Absente - Absinthe (100ml)
Absente is indeed the real deal! Absente was the first legal Absinthe in the United States since 1915. In fact, the same process that went into producing the original absinthes from 19th century France was strictly adhered to in creating Absente. Absente is made with a full measure of the legendary botanical, wormwood, also known as artemisia absinthium.
Absente is technically classified as a Verte. Verte (“green” in French) absinthe begins as a blanche (“white” in French). The distillate is altered by a coloring step whereby a mixture of herbs comes in contact with the clear distillate. This process intensifies the herbal flavor and imparts an emerald green hue from the chlorophyll in the herbs. This coloration step is a technique created and mastered by the French.
Absente is made from very traditional absinthe botanicals, including the legendary wormwood, or artemisia absinthium. Some of the other botanicals include sweet anise, star anise, lemon balm and peppermint. Learn more about our botanicals.
