Absinthe was the trademark drink during the heady days of 19th century Paris artists. Famous artists, writers and poets like Picasso, Baudelaire, Hemingway, Degas, Manet, Toulouse-Lautrec and Oscar Wilde all heavily indulged in it. Maybe it was the allure of The Green Fairy, or maybe it helped inspire their creativy.Absinthe has been banned in the United States since 1915 because of reports of strong hallucinations, however, has recently made its way back into the market. This Absente, or Absinthe Refined, is a modern version of the original Absinthe recipe. It still exhibits the same aromatic, dazzling emerald green liquer made from a combination of exotic botanicals. The difference comes in the Wormwood, the botanical that caused the initial ban, instead being replaced with a cousin called Southern Wormwood. The Absente is now a blend of Angelica, Anise, Peppermint, Southern Wormwood, and Star Anise, creating a wonderfully aromatic, flavourful liquer.
