This bottle of Staroplzenecky Absinth is a smaller version of the 50cl bottle. Staroplzenecky Absinth is a strong alcoholic liquor made with herbal extracts, the main herb being wormwood, sweet fennel, and star anise. An emerald green absinthe with a distinctive bottle and taste. Staroplzenecky absinth is manufactured in the Czech Republic according to the traditional French absinthe recipe with 64% alcohol (128 proof) and a production method that has been improved in excess of today's required standards. Absinthe Staroplzenecky contains 10 mg/l of wormwood thujone.
Absinthe is now purported to be legal in the US as long as it is THUJONE FREE! How strange as real, wormwood absinthe is made from Artemisia Absinthium, the herb that gives absinthe it’s name, and produces thujone so what is the truth are they selling absinthe? We don't think so.
Did you know that...?
The French went on a propaganda campaign against absinthe not long after their grape vineyards started to recover from the blight that destroyed many of the vineyards. Absinthe was cheaper and definitely packed a more powerful punch than wine, opium was pretty popular too in France, hence the hallucinations when combined with spirits that were 140 proof. It was difficult to convince the French people to drink wine instead of absinthe so trashing it as poison was what they did. Kinda like what the church group did when they funded the movie Reefer Madness.
