Absinthe is a very versatile spirit. This means that there are an incredible number of varieties with very different properties. We try to limit ourselves to serious varieties that could have existed in a similar form more than 100 years ago.
Absinthe is divided into the following production-related categories:
Oil mix:Products that are mixed with synthetic colors, flavors and sugar. They are not among our favourites.
Macerates:Herbs steeped in high-proof alcohol. Often very bitter in taste and not very pleasant.
Clear distillates:A herbal mixture is prepared in high-proof alcohol, then diluted with water and distilled. You can be sure of quality products here.
Naturally colored distillates:In principle the same as with the clear distillates, but with an additional production step in which the distillate is colored with special herbs . The result is usually very spicy and complex.
The right thing for beginners - You came across the topic of absinthe by chance, became curious and want to get to know absinthe.
The unmanageable variety does not exactly make it easy for beginners to find a suitable product. We therefore recommend starting with a high-quality but simple absinthe. 3 familiar flavors unlock much quicker than a large variety of flavors, some of which may be completely new to you.

I'm looking an absinthe with the highest possible thujone value
We get asked this question over and over again. In order to remain serious, we always point out that the amount of thujone that is permitted for absinthe (and much more) does not produce any intoxicating drug-like effects. No legislator would allow a spirit that (apart from alcohol) has a comparable effect to cannabis or other illegal drugs.
Thujone is a popular flavor component, however of absinthe. Incidentally, this aroma can also be found in other herbs, such as sage.
