An incredibly flexible addition to any bar. Derived from the aromatic plants of Artémisia Absinthium, Absinthe can be used to added to cocktails, enjoyed neat or over ice, and even enjoyed in the traditional way; by pouring water over a sugar cube into the glass of absinthe, whilst observing the change in colour.
This absithe is made from a blend of aniseed, mint, spice and absinthe. In the glass it takes a beautiful green appearance with tinges of yellow. Aromas of absinthe intermingle with spicy anise and mint. The mouth is a core of lively aniseed around which flavours of absinthe, lemon and mint are structured.
About the product Grande Absinthe (Artémisia Absinthium) had been used since ancient times to treat illnesses. When anise was added, the resulting elixir was a guaranteed success. At the time the concoctions were prescribed to the sick and secret of the elixir was very quickly bought over. This was how Absinthe came to be distilled for the first time, and it very quickly became established. In 1830, Absinthe was taken by the soldiers in their quest to conquer overseas territories. They used it to purify the water but also to cure their homesickness. On their return they continued to drink Absinthe.
