Absinthe is an anise-flavoured spirit with a unique mystique. Absinthe's notoriety and cultural significance have led to the prevalent misconception that the drink can cause hallucinations due to the active ingredient, thujone-in reality the thujone level is so low that any effects experienced are entirely due to absinthe's high alcoholic strength.
A concentrated bitters made with the various herbs and plants used to flavour absinthe. L'Extreme d'Absente is high in alcohol and meant to be added a few drops at a time to other drinks - we really don't recommend drinking this on its own...
An impressive jump into a new spirits category for brewer Adnams, following up their vodkas and Spirit of Broadside with a pair of absinthes. This is the more conventional of the two, macerated with traditional botanicals and distilled before being infused with further green plants to give its olive colour.
A particularly interesting product from brewer Adnams, stretching their young distillery even further. Not only is this a traditionally made absinthe, distilled and macerated, it is also made in England. Oh, it's also red. The colour comes from a final maceration with hibiscus flowers, adding in floral and fruity notes.
The absinthe from the company that opened the first absinthe distillery in 1805. Pernod was the most popular brand of absinthe until it was banned in 1915 and this post-ban release is inspired by that old recipe.
La Fée Absinthe Parisienne is distilled in Paris based on a 19th Century recipe containing wormwood and is the only absinthe authenticated by Marie-Claude Delahaye, founder and curator of the absinthe museum.
A verte absinthe expansion to the La Maison Fontaine, complimenting their much loved blanche. The natural green colouring comes from the mix of herbal botanicals steeped in the spirit before bottling. A classicly styled green absinthe.
