ABSINTHE

A DRINK FOR RESPONSBILE DRINKERS. Absinthe is one of history’s most notorious liqueurs - romanticised and maligned in equal measure. Sipped by artists and writers, namely Oscar Wilde, Monet, Picasso, and Van Gogh, for creative inspiration.

In 1915 the French Government, and subsequently other countries, banned Absinthe due to the main ingredient - Wormwood - believed to cause hallucinations. Today the liqueur is made with herbal extracts - the main one being "Aniseed" and the strength is no different to cask strength spirits and "Over-proof" rums.

It is a bitter liqueur and is best consumed after diluting with water and sugar. Absinthe is an aromatic, dry and highly alcoholic herbal spirit. It contains anis (Liquorice flavour) and the notorious wormwood plant (Artemisa) as well as optional various other aromatic components, such as peppermint, cloves, cinnamon, (the juice of spinach, nettles and parsley are also sometimes used.)
