Our Eternal Absinthe is a light amber colour, like you might expect of a delicate rosé wine. It gets this from the addition of rose petals.
The fresh mountain breeze
Through a sweet-scented meadow
Stirs wild woodland dreams.
When we told people we were going to make an absinthe they reacted in one of two ways "Urg! I don't like absinthe!" or "Awesome, I can’t wait!" and then they launched into a Hangover Part # style account of what happened to them after they'd danced with la fée verte. Few distilled spirits have achieved the same notoriety as Absinthe, which was illegal for almost a century in some parts of europe and America. The hysteria surrounding absinthe involves one of its ingredients, wormwood, which contains thujone. For years, thujone was considered a hallucinogenic (Van Gough is said to have cut off his ear while under the influence) however, this has never been proven. Nevertheless, we tested Eternal Absinthe against EU food safety standards in a mass spectrometer at surrey university. You can be assured that the effects you experience are only due to the high alcohol content, which at 69% our Eternal Absinthe is pretty potent, so please drink responsibly.
