Description

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.) Historically it was widely regarded as a "very dangerous drink" and is still banned in many countries! Turn-of-the-century Absinthe was fiercely potent stuff... The constituent herbs are macerated for about 8-10 days in alcohol and then distilled, the result being an emerald coloured spirit.
