Absinthe Original Bitter Spirit with 35mg of thujone is real absinthe prepared from carefully selected herbs, the main being grand wormwood - also known as grande absinthe, common wormwood or artemisia absinthium - the main herb in the genuine absinthe containing thujone. Absinthe Original Bitter Spirit is made by craftsmen distillers to a secret 200 year old Swiss absinthe recipe and it is said by connoisseurs to compare with the rarest French cognacs.
Every single detail from appearance to finish has been taken into account with a really nice balance of wormwood and fennel. Only the highest quality ingredients are used in its manufacture and it is guaranteed to be free of artificial colorants, additives and chemicals. Absinthe Original Bitter Spirit contains many herbal extracts including angelica, aniseed, fennel, hyssop, juniper, nutmeg and wormwood (which contains the neurotoxin thujone). We make sure the Artemisia that goes into Absinthe Original Bitter Spirit is of a particularly exceptional quality and of unparalleled strength. The plant is hand-picked in the wild, in the deep, dark mountainous Bohemian forests known as "Little Switzerland", and extra special attention is paid to the handling, storage and processing of this rare herb.
With a fine olive green color and 35 mg/l of thujone, Absinthe Original Bitter Spirit offers the connoisseur the genuine Belle Epoque absinthe experience and makes an impressively prestigious addition to any collection of fine liquors. A fine olive green color of Absinthe Bitter Spirit occurs as a result of its natural ingredients with no artificial colorings added. This also explains why the color may appear slightly different from one bottle to the next. Unlike Chartreuse Absinthes, our Absinthe Bitter Spirit is not as sweet, it is more bitter, well balanced taste so typical for Bohemian absinthes. Bitter Spirit is also much stronger as Chartreuse absinthe is produced with less alcohol (38%-55%) and very often is made without Thujone!
Drink it with a little sugar and with the purest, coldest water you can find. Or use it as a base for your favorite absinthe cocktail.
