    Absinthe Kits (Wormwood)

    Absinthe liquor is an alcoholic drink made with an extract from wormwood (Artemisia absinthium). For over 200 years, absinthe has enjoyed the reputation of being a creativity enhancer and aphrodisiac. It is an emerald green absinthe drink, which is very bitter (due to the presence of absinthin) and is therefore traditionally poured over a perforated absinthe spoon full of sugar into a glass of water.

    Said to have been popular with the likes of Van Gogh, Monet, Picasso and Hemingway, absinthe is rapidly regaining a wide following. Henri-Louis Pernod's original absinthe recipe included angelica, aniseed, fennel, hyssop, juniper, nutmeg and wormwood (which contains the neurotoxin thujone).

    Some versions then have chlorophyll added to give absinthe a green hue thus giving rise to its romantic nickname "La Fée Verte" or the green fairy. Absinthe distilled from wormwood is commonly available in Central Europe, Spain and France, but both the product and the technique is banned almost every else. That being said, naturally steeped strong absinthe is also becoming well liked as a base for cocktails all over the modern world and this is why we offer these absinthe kits to you now.

    The oldest technique for making absinthe used the simple method of steeping wormwood and the other ingredients in an alcoholic drink, such as vodka, beer or wine is the most ritualistic and authentic way of making absinthe. This method of making absinthe is far simpler, quicker and less likely to be illegal than any method involving heating the alcohol and herbs (which my contravene local distillation regulations). It also produces very acceptable results.

    We have created for you this unique kit that has:

    • a signature formulation of various strains of wormwood and extracts

    • a highly recommended authentic formula of flavoring agents (150 year old)

    • pure cane sugar cubes

    • 2 organic cotton muslin strain bags

    • lab quality glass ware

    • a pamphlet on absinth and complete instructions

    Of course, as with all things in life, products of this quality cost a little more. Drink it with a little sugar and water or as a base for your favorite cocktail. Either way, Absinthe is one of life's great pleasures.

    The magical quality is best described by the poet, Ernest Dowson, one of the best known of the Decadents, an absinthian and, unusually for the time, an Englishman, Dowson understood the romantic properties of the green spirit: "Whiskey and beer are for fools," he once said; "absinthe has the power of the magicians; it can wipe out or renew the past, and annul or foretell the future."

    Absinthe serving instructions:

    First you pour roughly three ounces of absinthe into a heavy parfait-style stemmed absinthe glass. A perforated absinthe spoon (sometimes very elaborately so) is set upon the rim of the glass and on the spoon is placed a cube of sugar. Ice-cold water is ever so slowly dripped from a glass carafe designed specifically for that purpose, onto the cube. The sugar dissolves and you continue pouring until the ratio of absinthe to water is about two to five parts, depending upon your taste and fortitude. Give the absinthe drink a spin with the spoon and drink like you dripped - slowly.
