicals, such as: mugwort, anise, peppermint and lemon balm, just to name a few..
Absente, Absinthe Refined is delightful in so many ways. It can be enjoyed mixed with water, with the classic sugar and water mixture with a slotted spoon. Absente is also perfect on the rocks or with crushed ice in aromatic cocktails (Mojito, Tonic…)
Enjoyed for hundreds of years in Europe as a restorative and cure for many types of maladies, Absinthe reached its peak popularity in late 19th and early 20th century Parisian bars and cafés where it was a favorite of Hemingway, Joyce, Van Gogh and Picasso. Similar to Gin, Absinthe is a neutral, high proof spirit (110 to 144) infused with a variety of herbs and botanicals. These typically include green anise, sweet fennel and grand wormwood. Absinthe is most often light green in color but can also be clear.
