Product Description

Absinthe is a wonderful gift, it’s not only a noble spirit full of history, mythology, and tradition, but it’s also a lifestyle.

Real Absinthe Original 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. The complex and distinguished taste is rounded up by a well blended herbal mix with the pronounced taste of wormwood and coriander. In its elegant new bottle, this original absinthe looks good, it tastes good, it is good. Only the highest quality ingredients are used in its manufacture and it is guaranteed to be free of artificial colorants and chemicals.

Absinthe Original contains many herbal extracts including angelica, aniseed, coriander, hyssop, juniper, nutmeg and wormwood. Just as the original absinthes of Belle Époque, Absinthe Original too draws its powerful mind-bending buzz from Artemisia Absinthium, or grande wormwood, the notorious mountain plant whose strange effects have fascinated humanity since the times of the Ancients. Absinthe Original's fine deep olive green color 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. Absinthe Original may also change color over time. This is what makes our absinthe the most authentic and desired brand in the market. In fact, these subtle variations in color have always been considered the hallmark of high-quality, genuine, real Absinthe and in the Belle Époque period, it actually distinguished a genuine Absinthe from an imitation or artificially colored products.

Always drink absinthe well chilled either with a little sugar and water or as a base for your favorite absinthe drink. Either way, La Boheme Absinthe Original is one of life's great pleasures. And always remember, must be served over ice!

Did you know that...?
The medicinal use of wormwood dates back to at least 1600 B.C. The Egyptians used the bitter herb as an antiseptic, a stimulant and tonic, and as a remedy for fevers and menstrual pains. The Greeks prescribed it for jaundice, rheumatism, and anemia. The Romans used wormwood to aid digestion, for upset stomach and to cure bad breath. The leaves of the shrub-like perennial were also used to expel intestinal worms, hence its English name.

Not sure what I am doing wrong

Not sure what I am doing wrong - I am following the directions exactly but the absinthe won't louche. Have tried both methods - just dripping ice cold water over the sugar cube and soaking the sugar cube and lighting it. Absolutely no louche with either method.

Reply from Absinthe Original:
There appears to be some misunderstanding about louche, so let us clarify... Some absinthes become cloudy when water is added. This is due to the fact that the spirit contains water-insoluble components (primarily fennel and star anise), and hydration causes them to drop out of solution with the alcohol, turning the drink cloudy with a milky opaqueness known as louche.<br /> <br /> The vast majority of our goods do not "louche" when water is added since Bohemian absinthe recipes use significantly less anise and fennel in local absinthe preparation. There is a minor clouding of the entire Absinthe Original line, but no significant milky opalescence (louche). It has absolutely no impact on quality. French or Spanish absinthes are usually sweeter, therefore when mixed with water, they become more opaque.

They were great.

I had issues with a credit card payment and they worked very hard to fix the situation. <br /> I will have to say it’s one of the best absinthe I’ve ever had.
